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

Answer from Brian Holtz:

As the state with the largest Congressional delegation, California is in no danger of being denied its share of federal resources. If elected, I would loudly refuse to fight for special benefits for my district (or any constituency therein) at the expense of other taxpayers.

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

Answer from Brian Holtz:

America should promote political and economic freedom worldwide, protect the global environment, and wage war on tyrants when the benefits to human freedom sufficiently outweigh the costs in human suffering.

3. What are your priorities for the federal budget?

Answer from Brian Holtz:

Privatize middle-class entitlements like Social Security and Medicare. End corporate welfare: subsidies, tax loopholes, loan guarantees, liability limits, farm price supports, and import restrictions. Enact a line-item veto, and de-federalize all spending not authorized by the enumeration of Congressional powers in Article I Section 8.

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

The order of the candidates is random and changes daily.
