SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A San Diego-area congressman is getting an endorsement just one week before election day.

But it's unclear if this endorsement will be helpful.

Donald Trump is making it officials. He's endorsing Congressman Darrell Issa for reelection.

Issa has been in Congress for 15 years. He is running against Democrat Colonel Doug Applegate in the race to represent the 49th Congressional District.

Trump made the announcement on Twitter saying, "Darrell Issa is a very good man. Help him win his Congressional Seat in California."

Issa took a chance early on by tying his campaign to Trump's run for the White House and his opponent has used that in his battle against Issa.

Now, Trump is paying Issa back and that is already being used against him too.

Applegate's campaign manager released this written statement:

"Darrell Issa once again shows why he's unfit to represent this district in Congress. I guess Issa couldn't help himself in showing the voters of this district that he really is a mini-Trump who will always put party before country..."

KUSI reached out to Darrell Issa's office for comment, but so far we have not heard back.
