Ken Calvert and Will Rollins on inflation, immigration, abortion

Rep. Ken Calvert of Corona, the longest-serving Republican member of California’s congressional delegation, is being challenged by Democrat Will Rollins, a former federal prosecutor who aided in the prosecution of Jan. 6 insurrectionists at the U.S. Capitol.

First elected in 1992, Calvert is now running in less-favorable circumstances after the once-every-decade redrawing of congressional maps made his once solidly GOP district equally divided among Republican and Democratic voters in Riverside County.

The 41st district now includes Palm Springs and surrounding communities with many LGBTQ voters. Rollins, who is gay and sometimes campaigns with his longtime partner, has criticized Calvert over his record on LGBTQ issues.

The race is one of 10 key California contests in the Nov. 8 midterm election that could determine the balance of power in the House of Representatives.

The following is drawn from a questionnaire The Times sent to candidates in competitive California congressional races; responses have been edited for clarity and length. Information has also been included from past comments and past House votes:
