Applegate Campaign Slams Donald Trump's Endorsement of Darrell Issa

Solana Beach, Calif. - In response to Donald Trump's endorsement of Darrell Issa on Twitter, Robert Dempsey, Applegate's campaign manager, released the following statement:

"Darrell Issa once again shows why he's unfit to represent this district in Congress. When he's not busy lining his own pockets, he's trying to score political brownie points with one of the least qualified candidates for president in the history of the United States," said Robert Dempsey, Applegate's campaign manager. "I guess Issa couldn't help himself in showing the voters of this district that he really is a mini-Trump who will always put party before country."
