2016 chal­lenger Doug Ap­pleg­ate (D) “says a former polit­ic­al con­sult­ant failed to re­port large me­dia buys on dis­clos­ure forms dur­ing Ap­pleg­ate’s un­suc­cess­ful run last year. The cam­paign offered the ex­plan­a­tion in a let­ter on Tues­day to the Fed­er­al Elec­tion Com­mis­sion.” Cam­paign man­ager Robert De­mp­sey said the cam­paign re­placed its con­sult­ant in Decem­ber. De­mp­sey did not name the con­sult­ant.” (San Diego Uni­on-Tribune)

Ap­pleg­ate lost to Issa in one of the closest House races of 2016. He’s run­ning again in 2018 as is en­vir­on­ment­al at­tor­ney Mike Lev­in (D).
