Stark: "I Got a Little Heated" but Was "Bullied"

In Stark's retelling, he said it was Torrico doing the bullying. "I was disappointed to join the ranks of those he has bullied," Stark said, accusing Torrico of making "insulting comments about my age and family." Age has been a major issue in the reelection bid of Stark, who is 80. His opponent is 31. Stark went on to question Torrico's motivations for going public and support Swalwell. "The answer for Mr. Torrico may lie in the fact that he works for a lobbying firm now and maybe he has other axes to grind," Stark said in the statement. Torrico had said he planned to be a "passive supporter" of Swalwell, but after the heated conversation with Stark he is "going to do everything I can" to defeat the incumbent.
