Duncan Hunter Airs Ad Suggesting Opponent Is Terrorist Sympathizer

Indicted congressman falsely ties opponent to terrorism

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics ... terrorism/
Hunter, who has been indicted on charges of misusing campaign money, still has a shot at reelection and is running an attack ad warning that his opponent, Ammar Campa-Najjar, has terrorist ties and is seeking to “infiltrate Congress.”

Never mind that Campa-Najjar is a Christian born and raised in San Diego. Never mind that his grandfather died years before he was born. Never mind that his father wasn’t around much and that Campa-Najjar was raised by his mother and her Mexican American family. Never mind that Campa-Najjar obtained a security clearance for his past work in the Obama White House and the Labor Department. The Hunter ad ignores those biographical details and paints Campa-Najjar as a threat reared by terrorists.

We gave Hunter Three Pinocchios in a previous fact-check for suggesting that his indictment was a hit job by Democrats. (The U.S. attorney in San Diego, who was appointed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, approved the indictment.)
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/28/us/p ... ck-ad.html
Representative Duncan Hunter, the California Republican whose re-election campaign has been imperiled by a federal indictment, has released a startling attack against his Democratic challenger, suggesting that he is an Islamic terrorist sympathizer and national security risk.

“Ammar Campa-Najjar is working to infiltrate Congress,” says the narrator of Mr. Hunter’s ad, released on YouTube, in reference to the Democrat running against him. “He’s used three different names to hide his family’s ties to terrorism.”

Mr. Campa-Najjar, who until Mr. Hunter’s troubles was considered a very long shot to win a predominantly Republican district in the San Diego suburbs, has a Mexican-American mother and a father who immigrated from the Middle East. His paternal grandfather, Muhammad Youssef al-Najjar, was involved with the plan to murder Israeli athletes at the Olympic Games in Germany in 1972; he was assassinated by Israeli military commandos in 1973.

It's a very red district, Hunter was just throwing his supporters red meat. Latest poll by Monmouth University shows Hunter with a 15 point lead, not even close for Ammar Campa-Najjar. Hunter will win.

Yeah, even California can produce reps like Nunes and Hunter. Blue America is realizing that the country is not as far removed from the 1950s as they thought.

Just thought it was good to point out that some winning Reps only run on fear & hate. November will be interesting. Heartbreak and victories will be mixed.

The latest poll I have seen shows Hunter 48%, three points ahead. Any good news about this race?

The incumbent Duncan Hunter is still favored to win. His father also Duncan Hunter is out campaigning for his son, painting Compa-Najjar (D) as a threat to national security

The comments are great too.

Can he cast House votes from jail?
Will his fellow grifter pardon him?

Didja hear?: Melania's staff is FURIOUS that she's accused of spending $95,000 for a single night in Cairo. And it's not true! Really! It's FAKE, FAKE NEWS!

She spent $95,000 on the hotel and was only there for 6 hours! :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao:

Let's just hope Hunter isn't elected so we can skip the uncomfortable WhatIfs.

I loved that Melania story. Fake outrage is just so common these days.
