Palmer's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt:"Wyoming state government works, and we should be proud of this. But we can do better. Recent legislation has improved meeting law and public disclosure for many segments of the government, except the Legislature. It is time that the same good rules exist for all governmental entities. Government is for the people and the common good, not special interest groups."
- Excerpt:"What the legislature must do is give districts and our teachers a clear understanding of what the State expects of our educational institutions. Then the districts must be given the latitude to educate our children to those standards using the curriculum, techniques and tactics that make the most sense in our individual communities."
- Excerpt:"While tending to the Big Three, we need to diversify our economy by focusing on small business development. Assuring a climate that is conducive to start-ups and established businesses while maintaining important “quality of life” factors will lead to a more diversified economy and positive economic future."
- Excerpt:"We must move forward with systemic improvements such as developing a health insurance exchange and funding preventative care programs. Affordable healthcare that promotes prevention must be available to all of our citizens."
