今日6月8日はカリフォルニア州予備選投票日。午前７時から午後８時まで行われています。 "California Primary Election": It's being held today, June 8, 2010, between 7 am and 8 pm.
共和党有力候補は、メグ・ウィットマン氏（元イーベイ/eBay社長）とスティーブ・ポイズナー氏（ビジネスマン）です。 数日前の世論調査では、ウイットマン氏50％、ポイズナーシ25％で、ウイットマン氏優勢でした。 The leading Republican candidates are Meg Whitman (ex-eBay CEO) and Steve Poizner (Businessman). According to the poll conducted a few days ago, Whitman was leading Poizner at 50% to 25%.
民主党有力候補は、ジェリー・ブラウン氏（1975年ー1983年元加州州知事）です。単独首位をキープしているので、TV広告見かけません。 The leading Democratic candidate is Jerry Brown (the ex-CA Governor, 1975 to 1983). He has a strong lead, so we don't see any TV ads for him.
Whitman has emphasized three major areas in her campaign: job creation, reduced state government spending, and reform of the state's K-12 educational system. She has argued that it is best to start only a few things and finish them, instead of starting a lot of things and finishing few of them.
Whitman has pledged not to raise taxes and signed the Americans for Tax Reform's "No New Taxes Pledge" on the day she announced her candidacy for governor. She also proposes lowering business taxes and abolishing the state capital gains tax in order to make California a more business-friendly environment, stating that California is losing jobs not to other countries but to neighboring states with lower tax rates, such as Nevada, Arizona and Oregon.
Poizner is the only candidate running to cut taxes and is a strong supporter of Prop. 13. Poizner strongly supports Prop. 13 and will defend Prop. 13 as Governor. Poizner states he is the only candidate running on a platform to cut taxes for every individual and business in the state.
Poizner has a long history of taking a tough stance on illegal immigration. Since the start of his campaign Steve Poizner has taken a “hard line” on illegal immigration, as documented by the San Francisco Chronicle in February 2009. While Poizner recognizes the strong benefits of legal immigration to California and all of its contributions to the state’s rich and vibrant culture, the uncontrolled flow of illegal immigration must end. Poizner is the only candidate offering a bold approach to the issue of ending illegal immigration.
