Congressman Duncan Hunter is making another visit to northern Nevada over the Veteran’s Day weekend.  Duncan Hunter will arrive in Reno, NV after appearing as the Grand Marshall in the Veteran’s Day Parade in San Diego, CA.  Duncan Hunter will be in the Veterans Day Parade in downtown Reno, NV on Sunday November 11, 2007.  He is the ONLY candidate to appear in Nevada in honor of our nation’s veterans.

A townhall meeting has been scheduled for 3:30PM at the Best Western Airport Plaza 1971 Terminal Way in the 2nd floor ballroom.  This will give Nevadans an excellent opportunity to understand the vision Congressman Hunter has for our nation as President. 

That evening Congressman Hunter will embark on a trip to Elko, NV.  He will speak at a townhall meeting in Elko on Monday, November 12th at 8:30am and then visit the Neumont Mine-South Area Operation to meet with the workers at the mine.  He will then make several short stops at the local’s favorite restaurants in Carlin, Battle Mountain, Winnemucca and Lovelock to meet with rural Nevadans.

Hunter Calls on Romney to Oppose Bain Partnership

HUNTER CALLS ON ROMNEY TO OPPOSE BAIN PARTNERSHIP WITH CHINESE COMPANY

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 2, 2007

CONTACT: Gary Becks (619) 334-1655, dlhunter08@yahoo.com

San Diego, CA – – – Presidential candidate and current Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Committee, Congressman Duncan Hunter, today called on former Governor Mitt Romney to send a “clear statement” to the leadership of the company he founded, Bain Capital, to terminate a proposed business deal with a controversial Chinese corporation seeking to acquire U.S. defense contractor 3COM. Bain Capital is attempting to form a business arrangement with Huawei Corporation, a Chinese corporation founded by an officer of the Peoples Liberation Army of Communist China, which faces allegations of assisting Saddam Hussein in the targeting of U.S. aircraft and in helping the Taliban develop surveillance equipment.

“I am extremely concerned that Governor Romney’s company would tout a highly suspect Chinese corporation as a strategic partner,” stated Hunter. “Forming a business partnership with a corporation known to have direct ties with terrorists and dictators while, at the same time, openly seeking to acquire a major U.S. corporation that performs vital cyber security work for the Department of Defense, can only be characterized as irresponsible.”

A resolution has been introduced in Congress, H.Res. 730, which states; “The preponderance of publicly available evidence clearly suggests that as currently structured, the proposed transaction involving Huawei threatens the national security of the United States and should not be approved by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States .” A copy of this resolution is provided.

Hunter stated in his letter to Governor Romney, “…while it is true that you no longer control Bain Capital, the contributions you have received from its principals as its founding member indicate that your influence within the company remains strong.

“Further, while the Committee on Foreign Investment has yet to rule on the Huawei transaction, this corporation’s connection to Saddam Hussein, the Taliban and the Army of Communist China should clearly disqualify them from becoming, in the words of your former company, “a strategic partner” in acquiring a U.S. firm such as 3COM, which performs vital cyber-security work for the U.S. Department of Defense.

“This letter is a request that you immediately issue a statement of policy that this transaction should be terminated on the grounds of national security. Please let me know what you intend to do.”

A copy of Congressman Hunter’s letter, as well as two articles regarding Huawei acquisition efforts are provided. Media are encouraged to contact Gary Becks at (619) 334-1655 for additional information or to arrange an interview with Hunter.

Duncan Hunter is in this to WIN!!!

Posted by sierrascrapper on November 1, 2007

My fellow activists, voters, friends.

 There has been an aggregious act committed against Congresssman Duncan Hunter today.  A prank news announcement has been created at spoof.com about Duncan Hunter.  It states that he is dropping out of the race for President.  The fake news story is completely FALSE and I urge all readers to take action to make sure the word gets out that the story is a HOAX.

The proof that Duncan Hunter is in this election to win can be seen in the event that was announced on October 31,2007.  Duncan Hunter submitted his application and $1000 fee to get his name on the Primary ballot in New Hampshire.  The news of this event was reported by the AP and was posted on several websites.  One is the Boston.com website http://www.boston.com/news/nation/articles/2007/10/31/duncan_hunter_files_for_primary_ballot/“>

You can also find the AP story on Yahoo News.  http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071031/ap_po/on_the2008_trail_1

 Do not be fooled my friends, the reason these attacks are occurring is due to the fact that Duncan Hunter is gaining momentum and he is the only TRUE CONSERVATIVE in this race for the White House.  I find it quite disturbing that folks have to slink to such low depths in order to attempt to mislead the public and make them believe something that is not true.  The scary part is that a lot of people believe anything they read on the internet.  As Americans we need to make sure that we are doing our homework on the candidates and finding out the facts for ourselves.  We should read about each of the candidates views and find the candidate that most matches our standards and beliefs for our nation. 

In my case, Duncan Hunter is the ONLY choice for President.
