No “sexual orientation” in Employment Non-Discrimination Act
Q: I own a motion picture film lab that came under fire by the Arlington Human Rights Commission because I refused to duplicate objectionable pro-homosexual material. Would you protect business owners like me from being forced to violate our moral
conscience by vetoing the so-called “Employment Non-Discrimination Act” that would add the phrase “sexual orientation” into federal law?

No minimum wage; let free market set wages
Q: Under a Cox administration, will you support the current federal minimum wage?
A: I do not support the minimum wage or have the government setting wages or prices.
This always has backfired in American history. The free market is the best place to set wages.
