Cheney's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Job Creation
- Excerpt: "The state’s current unemployment rate is unacceptable. I have spoken with a troubling number of friends and neighbors who have either had their hours cut or have lost their jobs altogether."
- Balancing the Budget
- Excerpt: "For far too long politicians in Springfield have been serving the needs of special interests and leaving us with the bill. Even after passing a massive tax hike, the State of Illinois is still faced with a structural deficit as well as billions of dollars of unpaid bills"
