Erickson's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Jobs, Business, and the Economy
- Excerpt: "I am running in order to help create middle income jobs for people in our district. The middle class is what makes our nation great."
- Excerpt: "Our children are just as deserving as the students in the Twin Cities suburbs and other property-rich school districts. While our districts are passing referendums to keep the lights on, they have the resources to add indoor golf practice facilities."
Gun Rights and the Environment
- Excerpt: "I am a lifelong hunter and gun owner. One of my major issues is to provide and maintain access to a great outdoor experience. This not only adds to our quality of life, it also adds to our local economies."
Hancock/Pawlenty Cuts to Local Governments
- Excerpt: "Make no mistake. Income tax decreases for the wealthy in the Twin Cities are financed by property tax increases on local seniors and other property owners, including our locally owned businesses."
Church and State
- Excerpt: "While there is no doubt the teachings of the Church influence my views, a conversation with my pastor affirms the need for separation of the government and the church. He joked, “We have enough to do without telling the government what they should do."

The Taxpayers League of Minnesota, a Minnesota-based taxpayer advocacy organization, releases a legislative scorecard for the Minnesota House of Representatives and Minnesota State Senate once a year. The scorecard gives each legislator a score based on how they voted in the prior legislative term on tax issues and “their efforts to balance the state budget without a tax increase.” The organization also compiles a legislator’s individual "Lifetime Score."
