Jeff Flake-Foe Rich Carmona on Taxes, the Deficit, and Immigration
Democrat for U.S. Senate Rich Carmona speaking to supporters on Saturday
Former U.S. Surgeon General Rich Carmona, the Democrat currently locked in a neck-and-neck race with Republican Congressman Jeff Flake for Jon Kyl's U.S. Senate Seat, paid a visit Saturday to a Tempe field office for a Q and A with supporters, and Phoenix videographer Dennis Gilman was there to document the event.
Carmona answered questions on the Bush tax cuts (he's for temporarily repealing those for the wealthy), immigration (he's for the DREAM Act and a pathway to citizenship), and the deficit, where his answer dealt mostly in generalities about getting rid of waste and cutting it without hurting the middle class and the poor.
I arrived late, so I'm glad Gilman was able to catch this footage. However, for some odd reason, some knucklehead claiming to be from the county Democratic Party gave him grief because he didn't have his press badge on him.
