Faircloth's website reprised themes from the 2012 campaign and added the following:
Texas Windstorm Insurance
- Excerpt: "Ravaged by lawsuits and mismanagement, this organization needs a complete overhaul. My leadership has worked with the Legislature and the industry to propose workable solutions for seacoast residents."
Faircloth's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "Our government should work like a business. Overtaxing prevents growth. Limiting business means limiting jobs. I want to encourage small business and bring relief from over regulation. Minimizing frivolous lawsuits to bring relief to business in Texas."
- Excerpt: "I believe that with each child there comes a unique set of educational needs. The same exact formula or type of education is not fitting for all. Public education is a demanding and challenging part of our Texas economy. I support teachers everywhere."
- Excerpt: "I believe that Texas is a most desirable place to want to live and work. What we need to do, however, is secure our borders. Immigration should include proving that you are not a burden to your new country."
