Incumbent’s indictment roils California congressional race

RAMONA, Calif. (AP) — Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter is under indictment as he seeks a sixth term in his mainly San Diego County district.

He has spent as much on legal fees as his re-election campaign but still is favored to win because the GOP holds a 15-point registration advantage.

It’s become a bare-knuckles affair with Hunter seeming to insinuate his 29-year-old opponent, Ammar Campa-Najjar, is a Muslim extremist while Campa-Najjar, a Christian, says Hunter has lost his grip on reality.

Hunter is one of two indicted Republican congressmen seeking re-election. The other is New York Rep. Chris Collins, accused of insider trading.
