Winograd said she told Hahn she wanted someone who would "challenge pre-emptive wars, regardless of whether the wars were waged by Republicans or Democrats." She also wanted a candidate to "advocate for a just and lasting peace in the Middle East, someone who would not be afraid to criticize Israel, to fight for equal rights for both Palestinians and Jews."
Hahn's response: "I want to make it clear. I am a friend to Israel."
Winograd has not yet heard from Debra Bowen. But if she does, here is her list of questions for her:
"Will you vote against further military appropriations for expanded wars in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Yemen?"
"Will you go to the wall to defend Social Security and Medicare, our greatest safety nets?"
"Will you visit Bradley Manning in solitary confinement?"
"Will you walk the streets of Wilmington with me, breathe the oil fumes, and work to crack down on polluters?"
"Will you support the right of states to pursue single-payer health care?"Winograd got 41% of the vote in a primary last June. She has a strong following in the district, which runs from Venice to San Pedro.
