Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Jeff Duncan has been vocal about his continued support of Yucca Mountain and has challenged the GOP presidential candidates to stand up for what is right rather than settling for what may be popular.

"U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan, a first-term South Carolina Republican whose congressional district is home to the Savannah River Site nuclear complex, with 70,000 tons of radioactive waste, warned the White House candidates that his state has the first-in-the-South GOP presidential primary."

Miami Herald (AP)_____________________________________________________________
"Freshman U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan of South Carolina released a statement Thursday that said he is disappointed "to hear that some of the GOP Presidential hopefuls share Senator Harry Reid's views on Yucca Mountain. ... I suspect many South Carolina voters, including myself, will expect to hear the presidential candidates' solution to this problem during their next visit to the Palmetto State.'"

Modesto Bee (Expanded McClatchy Article)_________________________________________
"Rep. Jeff Duncan, a first-term South Carolina Republican whose congressional district is home to the Savannah River Site nuclear complex - and its 4,000 metric tons of waste - warned the White House candidates that his state has the first-in-the-South GOP presidential primary.
"I suspect many South Carolina voters, including myself, will expect to hear the presidential candidates' solution to this problem during their next visit to the Palmetto State,' Duncan said."

Aiken Standard _______________________________________________________________

""Nevada has long benefited from the billions of taxpayer dollars that were sent to the state for developing a safe and permanent storage facility for our country's nuclear materials. If Nevada doesn't want Yucca Mountain, then the states should start reimbursing the American people for the costs. I'd remind all the Presidential candidates of the federal government's promise to construct a long term storage facility for the legacy weapons materials temporarily being stored in South Carolina.'- Jeff Duncan, S.C. Representative - R-3"
