Question of the Day
A top congressional Republican is criticizing a House GOP candidate from Ohio who wore a Nazi uniform during re-enactments of World War II battles.
The Atlantic magazine reported last week that Ohio Republican Rich Iott has participated in the re-enactments wearing a Waffen-SS uniform since 2003. Mr. Iott says he has been a historical re-enactor in other venues for many years.
House Republicans’ No. 2 leader, Eric Cantor of Virginia, says he repudiates Mr. Iott’s actions and would not support someone who would do that. Mr. Cantor’s remarks came after Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida cited Mr. Iott as an example of GOP candidates she said are extreme.
Giuliani campaigns for Whitman
LOS ANGELES | Former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani says Meg Whitman will cut spending and lower taxes as governor to get California’s economy moving.
Mrs. Whitman, the Republican nominee, is in a tight race with Democrat Jerry Brown, and Mr. Giuliani told cheering Whitman supporters Sunday in Los Angeles that electing Mr. Brown, who has a political career reaching back to the 1970s, would be a step backward.
Mr. Giuliani, who endorsed Mrs. Whitman last year, called her “the right person at the right time.”
Despite that endorsement, Mr. Giuliani wasn’t Mrs. Whitman’s favorite in the 2008 presidential race: She was an economic adviser to rival candidate Mitt Romney.
Candidate Miller acknowledges aid
ANCHORAGE | Alaska Senate candidate Joe Miller says his family benefited from Medicaid and a state-run health care program for low-income children and pregnant women.
Mr. Miller previously acknowledged receiving federal farm subsidies for land he owned in Kansas in the 1990s and low-income hunting and fishing licenses for him and his wife in Alaska.
As a conservative candidate, he’s criticized certain entitlement programs. U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who’s running as a write-in candidate against him, called Mr. Miller a hypocrite.
