California Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter has won a sixth term despite facing federal allegations of illegally spending campaign money for personal expenses….a charge which he has denied.
Hunter’s Democrat opponent, Ammar Campa Najjar, is the grandson of the Palestinian Muslim terrorist who led the Munich Olympic massacre of Israeli athletes.
CBS 8 Hunter beat Palestinian Muslim Democratic candidate Ammar Campa Najjar on Wednesday in a deeply red San Diego-area district. With 100 percent of the votes counted, the GOP incumbent finished with an 8-point lead over Najjar, a former Obama administration official,
Few incumbents in U.S. history have been re-elected while indicted and the race was considered a fresh test of partisanship during the era of President Donald Trump.
Hunter’s campaign released a much-debated TV ad in September that framed Najjar as a terrorist sympathizer and claimed he is supported by the fundamentalist Sunni Islamic extremist group the Muslim Brotherhood. The ad also called Najjar a security risk,
despite because of the fact that he served as a White House staffer during the Obama administration.
Hunter, a former U.S. Marine and son of former Rep. Duncan Lee Hunter, has served in Congress since 2009. Hunter first represented District 52, but redistricting after the 2010 census shifted him to the 50th district.
Ammar Najjar is the grandson of Muhammad Yusuf Al-Najjar (aka Abu Yusuf), a senior member of the Palestinian terrorist organization Black September , which carried out numerous terror attacks including the Munich massacre where 11 Israeli Olympic athletes were tortured, castrated, and massacred during the 1972 Summer Olympics . His grandfather was the leader of that attack. Najjar’s father is Yasser Najjar, a former Palestinian Authority official.
In a campaign ad from Duncan Hunter, “Najjar is working to infiltrate Congress,” the narrator says. “He’s used three different names to hide his family’s ties to terrorism.” Najjar is a 29-year-old of Palestinian descent who worked in the Obama White House and Labor Department.
