Moore's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Supporting our Veterans
- Excerpt: "Our state must do what it can to help those veterans and their families. They have borne a heavy burden for us and we must meet our obligation to them."
- Controlling Spending
- Excerpt: "Our state government must live within its means, just as each household does. We cannot afford to waste tax dollars that are vitally needed for schools, transportation and social programs."
- Education Is the Paramount Duty of the State
- Excerpt: "The situation will continue to get worse as long as we don't consider education the "paramount duty" of state government -- as it says in our state constitution. Budget cuts have forced community colleges and universities to raise tuition rates, reducing the access to education."
Moore ran in the 2012 election for Washington House of Representatives, District 30a. Moore was defeated by Roger Flygare and Linda Kochmar in the August 7 blanket primary election. They face each other in the general election, which took place on November 6, 2012.
