Escondido Indivisible Votes Tonight

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NOVEMBER 27, 2017
RAMONA – On Sunday, citizens cast the first votes for the Indivisible CA50 endorsement of a Democratic challenger to replace Rep. Duncan Hunter. At an Indivisible Ramona meeting, residents from both inside and outside District 50 voted for one of four 2018 Democratic contenders: Pete Beauregard, Josh Butner, Ammar Campa-Najjar and Patrick Malloy. Prior to voting, Beauregard, Campa-Najjar and Malloy each spoke to the group.
“Indivisible’s grassroots base across the region is committed to defeating Duncan Hunter, who voted to raise our taxes and take our health care,” said Kathy Steel of San Marcos, a leader of Indivisible CA50. “We are recruiting and uniting an army of Indivisible activists to not only endorse a candidate, but to work our hearts out for him in 2018. We intend to both flip the 50th and strengthen progressive support for down ballot races across our district.”
Indivisible members will vote in a series of similar meetings during the next three weeks. If one candidate secures at least 2/3 of the vote, a winner will be announced on December 21, 2017.
In early January, a billboard will go up in Fallbrook informing 455,00 voters per week that Duncan Hunter is still under FBI investigation. Hunter is in legal jeopardy for spending more than $60,000 in campaign funds on personal expenses, such as private schooling, videogames, a garage door and luxury family vacations. Nearly 200 donors contributed $7700 in 10 days to fund the billboard.
Here is the current schedule of endorsement meetings. More will be added.
