Gaillot's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Seniors and Social Security
- Excerpt: "I am a friend to Florida’s seniors. I support ways to increase the solvency of Medicare, lower prescription drug prices, boost funding of medical research and increase the number of physicians practicing in Florida."
- Excerpt: "I will fight, fight to protect Medicare and I oppose the Ryan Budget that destroys Medicare and turns it into a voucher program"
- Women's Rights
- Excerpt: "I have a deep and profound understanding of gender equality. In addition to being the only pro-choice (see vote smart.org) courage test candidate on the ballot, I support efforts to reduce the need for abortion by reducing the number of unintended pregnancies."
- Excerpt: "Our economy has been faltering for too long and something has to be done to put Americans back to work. To this end I would support legislation to increase access to small business and agricultual loans. We spent our hard earned money on bailing out the banks and now it is time that we have access to that money. Small businesses and farms are the people who drive the American economy and we must do all we can to support them and get them back to work as soon as possible. Doing so will stimulate our economy and create more jobs that will stay here at home in America."
- Military and Veterans
- Excerpt: "I have a special place in my heart for veterans and the contributions they've made to our nation. I believe that our veterans deserve to be served as well as they have served us."
