50th Congressional District candidate Ammar Campa-Najjar opposes many Democrat party line votes

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The 2020 general election is just over 70 days away, and the race for the 50th Congressional District will be one to watch.

Republican candidate Darrell Issa is running against Democrat candidate Ammer Campa-Najjar to win the seat once held by Duncan D. Hunter.

In the past, Campa-Najjar stood up to the Democrat party and opposed the Gas tax increase, condemned the states inconsistencies during the economic shutdown, and condemned the state’s failed energy policy that is forcing residents to conserve energy and shutdown in the middle of a heatwave and pandemic.

Campa-Najjar is emphasizing these policies saying his record in Washington “will show that I’m not a typical Democrat. I vote the issue, I vote the person, not the party.”

Campa-Najjar also discussed his grandfather’s past history, an issue that was highlighted by then opponent Duncan D. Hunter ahead of the 2018 election.

Campa-Najjar told KUSI’s Elizabeth Alvarez that he never knew his grandfather, and he can’t be judged by his grandfather’s wrongdoings, just as those whose ancestors owned slaves shouldn’t be judged as slave owners today.
