DeGree's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Supporting Small Businesses, Growing the Local Economy
- Excerpt: "Our small businesses are the backbone of our economy. More than half of the new jobs created in Minnesota are created by small businesses. When our local businesses do well, our state does well."
- Excerpt: "Our children are literally the future of our community. Well-educated children become well-educated, highly-skilled adults with gainful employment, contributing back to the community that raised them. When our children thrive, our neighborhoods thrive and our state thrives."
Reducing Property Taxes
- Excerpt: "It is time for responsible government; a government which balances its own budget without shifting the burden to everyone else."
Protecting our Freedoms
- Excerpt: "All people have a right to live with dignity in this country. Government is supposed to protect our freedom, not attack it."
Representation that Works for YOU
- Excerpt: "We need legislation that helps our community. We need legislation that creates jobs and strengthens our economy."
