Additional comment from candidate:

I have the experience needed for Congress. I have the International Experience, I have the Union experience, I have the Business experience. I have the Marriage,Child care and Divorce experience. I have the immigration and fixed a part of our immigration problems. I know more about Immigration than most of our Congressmen and Senators in our government. I get along with Independents, Democrats and Republicans. I will be active and will place the Bills that are sent to me in front of my Constituents. I will ask my Constituents how I should vote on the Bills. The People of America should always come first before rebuilding other countries. I'm for Limited Government and government should not be running our everyday lives. We need to invite new businesses into America not run them away. We need to refurbish America's infrastructure and create a Highspeed rail system a cross America and beside it a high speed a Auto-bond east to west and north to south. I want .50 cents a Gallon for gas.
