Judy asked Jeb Bush if he supports spending $1 trillion on a new generation of nuclear weapons. Bush said he supports the nuclear "triad" and pivoted to a denunciation of the Obama administration's agreement with Iran. Judy suggests the US needs to get back on track toward multi-lateral nuclear abolition if we hope to stop additional countries from going nuclear.

John inquired about the $1 trillion nuclear weapons modernization program and mentioned Robert Civiak’s view that it is a complete waste and that our present deterrent is more than enough for now and the foreseeable future. Kasich’s reply was unhesitating, and tough. “I disagree."

Gov. Martin O'Malley spoke to a group of 50 at a law firm in downtown Manchester. The event was casual. His speech was brief, then answered a question saying he would end the federal immigrant detention quota and stop locking up immigrants for the benefit of private corporations.

Wisconsin Gov Scott Walker made a campaign appearance at One Mile West in Sunapee, N.H., on August 20, 2015 and answered John's question about the DOE's inspector general citing Lockheed-Martin for illegally used taxpayer money to lobby for more nuclear weapons contracts. Walker called for increasing military spending, but said he'd set up a commission to study waste, fraud, and corruption.

Jeb Bush agreed that there is a lot of waste in defense procurement and cited the F-35 as an example (not that he opposes it as a weapons system). He also stated that procurement reform is a must, and added that he’d look into requiring performance bonds from defense contractors.

Olivia approached Gov. Christie at WMUR after the taping of his "Conversation with the Candidate" and asked him about closing the "revolving door." Christie said "you have to," in order to keep former government officials from exploiting their undue advantage for personal gain. But he also said you don't want to bar people with expertise from government service or prevent them from becoming lobbyists forever. He proposes a 4-year gap.

Scott Walker at Theo's Pizza
I asked Scott Walker about what we can do to ensure our foreign policy reflects the interests of people and not corporations. He deflected the question and spoke about keeping our troops safe. I brought the conversation to restaurant patrons and news reporters.
