Darrell Issa

FILE - In this Sept. 26, 2019 file photo, former Republican congressman Darrell Issa speaks during a news conference in El Cajon, Calif. The race to fill the vacated seat of former Republican U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter of California has turned into a GOP slugfest. Hunter held one of the party's few remaining House seats in California before he pleaded guilty to a corruption charge and resigned last month. The race to replace him has been especially bitter between the Republican front-runners, former congressman Issa and San Diego radio host and political commentator Carl DeMaio.
