"Of course, heads need to roll and those people need to be prosecuted." --Wilcox on the VA scandal

"Gridlock is caused by both parties, and that's why we're here today. This is why we need a new voice in Washington. We need a rise in the Independents. Independents comprise 40 percent of this district and yet we're precluded from voting, we're left out of the primaries. We're discouraged from voting in the general elections." --Penalosa

"I'd like to paraphrase a quote from Harry Potter: It takes courage to stand up to your enemies, but it takes even more courage to stand up to your friends. That's what I'm asking you to do today. I didn't ask for my supporters to come here today. I came alone with my daughter and my son-in-law. I'm asking for your courage because our campaign is about courage. I'd like you to at least consider Randy Camacho for Congress." --Camacho

But one thing it's not going to take is another typical Latino politician. And I'm not a typical Latino politician. --Maupin, whose mother is a Latina
