Clifthorne's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Revenue; A Comprehensive Approach
- Excerpt: "We must address the structural challenges in our revenue process so that we can start to increase revenue, and increase the stability of our system so that our school districts and state agencies can budget more effectively for the long term."
- Strong Schools
- Excerpt: "We have a duty in this state to do what's best for our kids: we need to fully fund our educational system. If we want to compete in a global economy, we can only do so by investing in our children from the day they're born, until the time they start life as productive drivers of our economy."
- Highlighting Higher Education
- Excerpt: "I would like to share with you a startling fact: in the last three years, Washington's investment in higher education has been reduced by half. The vast majority of that reduction has been passed on to students in the form of higher tuition and fees."
- Putting People to Work
- Excerpt: "The best social program a person can ask for is a job. While the economy is slowly coming out of the worst recession in recent memory, unemployment among construction trades in Washington remains at 30 percent, and even higher in some parts of the state."
- A Competitive Economy
- Excerpt: "Washington State has a long and proud history of innovation. We have invested in policies that build specialized, regional economies across the State, and our approach to economic growth has and will continue to be forward thinking."
- Clean Technology and Smart Transportation
- Excerpt: "We cannot afford to wait for the industries of the future to solve our problems. We must invest today in smart transportation policy, clean technology, and energy efficiency. We can and should create a world where we’ve learned to live in balance with our resources while continuing to grow economically."
- Stop the War on Women & Children
- Excerpt: "For decades America has been on an upward track toward improved access for women to a broad range of reproductive choices, including effective family planning, access to infertility treatments, healthy childbearing, abortion and adoption. In recent years however, women and children alike have come under attack on two distinct fronts."
- Keeping Washington Healthy
- Excerpt: "Washington has been blessed to have the leadership of decision makers who understand the importance of delivering high quality health care at an affordable price, with the individual at the center of the effort. We need to have universal coverage in our country, because health care ought to be a right, not a privilege for the wealthy or well connected."
- Equality for Everyone
- Excerpt: "I one hundred percent support equal rights for the LGBTQ community, and always have."
- Humane Legislation
- Excerpt: "I believe it is equally critical to foster a society where cruelty and inhumane treatment of farm and domestic animals is simply not tolerated."
