Gary DeLong is a 2012 Republican candidate seeking election to the U.S. House representing the 47th Congressional District of California.

Issues

Marriage equality

When asked to name an example of an idea where he disagreed with his party at a League of Women Voters forum, DeLong stated three: he is pro-choice, pro-environment, and pro-marriage equality. "I support gay marriage. They don't," he said.[1]

Campaign themes

2012

DeLong's campaign website lists the following issues:[2]

  • Budget
Excerpt: "It is time for Congress to follow the same spending rules that we do. You cannot spend more than you make. As your Representative I will work to pass a balanced budget and make my colleagues do the same."
  • Education
Excerpt: "America’s continued prosperity depends on our ability to give our children the tools they need to succeed. That said, not every child learns the same way. I believe states and local school districts are best equipped to respond to the uniqueness and diversity of every classroom."
  • Energy
Excerpt: "We need to focus on developing viable and sustainable energy sources within the United States. Congress can help by streamlining regulations and investing in America’s energy resources. Whether we are advancing renewable energy, building more refineries, or studying new fuel sources, it is time to keep that money, and those jobs, here in America."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "Americans need more affordable access to healthcare. However, it appears the recent changes will drive up the cost of insurance premiums to both business owners and citizens, while spending more than a trillion dollars of taxpayer money."
  • Immigration
Excerpt: "I believe the United States needs a clear and effective immigration policy that addresses four core areas: increasing border security, reforming legal immigration, delivering federal reimbursement to state and local government and creating a limited guest worker program."
