Scarmardo's campaign website lists the following issues:
- Bring more jobs to Arizona
- Excerpt: "We need to continue using innovative tools to attract capital investment and jobs to our state. This means supporting Science Foundation Arizona, stopping the waste of taxpayer dollars on Governor Brewer’s boondoggle called the AZ Commerce Authority, and using innovative polices to fund job training and targeted incentives to attract more high-tech and high-wage jobs to Arizona."
- Improve our education system
- Excerpt: "Arizona’s education system is at the bottom of the pack, and instead of fixing it Governor Brewer and Republicans made the deepest cuts to education funding in the history of our state. It’s time to get serious about our children’s future."
- Fix our broken tax system
- Excerpt: "Arizona’s tax code is outdated and unfair. Governor Brewer and Republicans asked the voters to tax themselves while refusing to close loopholes that benefit special interests and the rich. We have to fix our broken tax system so it is fair for everyone – families, hard working citizens, and businesses alike."
- Fight back against the extremism
- Excerpt: "Enough is enough. No more attacks on women’s right to privacy and healthcare. No more conspiracy theories. It’s time to take Arizona back from the ideologues and right-wing extremists."
- Pay off our debt.
- Excerpt: "Arizona is drowning in debt. Governor Brewer has only made it worse by selling off the State Capitol and using gimmicks to try and balance the budget. It’s time to stop the madness."

The Goldwater Institute releases its "Legislative Report Card" annually for all Arizona legislators. This report card tracks how legislators voted on key votes and assigns them a letter grade based on how closely their votes agree with the Institute's positions. The primary values emphasized in the ratings are whether votes expand or restrict liberty.
Campbell received a score of 42 out of 100 in the 2012 report card for a grade of D- according to the Goldwater Institute’s grading scale. This score was 9 higher than his score on the 2011 report card. Campbell’s 42 in 2012 was tied for the 43rd highest grade among all 60 Arizona State Representatives.
