I honestly like Mike Harrison and enjoy each opportunity we have to talk, but I need to know if his values are any different than those of his boss, Congressman Duncan Hunter. Mike has been a loyal staffer and in each of our discussions has always been faithful and supportive of him.
On Monday the Congressman voted “Yea” on H. Res 450, a resolution to consider the reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank. Congressman Hunter was one of only two California Republicans to support more crony capitalism, a continuation of the Export-Import Bank and the transfer of more dollars from the tables of San Diego families to American corporations.
LaMalfa, McClintock, Cook, Denham, McCarthy, Nunes, Royce, Rohrabacher and Issa voted “Nay”.
I understand that as a possible state legislator the Export-Import Bank is not within Harrison’s purview, but the Cal Chamber and it’s representation of California’s thirty largest corporations is. I need to know how he will respond to their visits to his office. Unlike his opponent Randy Voepel, Mike doesn’t have a voting record we can assess. I need to know his values; his comment at this time on the Congressman’s vote would be greatly appreciated.
While we are on the topic I would also like to hear how candidates Voepel, Jerry Kern and Phil Graham would respond to Cal Chamber’s support for the reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank.
