Putting people over politics in CA-50
Ammar Campa-Najjar was born and raised in San Diego. After attending community college and San Diego State University, he worked in the Executive Office of the President in the Obama administration, and at the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Department of Labor.
A leading voice on the campaign trail for reforming Washington
Ammar has been vocal on reform since early on in his first campaign, and would be a strong ally in the fight for reform in Congress. He is rejecting both corporate PAC and lobbyist donations, and would work for the people of California’s 50th district in Congress, not for corporate special interests.
A chance to beat one of Washington’s most corrupt politicians
Campa-Najjar nearly won this seat in 2018, losing by just over 3%. His opponent, Duncan Hunter, and Hunter’s wife, were indicted on 60 criminal counts after a federal investigation for campaign finance violations. The indictment alleges that Hunter and his wife used at least $250,000 of campaign donations for personal expenses. Campa-Najjar has widespread local support in the district, and is poised to flip this seat.
