Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter has held on to his seat in California, edging out Democrat candidate Ammar Campa-Najjar.
Hunter clinched victory in the Golden State’s 50th District after winning over about 54-percent of voters.
Hunter faced controversy throughout his campaign as he faces charges of misusing campaign funds. However, his Democrat opponent was marred in controversy after it was revealed his grandfather was involved in the terror attack on the 1972 Olympics.
“Two months later, Mr. Najjar tried to assassinate Israeli Prime Minister Goldamair —
if you tell me that this guy is not going to pass on military information to this guy, my answer is don’t bet your life on it,” stated Hunter on the controversy plaguing his opponent.
The California congressman and Marine veteran supports prohibiting abortion, protecting gun rights and improving border security.
