Lucas' website highlighted the following campaign issues:
- "Common Sense Issue #1:Jobs" - "I believe that the quickest way to improve the economy of our state is to increase the number of quality jobs by reducing many of the unnecessary, job-killing state taxes that currently exist."
- "Common Sense Issue #2:Taxes" - "The less taxes each West Virginian has to pay, the more disposable income each West Virginian has to spend in West Virginia businesses."
- "Common Sense Issue #3:The role of Government" - "I believe that government should be responsible for protecting it's citizens, creating and maintaining it's infrastructure, balancing the state budget, listening to the voice of each citizen, and representing it's citizens with nonpartisan integrity."
- "Common Sense Issue #4:Abortion" - "I value every life, from conception to the hospital bed or hospice house. I do not understand how any parent or physician can willingly end the life of another human being.
- "Common Sense Issue #5:Marriage" - "I believe in the traditional definition of marriage between one man and one woman."
