Pike's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Repeal Job Killing Regulations
- Excerpt: "Over the last few years, the Department of Ecology launched an all out assault on business and enterprise in Washington State. It’s time to restore legislative oversight on bureaucrats in Olympia who’s only agenda is to stop growth and hurt small business. To grow jobs, we must change."
- Reform State Government
- Excerpt: "Liz fully supports Rob McKenna’s plan to utilize performance management practices to reform state agencies. Let’s demand every leader in government embrace accountability, high standards, efficiency, cost savings and most of all, customer satisfaction! It’s time to end state monopolies and encourage private sector competition. Liz believes our state workers will rise to the occasion to deliver services efficiently while saving precious taxpayer dollars. As a state, we have to change."
- Prioritize Spending, Protect Our Most Vulnerable
- Excerpt: "State government cannot do it all. We need to focus on what government can do best and then eliminate services the private sector can perform more efficiently. For the last 30 years, the same crowd has been running the show in Olympia. It’s time to send business leaders to our capitol who will usher in free enterprise principals such as innovation, work ethic, cost consciousness and customer satisfaction."
- Reform Public Education
- Excerpt: "Washington State law guarantees every child a quality education, no matter what district they live in. It’s time to obey our state constitution and make school funding a top priority while implementing reform! "
- Reform Costly Health Insurance Mandates
- Excerpt: "Today, a half million citizens in Washington State are without health insurance. In 2014, under Affordable Healthcare Act, these patients will be eligible to be on the Medicaid system. This will put tremendous pressure on an already fragile system."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
