Senator Brian Jones on Rep. Hunter’s guilty plea and 50th district race

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – After months of denying culpability and insisting he was the target of a politically motivated prosecution, Rep. Duncan Hunter, pleaded guilty Tuesday to a federal charge of conspiracy to misuse campaign funds for personal use.

Hunter faces a possible five-year prison term and a $250,000 fine when he is sentenced March 17.

State Senator Brian Jones, who represents the 38th State Senate district and is a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in California’s 50th district, was in studio to talk about the Congressman’s plea change and the race for 50th Congressional District.
