49th Congressional District

Posted: Updated:

?There are at least two San Diego County Congressional races that have the attention of both the national Republican and Democratic parties.

The first of those is the 49th Congressional District.

The district covers the northern coastal areas of San Diego County, including the cities of Oceanside, Vista, Carlsbad and Encinitas. It also stretches into a small, southern portion of Orange County and includes Camp Pendleton.

In that district, the polls indicate incumbent republican Darrell Issa is in the fight of his political life.

Analysts now say the 49th Congressional District is a "toss-up," between the eight-term Congressman Issa and political newcomer, retired marine colonel Doug Applegate.

At the outset, very few thought Darrell Issa would be seriously challenged for his seat Doug Applegate and the Democratic Party have spent a lot of money on ads blasting the congressman for support of Donald Trump.

The Congressman took a big political risk when he endorsed Donald Trump for president and he is not backing down in his support.
