Ammar Campa-Najjar Discusses His Second Run For Congress
One of the most high-profile races in San Diego County is the contest in the 50th Congressional District.
There are four leading candidates trying to succeed former Republican Congressman Duncan D. Hunter, who resigned in January after pleading guilty to misspending campaign funds.
Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar is one of them. He ran against Hunter in 2018 and lost by fewer than 9,000 votes. The top two vote-getters in the March 3 primary will advance to the November general election.
The 50th Congressional District is a traditionally conservative and has had Duncan Hunter, father or son, as its representative for 40 years. The district has a population of 750,000 and covers much of north and east San Diego County.
Campa-Najjar joined Midday Edition on Wednesday to talk about his second run for Congress.
