1. What can be done to ensure that California gets its fair share of federal resources?

Answer from Michael Giorgino:

The 51st Congressional needs a mainstream Congressman who will work with his own party's leadership and across the isle to achieve progress. Our problems are bigger than Republican and Democrat, conservative or liberal. The war on terror, homeland security, and the economic challenges of the 21st Century require solid, rational leadership (not far-left ideological rhetoric).

2. What are your foreign policy priorities for the United States?

Answer from Michael Giorgino:

Win the war in Iraq. Relentlessly pursue international terrorists. Advance the cause of freedom throughout the world.

3. What are your priorities for the federal budget?

Answer from Michael Giorgino:

Lower taxes. Less regulation. Stimulate economic growth in our free market. Jobs for working families. A comprehensive energy policy. A balanced approach to development and environmental conservation.

Responses to questions asked of each candidate are reproduced as submitted to the League. 

The order of the candidates is random and changes daily.
