Northern Nevadans Listen to Duncan Hunter

Posted by sierrascrapper on December 31, 2007

After making a round of campaign stops in Northern Nevada after the Christmas holiday, Congressman Duncan Hunter found that Nevadans support his run for President.  Congressman Duncan Hunter attended a townhall meeting in Reno on December 27, 2007 where there were almost 50 in attendance.  All 3 of the local affiliate stations turned out to cover the meeting and interview Congressman Hunter.  There were two other local stations and the local newspaper there to cover the event.   Hunter spoke on the issues of unfair trade practices with China, the threat of terrorism in our country through our open borders and our rising problem with illegal immigration.  General Chuck Yeager also spoke at the townhall meeting and told his story about how he broke the sound barrier and how the creation of jets came about. 

The next evening, Congressman Hunter and General Yeager spoke to a standing room only crowd in Carson City, NV.  There were over 100 people in attendance.  Nevada’s First Lady Dawn Gibbons was there to meet him when he walked in the door and led a cheering section as he entered into the townhall meeting.  The crowd in Carson City were very receptive to his message and liked each of the points that Hunter discussed.  He spoke more in depth on the issues of education, the War on Terror, Iran, unfair trade with China and our economy.  General Yeager also told his story of his career in the Air Force and told them why he supported Duncan Hunter.  The people who showed up at this townhall meeting were so thrilled to support Duncan Hunter and they were anxious to spread the word about him to their friends.  They all left with at least one of the new CDs that the campaign has just released.  This CD is an excellent tool to spread the message about Duncan Hunter and it’s easy for folks to listen to it in their car on the way to work or wherever they are traveling.

During this trip Congressman Hunter and General Yeager toured the Nevada State Museum in Carson City and were able to see the Carson City Mint and see how the machine operated.   Congressman Hunter also visited a locally owned and operated outdoor outfitter called Mark Fore and Strike.  This business has been owned by 4 generations of the same family.  Congressman Hunter enjoyed meeting with the Stodtmeisters (owners) and appreciated their knowledgeable staff who helped him pick out a gift for the Yeagers. 

Congressman Hunter always has a straight-forward answer for any question that is put out.  At the Reno meeting, a local Hispanic activist named Gilbert Cortez who has led protests against ICE raids in our area asked Congressman Hunter how he is going to deal with the problem with illegal aliens in our nation.  Congressman Hunter told him straight up that they would have to go home and come back the right way and stand in line.  Many of the attendees thought that Mr. Cortez would start a major commotion, but Hunter was so clear and steadfast on his answer that Mr. Cortez didn’t have any further comment and it appeared that he actually agreed with Hunter on this issue.  Another voter in Carson City had a question for Congressman Hunter regarding the issue of abortion.  He wanted to know exactly how Congressman Hunter felt about abortion when it came to cases like rape or serious retardation.  Congressman Hunter stood true to his pro-life beliefs and told him that every fetus inside of a woman is considered a child of God and that they all deserve to have the same rights as humans.  The gentleman had no further response as he agreed with what Hunter had to say.  It was amazing to see Congressman Hunter stand up for his beliefs and not waiver.  It’s doubtful that other candidates would stand so strongly on this issue if confronted with it face to face.
