Eaton and his primary opponent, Rick Daugherty, were both relatively unknown in the 15th District before running for Congress. They held similar viewpoints on many issues; only their respective stances on abortion set them apart. Eaton, who was a Republican until the week he declared his candidacy, is pro-choice. Daugherty, on the other hand, is vocally pro-life. Eaton has also shown to be a more adept fundraiser than Daugherty.
