Leach's website highlights the following campaign themes:
Grow and Strengthen our Economy
- "Taxes should be lowered so that the Texans can keep more of what they earn."
- "I am committed to removing unnecessary regulations so that businesses can grow and create new jobs. I will also actively work against the creation of any new governmental and bureaucratic red-tape."
Stop Frivolous Lawsuits
- "This includes working to institute a true loser-pays system, encouraging the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution procedures such as mediation and arbitration, cutting back on wasteful discovery methods and eliminating needless juror profiling."
Uphold the Tenth Amendment
- "I will fight any efforts to erode the rights granted to the States under the Tenth Amendment. The Federal Government is expanding and intruding on our constitutionally-guaranteed States’ rights at an alarming rate. This must stop."
Balance the State Budget
- "The budget shortfall expected in 2013 must be addressed head on with clear and bold leadership, without the continued accounting gimmicks designed to mislead taxpayers."
- "I will fight any effort to increase taxes or tap into the Rainy Day Fund. I will also work to make the system honest and transparent to the taxpayers."
At the beginning of the 2013 legislative session, Leach served on the following committees:
|Texas Committee Assignments, 2013|

|• Rules & Resolutions|
|• Urban Affairs|
