Jackson's website highlighted the following issues:
- Excerpt: "I know that private business create jobs–not the government. I will support efforts to help businesses hire employees. Many taxes and regulations are burdens on businesses, and therefore, the economy."
- Excerpt: "I believe the state budget process is broken because it focuses on the percentage of increase from one year to the next. I will fight to implement zero-based budgeting to examine and ensure that each and every state program is providing the value to the public it was intended to."
- Excerpt: "those immigrants who migrated legally should not be punished by granting illegal immigrants amnesty. I do not support amnesty."
- Excerpt: "I believe that teachers should be free to teach their students without excessive, burdensome paperwork and needless regulations."
- Excerpt: "I believe we must pass medical malpractice reform because lawsuit abuse and skyrocketing jury awards are driving up the cost of health insurance for working families. We must continue to fight to reign in these lawsuits and get our insurance costs under control."

The two men running to replace Sen. Charlie Albertson in the General Assembly claimed the other was hitting "below the belt" with campaign mailers. The mailers claimed among other things that Hudson failed to properly prosecute an illegal immigrant who ultimately drove drunk and killed a teacher in Brunswick County and Jackson failed to care for a migrant worker who suffered a severe heat stroke and later fell into a coma. His family was finally paid $4 million by an insurance company.
