EDUCATION: University of Nevada, University of Oklahoma
- "The longstanding friendship between the United States and Israel extends far beyond diplomatic and economic ties and is rooted in our shared belief in a free, open an democratic society. A strong US-Israel relationship is critical to a stable Middle East and to democracy in the world"
- "Congress needs to ensure that we provide women of all economic backgrounds the ability to receive affordable medical treatment and birth control. The decision to end a pregnancy needs to be made between a woman and her doctor, and the right to an abortion needs to be protected."
In His Own Words
"Our country is the strongest when faith does not dictate policy, and policy does not dictate faith. I strongly believe that religion and state should be separated, and I will do everything in my power to ensure that all people are able to worship freely and that religious beliefs do not dictate the laws of all Americans."
Rep. Kihuen is the first Latino to represent the State of Nevada in the United States House of Representatives.
