Wallace's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Job Creation
Excerpt: "Since the 67% income tax increase earlier this year, we’ve lost over 90,000 jobs in Illinois and counting. We need to create a business friendly policy climate in Illinois to bring more jobs and economic opportunity to our state."
