According to McClintock's official campaign Web site, he took these positions during the 2008 campaign:
McClintock supports implementing a federal spending limit, and reducing wasteful and mismanaged spending from the government. 
To lower the amount of illegal immigration, McClintock supports completing the southern border fence and enforcing current immigration laws more strictly, rather than creating new ones. 
McClintock believes that allowing forest and land management to be done by local government will help lower the amount of wildfires in California. 
McClintock supports fully funding the military as well as returning to Reagan's "peace through strength" idea. 
For a better education system, McClintock favors allowing local government and communities to make education decisions rather than using a "one size fits all" model. 
McClintock supports making the 2003 Bush tax cuts permanent, and thus allow businesses the opportunity to grow. 
McClintock was born July 10, 1956, in Bronxville, N.Y. He holds a B.A. from the University of California-Los Angeles, and he has worked as a journalist and public policy analyst. McClintock was a member of the California state assembly from 1982 to 1992, and 1996 to 2000. He was a member of the California State Senate from 2000 to 2008. McClintock ran unsuccessfully for the United States House of Representatives in 1992; he ran unsuccessfully Governor of California in 2003.
He won the Republican nomination in the June 2008 primaries and went on to defeat Charlie Brown (D) to replace retiring incumbent Rep. John Doolittle R-Calif.) in the November, 2008 general election.
