Rep. Duncan Hunter is driving everyone crazy because he actually might get re-elected.
As the San Diego Union-Tribune correctly reports, President Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in Hunter’s 50th district by 15 points.
Hunter, an early supporter of Trump, might be one of the few politicians in the county who could benefit politically by being seen with the president during his visit.
Hunter is now mostly known for: a criminal investigation into his campaign finances, his drinking, his questionable relationships with women and his aggressive advocacy of smoking e-cigarettes, or vaping.
The GOP elites in Washington have grown impatient with Hunter and have given the OK to consultants to work with Republican candidates opposing him.
El Cajon Mayor Bill Wells plans to challenge Hunter. Former San Diego councilman Carl DeMaio is doing the same. As is little-known Republican, businessman Shamus Sayed.
Despite all these obstacles, the race is still Hunter’s to lose.
