DCCC Statement on Darrell Issa Retirement in CA-49

IRVINE – Upon the announcement that Darrell Issa would not be seeking re-election in California’s 49th District, DCCC spokesperson Drew Godinich released the following statement:

“The Republican agenda in Washington has been a direct attack on Californians. After passing a devastating tax scam and fighting to rip away healthcare from millions of families, California Republicans clearly see the writing on the wall and realize that their party and its priorities are toxic to their re-election chances in 2018.

“Secretary Clinton won this district by a huge margin in 2016, and the cohort of strong Democratic challengers, unprecedented grassroots activism, and historic investment by the DCCC in Southern California means we are in a strong position to elect a Democrat to the 49th District this fall.”
