San Diego County Democratic Leader Discusses 2018 Elections

GUEST:

Jessica Hayes, chair, San Diego County Democratic Party

Transcript

The big political year of 2018 will be, among other things, the first big test for the new chair of the San Diego County Democratic Party.

Jessica Hayes took office in January 2017 with the aim of getting Democrats elected. That's not always a big challenge in California. But this year a traditionally Republican seat on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors is up for grabs, along with the position of district attorney and vulnerable Republican congressional seats. On Wednesday, Republican San Diego Congressman Darrell Issa announced he will not seek reelection.

Hayes discussed the upcoming 2018 elections and the state of the county democratic party Wednesday on Midday Edition.
