ELECTION DAY/ Fazio (former Representative): Obama still provides hope

INT. Victor H. Fazio

11/6/2012

Former Representative from California VICTOR FAZIO comments on today’s election, the differences between the candidates on major issues, and why he is supporting Obama.

The candidates for the 2012 election present some novelties: an incumbent African American president, a Mormon opponent, and two Catholic candidates to the vice presidency. For the first time, no mainstream Protestant candidate is running. The competition is strong and the race seems to be a head-and-head one. This feature collects a series of articles on the main issues facing the candidates and the future president.
