Chamberlain's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Economy - Jobs
- Excerpt: "Most people understand that the government taking money away from hardworking Minnesotans means less money in their pockets to spend on other things. When the government takes money from hardworking taxpayers, this money cannot then be used for businesses to expand and hire more people."
State Government – Regulation, Spending, Taxes
- Excerpt: "There is a place for government in our lives but over the years it has become a burden on hardworking taxpayers."
- Excerpt: "We all want the best teachers and education system for our kids. But the facts below show that money isn't the only solution."
Amendment, Voter ID
- Excerpt: "This is a common sense solution to help ensure the integrity of our election system. Minnesotans will have the opportunity to debate the issue and vote on it on November 6, 2012."
Amendment, Definition Of Marriage
- Excerpt: "This does change current law (see MN Statute 517.01 & 517.03). It is about who will decide this important cultural issue, seven judges or the citizens. People will be given the opportunity to debate the issue in the “public square” and the vote on whether the definition of marriage should remain the same."

Taxpayers League of Minnesota
The Taxpayers League of Minnesota, a Minnesota-based taxpayer advocacy organization, releases a legislative scorecard for the Minnesota House of Representatives and Minnesota State Senate once a year. The scorecard gives each legislator a score based on how they voted in the prior legislative term on tax issues and “their efforts to balance the state budget without a tax increase.” The organization also compiles a legislator’s individual "Lifetime Score."
Chamberlain and his wife, Anette, have two children.
