Governor Pete Wilson "Articulate, intelligent, and energetic, Kevin Kiley has the principles and passion that we need in our next generation of leaders.

He will challenge the misguided policies in Sacramento that have driven jobs out of our State and sent property theft and violent crime rates soaring in recent years."
