With several candidates already announcing their candidacies against indicted Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Alpine), one major political figure just declared that he is not going to run. Former state Senator Joel Anderson (R), who was ineligible to seek a third term under California’s term limits law, said yesterday that he will not run for Congress, and fully supports Rep. Hunter.
Mr. Hunter is scheduled for federal trial in September on campaign finance charges. If found guilty, a special election will be scheduled in this sprawling San Diego County District that also includes a sliver of Riverside County.
