McGeehan's website highlights the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "I received an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association. During my time in the House of Delegates, I introduced the first Tenth Amendment bill on firearms, referred to as the “West Virginia Firearms Freedom Act”. Utilizing the authority of the Constitution and the ability for the sovereign states to govern themselves, the bill simply stated that if a firearm was manufactured in the state of West Virginia, and kept within our state’s borders, the firearm (and its manufacturer) would not be subject to federal regulation."
- Excerpt: "All life must be preserved and held by society as a cherished gift from our Creator. Rights do not come from the government, and thus, they cannot be taken away by the government. During my time in the House of Delegates, I worked on many bills that protected life. I have found that one way to endorse life is to strip away tax-payer funding from abortion procedures. Taxes must never be used for this purpose and I will never waiver on this firm commitment to a policy of “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness."
- Excerpt: "In the long run, largesse in centralized government tends to destroy production, leads to less savings, increases consumption, causes the business cycle and our economic depressions, and creates conditions whereby no one is served except those special interests in Charleston. Cutting back the scale of permits, licenses, fees, taxes, and burdensome mandates is critical to allowing our economy to flourish."
McGeehan ran in the 2012 election for West Virginia State Senate, District 1. McGeehan ran unopposed in the May 8 primary election and was defeated by incumbent Jack Yost (D) in the general election which took place on November 6, 2012.
