Former House Oversight Chairman, and current candidate for the 50th Congressional District Darrell Issa, spoke with Mark Larson on KFMB yesterday. Key takeaways:
1- Issa understands the geopolitics of the Middle East and can be a great adviser to the President (from Congress).
2- Governor Newsom doesn’t want Issa in this seat through a special election because it brings an austere opponent to Nancy Pelosi. By leaving the seat open until the General Election, it lets Pelosi avoid Issa.
3- Issa will defeat Campa-Najjaar by 12-15 percentage points in this District.
