Kleiner's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Excerpt: "My personal faith is the most important value I live by. I attend Allen Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Staunton, and my strong faith informs all of my choices."
Excerpt: "It is unacceptable for the government to deprive our schools of necessary funding; we need to maintain support of elementary and secondary education. Both public and private colleges should be made a priority in order to ensure our future."
Excerpt: "We should encourage entrepreneurs to open new businesses in the 20th District, creating the jobs we need. We have successful retail and food preparation jobs, but we must expand into the growing technological fields. By expanding local business, and creating opportunities in new fields, we can move the 20th District toward a stronger economy."
- Disability Rights
Excerpt: "It is essential that we integrate those with disabilities into society, and fight to end stigma, while providing the services they need. The government cannot in good conscience deny necessary services to the disabled community, but must find a cost effective way to provide them."
