Steven Sauerberg on Civil Rights

Republican Challenger


All legal immigrants must learn to read & write English

All legal immigrants must learn to read and write English. We are a melting pot of many cultures bound together by a common language, and success in our schools and our economy depends on being able to communicate by using the same language. Those who immigrate to the United States should understand the importance of our history and civics and respect the values of our democratic society.

Hired Log Cabin Republicans as press secretary

Sauerberg stunned social conservatives last week when he announced the addition of a homosexual rights activist as his campaign's new press secretary. Christopher Barron was point man for the Log Cabin Republicans in their 2004 campaign against the effor to add a federal marriage amendment to the Constitution.

"It is inconceivable that Sauerberg would so needlessly alienate the pro-family conservative base by hiring a veteran homosexual activist," said the founder of Republicans For Family Values.
