Paul Hannosh was a 2014 Republican candidate who sought election to the U.S. House to represent the 8th Congressional District of California.[1]

Campaign themes


Hannosh's campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • Protecting the unborn: "I am 100% pro life. I believe abortion is taking the life of an innocent human being. I believe life begins at conception and it is the duty of our government to protect this life as mentioned in our Declaration of Independence."
  • Immigration: "I do not support amnesty, I support legal immigration and recognize that the country has been enriched by those who seek the freedom to make a life for themselves here and escape religious oppression as my father did in the 1950's. However, millions of illegal immigrants are crossing our border without our knowledge and causing a clear threat to our national security."
  • Budget: "According to the Congressional Budget Office, this will be the third consecutive year in which the federal government is running a deficit near or greater than $1 trillion. The solution to the government's fiscal crisis must begin by cutting spending in all areas, particularly in those that can be better run at the state or local level."
  • Taxes: "There is absolutely no question that the United States income tax needs to be reformed. The burdensome tax regulations imposed by the United States Tax Code are too complicated for most Americans. Many Americans have to hire someone else to prepare their taxes. The President using the complex IRS code to intimidate patriotic groups indicates a broken system."
  • Foreign Policy: "One of the most significant issues we deal with in the United States Congress is foreign policy. And in my opinion, one of the most important votes a Congressman could take is on the declaration of war to send our men and women of the Armed Forces into battle. If the military action is justified and there is no other recourse, I will cast my vote with a heavy heart."
