Busby Denounces Dubia Deal - Hits Republicans on Port Security

Francine Busby, the only Democrat running against 15 Republicans in Duke Cunningham's old district the CA-50, was given the opportunity to deliver the Democratic Response to President Bush's "weakly" radio address.

Busby took the President to task for the ill conceived sale of United States port facilities to a company owned by the United Arab Emirates, a country that supports terrorists.
