The Philippines is a country of more than 100 million people. Its history and its proximity to China have made it an important U.S. ally, but it's had its share of challenges.
Congressional District 9 Republican candidates discuss issues
Republican candidates in Arizona's new Congressional District 9 discussed a number of important issues at a KJZZ-hosted forum Monday night, including illegal immigration, the economy and jobs and health care.
Candidates Travis Grantham, Vernon Parker, Martin Sepulveda and Jeff Thompson participated; candidates Lisa Borowsky, Wendy Rogers and Leah Campos Schandlbauer were invited, but could not attend.
An identical forum will be held for the Democratic candidates on July 25 at the Arizona Historical Society Museum. (Hear it now.)
