One of Story's political positions was that housing was too unaffordable in New Mexico, stating "The housing needs of New Mexico citizens have not been satisfactorily addressed. Under the current administration, money and assets have been misappropriated and mismanaged, by the housing authority, which has not only wasted taxpayer dollars but has prevented assistance from getting to those most in need."
Park raised $121,894 for his campaign while Story raised $1,167 before losing in the general election.
The Right to Life Committee of New Mexico endorsed Story in his candidacy.
Story was the 2012 campaign adviser for Gary Smith, who challenged incumbent Janice Arnold-Jones for the Republican ticket in the 2012 U.S. House election to represent New Mexico's 1st congressional district. Smith was deemed ineligible to run after fellow Republican challenger Dan Lewis withdrew from the race, making Arnold-Jones the last GOP contender. Arnold-Jones lost the seat to Democrat Michelle Lujan Grisham in the popular election.
