The Republican Incumbent: Duncan Hunter

Indicted Congressman Duncan Hunter is desperately running racist ads in the 50th District in a desperate attempt to save his seat. Let's defeat him in November to help him focus on his many legal problems without distraction. Hunter was one of the first Republicans in Congress to back Trump, and he’s a champion of the “border wall” that Mexico still isn’t paying for. Hunter’s got to go.

  • 35% of the children in CA-50 are on Medicaid or CHIP, and
  • 16% of the adults in CA-50 are on Medicaid
