January 15, 2018
JANUARY 15, 2018
SAN DIEGO – After last week’s stunning news that: 1) Rep. Darrell Issa will not run for reelection in CA49; 2) federal prosecutors are convening a grand jury for Rep. Duncan Hunter; 3) Issa may run in CA50 if Hunter resigns; and 4) Hunter says he won’t resign; Indivisible and its coalition partners continue the work to flip both CA49 and CA50 blue.
This week, rallies in both districts will focus on the 2018 elections. A special Resistance Road Trip next week will sends a message to Issa as he circles the perishing political career of his colleague Hunter like a buzzard waiting for death.

“Hunter Is Under Criminal Investigation” Billboard Rally
Mission Road & Old Highway 395 Fallbrook 92028
[see site details below*]
Flip CA 50th raised $7,500 to display a new billboard telling voters that Rep. Duncan Hunter is under criminal investigation. As a grand jury hears evidence this month on Hunter’s campaign finance troubles, CA50 voters will be educated about their congressman’s ethics. The billboard location ensures 445,000 impressions per week for four weeks. Indivisible members and others will rally with Democratic candidate Ammar Campa-Najjar and commit to reminding voters throughout 2018 that Hunter lacks integrity and does not represent his district’s values.

TUESDAY JANUARY 23
Repeal the Trump Tax Rallies
Voters will rally in CA49 at 10 AM, outside the Vista office of Rep. Darrell Issa, then board a bus to join a noon rally at Rep. Duncan Hunter’s Temecula office in CA50 to oppose Hunter’s vote for the GOP tax bill. The message to Rep. Hunter is that the united resistance is coming for your seat after you voted to raise our taxes. The message to Rep. Issa is that if you decide to run for Congress in CA50, the resistance will follow and defeat you there.
