Conger's campaign website listed three main issues:
- Jobs: "The recent tax increases are projected to put up to another 70,000 of us out of work...We need to embrace Oregon's potential and lower the barriers to business and job creation. It is imperative that we invest in the future by promoting the development of new ventures and new technologies that will create new jobs and new tax revenue. The legislature has fallen down on the job and it is sending the wrong message to local small businesses."
- Education: "We can increase the quality and availability of education by learning from and expanding programs that work now...To do so, we must use technology to empower teachers and provide better educational content at a fraction of the cost, increase the array of educational options available to our children and encourage families and students to choose the education that’s best for them."
- Healthcare: "The problem with healthcare in America is runaway costs. We need to work on preserving all the good of our current system by making thoughtful changes aimed not at sweeping reform, but on reducing cost and improving results...We can encourage health and wellness, shift to an outcome based system for * Health Care, and enact common sense malpractice reform so the patient and doctor are driving healthcare decisions, not lawyers and insurance companies."
- New Energy: "I am a strong believer in our state’s power to leverage innovative new technologies in renewable energy to create new jobs and a cleaner environment... We can and should be at the forefront of developing renewable energy technology. This will be a major priority for me and is an area where I will work across party lines to find opportunities and sensible solutions"
