Very GOP part of San Diego. It'd be interesting to contemplate who might replace him if he has to go

Did he spend campaign money on video games again? Or more vape fluid?

Hunter is the biggest meathead in Congress (Here's him making dumb arguments about women in the army, and getting owned by Martha McSally and Tulsi Gabbard). Would love to see him go.

The Republican State Senator from the district that corresponds mostly with CA-50 is termed out, so that's most likely who would replace Hunter.

Why did this area not experience a huge shift towards the Democrats unlike the other SoCal districts in 2016? Donald Trump won it by a resounding 15 point margin; what makes it so different?

I'm from San Diego originally and still have friends in the area. My stab at this Q:

Heavy pop of military retirees
Immigration hardliners
The young people moving in tend to be more conservative than the yuppies in the inner suburbs
SD County was for decades a GOP stronghold nearly on the level of OC - these things take time

Yeah, his district is the San Diego metro outskirts. Don't let Donald Trump's numbers here fool you, it's testament to how much ground the Republicans have lost in California. This is one of the last bastions in the area the Democrats haven't eaten into yet. Assuming Darrel Issa is out come 2018 (a very safe assumption), this seat will host the last Republican in the entire San Diego region.

Hunter is a legend. Likely R. If he goes, it is an end of an era for California Republicans.

What a petty thing to go down by.   Too bad it wasn't Mimi Walter's district or something.

If he resigns, I assume this is pretty safe R? Suburban California district that still voted for Trump by 15 points.

Yes, Safe R.  In the long run this, CA-8 and CA-23 are most likely going to end up being the only Republican districts left in SoCal eventually.

It's heading, slowly, towards being a swing district.   It's already Majority-Minority,  that's worth something by itself.

That was down from the 23% win that the Republican nominee for President received in 2012. Most of the swing was out of places like Escondido and San Marcos, but those are heavily outvoted by the unincorporated areas like Lakeside. Most of the Republican vote in San Diego County is concentrated in CA-50.

Why are so many congressional that get into ethics scandals either very old senior Democrats or young rising Republicans? They always seem to be either a Charlie Rangel or Chaka Fatah-type, or a
 Michael Grimm/Aaron Schock type (of course Hunter too). Just a coincidence?

It can happen to senior Republicans too: Ed Whitfield for example.

Or Duke Cunningham from the 2002-2012 version of CA-50 (which became CA-52 in 2012).
