After his Aug. 1 talk, I asked Sanders: "Lockheed has been recycling taxpayer dollars to lobby for more nuclear weapons contracts. What steps would you take to make sure the nation's security policy is not driven by Lockheed's profit motives?" His quick response: "strong lobbying legislation."

John Kasich at Rivier
Several bird dogs prompted John Kasich to discuss immigrant detention, money in politics, and the political influence of Pentagon contractors. He said undocumented immigrants are Americans and should not be held in detention for crossing the border; billionaires should not drive the political process; and on spending for vehicles to deploy a nuclear payload, he asked "How many nuclear weapons does it take to ruin your entire day and to destroy your whole country? Why do we need to do this?"
