Race for 50th Congressional District heats up before Duncan Hunter trial

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – For 39 years, the Hunter family has represented San Diego in the 50th Congressional District, but that may come to an end next year.

Rep. Duncan D. Hunter currently holds the seat, but he’s facing a criminal trial in January. Since the charges were brought against Hunter, several challengers have entered the race, most of whom are fellow Republicans.

Hunter’s trial was recently moved from September to January. He was indicted by a grand jury for misusing campaign funds.
