Louisiana: Miss Louisiana had a very tough question, regarding Obama releasing five Taliban terrorists from Guantanamo, in exchange for an American soldier who was held hostage in Afghanistan. She responded by saying that she is “happy to get the guy back..” but that she doesn’t think negotiating with terrorists are okay.

Nevada: Miss Nevada was asked about an increase in sexual assaults on universities campuses, and why she thinks the issue continues to go unaddressed. She answered by saying that universities are most likely ashamed of the reputation that would come out of addressing sexual assualt. She said that raising awareness can prevent it as well as self defense.


Florida: Miss Florida was asked what sets her apart from the other contestants. She answered that she is different because her father passed away, and that she would work to raise awareness for the condition that he suffered from.
