Liebling's website highlights the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt:"We can create better economic opportunity by investing in worker training and keeping higher education affordable so that our workforce remains highly skilled and competitive."
Taxes and Economy
- Excerpt:"We need tax policies that are fair and transparent. We must bring tax fairness and fiscal responsibility back to Minnesota."
- Excerpt:"Our health care system—if it is a system at all—is enormously complex, so we must address the problems on many fronts."
- Excerpt:"Our state must take much bolder steps to protect this precious resource. We must insure that our schools and teachers get the resources they need to give all Minnesota students equal opportunities to succeed."
- Excerpt:"Public money should go to private enterprise only where the investment is truly for public, not private, benefit. In my view, the Vikings stadium proposals are great for the team owners but unfair to the taxpayer."
