Tom Campbell on Foreign Policy
Former Republican Representative (CA-15, 1995-2000)
CAMPBELL: Let me start with the fundamental commitment to the US relationship with the state of Israel. I've always supported a strong military relationship. And I have never flinched from that strong support.
FIORINA: In 1997 and in 1999, Tom, you offered amendments while you were a Congressman that cut aid to Israel in 1999 you voted to cut aid to Israel. In 1990 you were one of only 34 congressman who voted against Jerusalem being the undivided capital of Israel. And do you still think President Clinton is too pro-Israel as you once said?
CAMPBELL: George Shultz, the Secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan recently said that I was an "unwavering friend of Israel", particularly in the face of this threat from Iran.
FIORINA: I think Tom Campbell's voting record is quite clear and I think he is trying to have it both ways.
OnTheIssues.org explanation: The US government has forbidden US citizens from traveling to Cuba since the 1960s. Try booking a trip from Mexico City to Havana on travelocity.com (or any travel website) and it says, "Due to a U.S. government travel restriction we are unable to book this reservation." You can, however, purchase that same ticket while in Mexico City, or anywhere else in the world. Sanford's bill attempts to undo this long-standing situation.
