Ammar Campa-Najjar Out-Raises Duncan Hunter

Shatters Challenger Fundraising Record for 50th District

Ammar Campa-Najjar broke the all-time fundraising record for a challenger in California’s 50th Congressional district, more than all other challengers combined, raising more than $165,000 from over 1,000 individual donors.

This also marks the first time a Duncan Hunter, senior or junior, has been outraised.

Campa-Najjar, the first congressional candidate of Latino and Arab descent, received over 1,000 individual donations, without accepting a single contribution from a PAC or corporate committee. In fact, the majority of Campa-Najjar’s donors contributed $25 or less, which also is a first from a challenger in the 50th district.

Hunter Jr., on the other hand, reported just 139 individual donors, of which, 58% came from political PACs and corporate committees.

Campa-Najjar promises to challenge the complacency of establishment politics and reject the divisive nature of two-sided thinking. “I’m going to lead with my values and consider every voter a potential supporter. Bringing more middle-class jobs to our district through apprenticeship programs, for example, is not a liberal or conservative idea. It just makes sense. I think that’s the kind of independent thinking we could use in Washington DC.”

In an email to his supporters, Campa-Najjar said:

If and when we win this race, I want to depend on YOU, the American people for the decisions that I’d be making in Congress.
​With the way our political system is set up, the only way to insulate yourself from special interest influence is to run a people–powered campaign.
And that’s exactly what we’re running: A people-powered campaign – of, by and for the people.”

Ammar Campa-Najjar will be available to the press for interviews via phone and in-person upon request.
