Darrell Issa & Doug Applegate

California’s 49th (CA - 49)

Updated: October 30, 2016

Narrative

Darrell Issa is everything that is wrong with Washington. He is a typical politician who puts his political party ahead of his country and his own self-interest ahead of doing what’s right for southern Californians. That’s why we need to send Colonel Doug Applegate, a Marine, to Congress—he will put the country before any party or political agenda.

Proof Points

Issa puts himself and his party politics first. He is one of Donald Trump’s senior advisors and says that Trump is “the obvious choice” for president. Like Trump, Issa has used the broken system in Washington to make himself richer. On multiple occasions, Issa took government actions that helped make himself richer, and helped secure millions of taxpayer dollars to benefit commercial properties he owned. And during his time in Congress, Issa has taken government actions that helped make himself richer; his personal wealth increased by up to $200 million dollars. (BACKUP)

Doug Applegate is a retired 32-year Marine Colonel who served a combat tour in Iraq and will always put the country before any party or political agenda. (BACKUP)
