The definition of acting “presidential” – for denizens of the White House and even their pets – has, at times, been stretched.

Assembly contenders part ways on pot, rail and Obamacare at Modesto debate

Differences between five candidates vying to succeed Kristin Olsen in the 12th Assembly District quickly came into focus Wednesday at their first public debate in Modesto. The three Republican candidates – Heath Flora, Cindy Marks and Ken Vogel – espoused conservative values such as protection of gun ownership and opposing recreational marijuana. On the Democratic side, Virginia Madueño took a centrist view, while Harinder Grewal leaned further left, advocating marijuana legalization, high-speed rail and universal health care.

Below are the responses from the candidates who responded to The Bee's request for the candidate questionnaires. The Bee made this request to all candidates.
