Report: Rep. Duncan Hunter Jr. To Resign, Issa To Run for CD-50

Now I am getting real whiplash backlash.

I get three statements today from a source indicating another round of CAGOP musical chairs, focusing specifically on San Diego County.

Congressman Darrell Issa announced his decision to retire from Congress after 18 years in office.

Then I heard from a solid source that Rep. Duncan Hunter is going to retire, in part because of ramped up FBI investigations into his misuse of campaign funds for private and personal use.

Duncan Hunter to retire?

This revelation is crazy.

Is it really possible that Congressman Darrell Issa would run away from one district to jump into another district the same year?

Legally, a Congressman can run in any district within a state, as long as the said representative lives in that state. Is it ethical or moral, however? That's definitely debatable.

Hunter has gone from under suspicion to embattled because of the campaign finance issues. If this develops into something worse, San Diego GOP will see a repeat of former Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham.

Not good. Not good.
