Ammar Campa-Najjar (D), one of the few 2018 California Democratic congressional challengers who failed to win, announced that he will run again in the next cycle. Back in November, he lost 54-46% to indicted Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Alpine).
It’s possible that Mr. Campa-Najjar won’t have to wait until 2020. The chances of this seat coming open early and in special election are high. Rep. Hunter is scheduled for trial under a campaign finance indictment and will likely resign or be expelled if found guilty. Therefore, we can expect much early political action coming from this San Diego County anchored seat.
