After Retirement Announcement, GOP Rep. Darrell Issa Considering Run in Neighboring District

After Retirement Announcement, GOP Rep. Darrell Issa Considering Run in Neighboring District”

"The College Republicans at UCSD would like to thank Congressman Issa for 17 years of service to California's 49th Congressional District and the American people", said Drew Olbrant, second year and member of the College Republicans at UCSD.

His 18-career in the lower chamber includes time as chair of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and as a proponent of federal information technology reform efforts such as the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act and the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act.

FITARA provided federal chief information officers oversight over IT portfolios and required agencies to consolidate data centers. Issa's spokesman Calvin Moore said by text.

"For years, Rep. Darrell Issa put cashing checks from the gun lobby before strengthening laws to keep the public safe", Ambler says.

Rep. Darryll Issa is joined by more than a dozen Republican members of Congress as he speaks during a news conference about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program at the U.S. Capitol on November 9, 2017.

Issa's longtime political consultant, Dave Gilliard, disputed The Hill's story saying, "I don't believe he's making those calls, no".

For instance, the registration is still favoring Republicans in the Issa district and in the Royce district.

"If I was to blow up in the air, then he would be running for it", Hunter told The Hill.

To that end, Flip the 49th today scheduled a noon rally outside Issa's district office at 1800 Thibodo Road, Vista, and another rally/campaign meeting at 5:30 p.m.at 5145 Avenida Encinas, Suite I, Carlsbad.

Hunter told The Hill on Thursday that he has no plans to retire and had not heard about the Issa rumor.

"If I blow up, yes". "If I was to blow up, then he would run for the seat".

Issa was facing increasingly hard odds in hanging onto his current seat.

Of course, in that same election, Issa only defeated Democratic challenger Doug Applegate by fewer than 2,000 votes.

Hunter's seat, east of Issa's, is more conservative and would be easier for Republicans to hang on to. "Another thing to think about, when you get a Republican candidate in there, who has not been associated with Donald Trump, they have more of an ability to distance themselves than the incumbent does".

But Hunter, a quirky, sometimes controversial Marine Corps reservist perhaps best known for vaping during a congressional hearing, has faced multiple ethics investigations. Hunter's campaign spent more than $1,300 in video game purchases, something he blamed on his son, as well as other funds for airfare for the family rabbit and his children's private school tuition. Hunter told reporters Thursday that he had not personally received a subpoena related to the matter.
