In a blistering editorial, Nunes’ hometown newspaper slammed his performance as a congressman, calling it “nothing short of embarrassing.”
“He certainly isn’t representing his Central Valley constituents or Californians, who care much more about health care, jobs and, yes, protecting Dreamers than about the latest conspiracy theory,” the editorial stated. “Instead, he’’s doing dirty work for House Republican leaders trying to protect President Donald Trump in the Russia investigation.”
. . .
But thanks in large part to his disgraceful performance over the past year, his district is no longer considered a “safe Republican” seat, according to top election forecaster Larry Sabato.
As Nunes struggles to keep his campaign afloat, his Democratic challenger — Fresno County Deputy District Attorney Andrew Janz — continues to have fundraising success, taking in more than $1 million in the first quarter of 2018.
Nunes can whine about “radical leftists” and the “nasty” mainstream media all he wants, but blaming his problems on imaginary boogeymen isn’t going to help him. His re-election campaign is failing because he is failing at his job.
