Profesión:Representante de EE. UU.
Cámara de Representantes de EE. UU., Cámara de EE. UU. — Cargo elegido (2008–actualment)


Duncan D. Hunter currently represents California’s 50th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives, consisting mainly of East San Diego County.  With the latest redrawing of state-wide Congressional Districts, Duncan is now a candidate for the 50thCongressional District, which holds parts of East County, North County and the city of Temecula in Riverside County.

Duncan is a native of San Diego, graduating from Granite Hills High School in El Cajon before going on to San Diego State University, where he earned a degree in Business Administration.  Soon after graduation, Duncan began working full time as a Business Analyst, utilizing his degree and his experience creating websites and programming databases, while a student at San Diego State University.

For Duncan, like millions of other Americans, everything changed when the nation was attacked on September 11, 2001.  In the weeks that followed, Duncan quit his job and joined the Marine Corps.  Between 2002 and 2006, he served two combat tours in Iraq, before making the decision to run for Congress, where he saw an opportunity to continue serving the country.

Only a few weeks after declaring his candidacy, Duncan was recalled to active duty and deployed to Afghanistan.  Though unable to campaign in any way while serving on the front lines, he carried out his campaign through his wife and family as they reached out to the voters on his behalf, until his return in late November of 2007.

In November 2008, Duncan was elected to his first term in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Now joined in Congress by a growing list of distinguished military veterans, he remains the first and only Member of Congress to serve in a direct combat role in both Iraq and Afghanistan with the Marine Corps.

Duncan and his wife Margaret reside in Alpine, California.  They are proud parents of Duncan, Elizabeth and Sarah.

Duncan is a strong conservative whose priorities include a strong national defense; enhanced border security, fiscal accountability and transparency, and protecting taxpayer interests.  He currently serves as a member of the House Armed Services Committee, as well as a member of the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee and the House Education and the Workforce Committee.

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

  1. Individual liberty and personal responsibility are the cornerstones of our great nation.  The federal government’s role should be limited to protecting and defending our God given freedoms.
  2. Maintain a strong national security policy that funds the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps at appropriate levels and doesn’t cut defense spending during wartime for the first time in American history.  President Obama’s attempt to cut our military must be stopped. Islamofascism must be defeated.
  3. Border Security that includes a COMPLETELY secure southern and northern border. Border security is national security. NO AMNESTY for those here illegally.
  4. Real Economic Growth that comes from a vibrant private sector. Fight the Obama/Pelosi takeover of every industry in the United States.  Implement reform that will incentivize hard working Americans and entrepreneurs to create jobs. Bring manufacturing BACK from China and India to the United States.
  5. Tax cuts and fiscal responsibility are the keys to economic recovery and job growth.  The American people are overtaxed and the government spends too much.  We must have a balanced budget and every federal agency needs to be cut dramatically except for infrastructure and national defense.
  6. Energy independence.  The only way to free ourselves from terrorist despots who negotiate international policy using oil prices is to keep working on alternative energy while at the same time following an “all of the above” approach.  We must build more oil refineries, build nuclear facilities, and drill.
  7. Repeal the Obama/Pelosi healthcare takeover and replace it with common-sense, free-market reforms that will force health insurance companies to be accountable and transparent while, at the same time, increasing the quality and access of healthcare in America and reducing costs.
