Scott is a small business owner and licensed realtor.

Scott's website highlights the following campaign themes:
Size and Scope of Government/Budget
- Excerpt:"I choose to protect and put my faith in the individual, not the government."
- Excerpt:"I believe we must also remove barriers to job growth. Minnesota is the home to many Fortune 500 companies. However, as these companies are growing, they are choosing to do so out of the state of Minnesota."
- Excerpt:"I believe in putting our children's education first. I support fairness in education funding. The funding discrepancy between Minneapolis/St. Paul schools and suburban and outstate schools is wide."
- Excerpt:"I support the effort to mobilize our state attorney general to join many other state's attorneys general in filing a lawsuit against the new federal health care law. The federal law impedes upon our state's right to manage our own system. The federal program is unaffordable and will lead to rationing."
- Excerpt:"I am 100% pro-life. I also believe marriage should be defined as between one man and one woman."
