Skinner's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- "The first question about any policy in West Virginia should be how it supports the goal of sustainability. For too long, we looked to short term gains, while ignoring the consequences. The new economy must be based on an ability for West Virginia to support itself and keep its citizens healthy, educated and employed. Whether it is agriculture, energy, tourism or arts, we must build the framework for any policy with sustainability as the goal."
- "Innovation must be embraced, and West Virginia must search for new ideas and fresh perspectives from sources around the world. We encourage the creativity and ambition of our community to move West Virginia forward."
- "My roots are firmly planted in West Virginia, and its' families will always be the first priority. We must recognize the heritage of place and preserve the assets that bind us to the past, for these ties are a springboard to success for future generations and new opportunites (sic)."
- "I have always stood up for the underdog and against a system that is not fair to everyone. I will always stand for those whose voices are hardest to hear. I pledge to continue to fight for equality and fairness for all of West Virginia's citizens."
