Three political newcomers take on Issa in 49th

By Joe Tash

On June 5, residents of the 49th Congressional District will choose between four candidates to represent them in the U.S. House of Representatives: Republican Darrell Issa, who seeks his seventh term, and three political newcomers who have never run for office before.

A lot has changed since the last congressional election in 2010: for one thing, the boundaries of the district have been redrawn following the 2010 census, as they are every decade.  The new district includes Rancho Santa Fe, Del Mar and Solana Beach, and, according to Issa, contains only about 31 percent of territory from the previous district boundaries.

Secondly, California’s new open primary law means all voters, regardless of political registration, will be able to vote for all candidates on the ballot.  The top two vote-getters in June will face off in a November run-off election.
