On January 9 in Des Moines, Iowa, Bernie Sanders spoke out against the $1 trillion plan to “modernize” U.S. nuclear weapons.  Sanders made his statement in response to a question by Rebecca Aguilar at the Latino Roundtable. As far as I know, this was the first time any presidential candidate has made a definitive statement opposing modernization. So congratulations to Bernie and Rebecca.

For reports on other times candidates have been asked about nuclear weapons, go to AFSC’s Governing Under the Influence website here.

Don’t forget there’s just a few weeks left till the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary.  If you are inspired to go out to ask candidates your own question about nuclear weapons, see AFSC’s calendar here.
