Duncan Hunter's Secret Weapon
Got this in an email from the Hunter campaign:
Duncan Hunter when speaking to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C., about his finish in the South Carolina poll said, "You know, I woke up to … one of the commentators saying that the only reason that Hunter beat all those guys in South Carolina is because his Marine son has been there for a week. Well, I looked down at that army of consultants, everybody who was vertical in South Carolina was hired by the other guys, and I said, 'You know, that is a good match-up: One Marine versus 550 consultants.' We did have the advantage!"
Hunter's service in the Vietnam War and the service of his son in Iraq give him a great insight into issues relating to the military. His years chairing the Armed Services Committee are an invaluable resource of experience in a time of war.
