U.S. House District CA-50

The political fate of Congressional District 50 moved seismically when Republican incumbent Duncan Hunter was indicted in August on federal charges on violating campaign finance laws, wire fraud and conspiracy. Despite the charges, to which he has pleaded not guilty, Hunter enjoys solid support in this conservative district that takes in Fallbrook, San Marcos, Escondido and El Cajon. The recent Los Angeles Times poll conducted by the University of California, Berkeley, shows him with a slight lead over his challenger, Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar.
