Some big issues, including immigration, trade and gun control are surging through the 2016 presidential race, but they’re also being closely watched as candidates debate the issues.
That includes the potential fallout from the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage.
The justices also will weigh in on the health care law, with some conservatives worried about the impact it could have on seniors.
For the most part, however, the campaign season is more about policy than politics.
Here are some key issues that are coming up in 2016: *The top two candidates for president have a strong track record on immigration, but immigration reform is another topic where the candidates have a difficult time getting their feet wet.
Republicans have proposed several bills, including a comprehensive version of a bill introduced in January by Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida.
It would increase border security and expedite the deportation of people who overstay their visas.
The White House has yet to weigh in.
*The House minority leader, Nancy Pelosi, has a tough fight ahead of her.
Democrats have introduced legislation that would limit the power of the minority leader.
Pelosi has said that if she can’t get a bill passed, she’ll run as an independent candidate in 2018.
*On gun control, the Democratic candidate for the presidency is the one who most recently backed a measure that would allow concealed weapons in many public places.
She said that the measure is designed to reduce gun violence, but it has drawn the ire of some in the gun control community.
*While Republicans are running a candidate for vice president, a candidate who’s backed a pro-gun candidate in the past is a big threat to the GOP.
In the past, that candidate has been Sarah Palin.
And while she’s not running for president, her husband, former Vice President Dick Cheney, is the current vice president of the United States.
*In some ways, the 2016 campaign is an extension of the one we experienced in 2000, when George W. Bush, in his final year in office, became the first president to run for re-election.
Bush did so as a candidate, and he won the presidency by a wide margin.
That year, though, many Americans were concerned about Bush’s record.
A major issue in that year’s election was the Supreme Supreme Court decision that overturned the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, which banned same-religion marriages and gave federal benefits to gay couples.
The court did not address the question of whether same-gender marriages should be recognized in the law, but many Republicans said the ruling would have a devastating impact on their party.
*With the election of President Obama in 2012, some Republicans were worried about whether the party could recapture the White House.
The issue was a huge one in the 2012 campaign, with Mitt Romney leading the Republican field by more than 20 points.
Many of the candidates who ran for president this year are hoping to recapture that magic number.
*For many people, the political conversation is all about economic issues, but there are other issues as well, like foreign policy.
And with so many of the races being contested, it’s impossible to say whether a candidate’s position on a given issue will determine whether she or he gets to be president.
For example, some conservatives argue that it’s more important to control immigration and reduce trade deficits than it is to reduce inequality.
On the other hand, many liberals say that it should be easier for families to stay together than it should to keep the government out of their lives.
What are the top three issues for voters in the 2016 election?
*Taxes: Republicans and Democrats agree on a range of taxes, including the federal corporate tax rate, a proposal that would slash taxes on large corporations.
On foreign policy, Democrats are calling for increased U.S. military presence in the Middle East.
On health care, the parties are split on whether to expand Medicaid and expand Medicare.
*Gun control: In a race between a Democratic candidate and a Republican, a key issue in this race is gun control.
The two candidates agree on some important issues, like stricter background checks and tighter restrictions on gun sales.
But there are also other issues on which the candidates differ.
For instance, Hillary Clinton is an advocate of stricter gun laws, while Donald Trump is an opponent of more gun control measures.
*Health care: The Republican candidate for president is pushing for expanded access to health care through a single-payer health care system.
This idea is opposed by some Democrats, who say the federal government should take a bigger role in health care.
On immigration, Republicans are calling on President Obama to use executive powers to deport millions of people living in the U.N. building, while Democrats are arguing that the president should do more to protect the U
