Republican Duncan Hunter has attacked his Democratic opponent over his grandfather's alleged ties to terrorism. Now, with those allegations called into question, Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar has changed his position.
"Attacking anyone for the color of their skin or their religion wasn't OK 75 years ago, and it's not OK now," the 97-year-old World War II veteran said.
The California Republican's attacks on his opponent, Ammar Campa-Najjar, are nothing new, and Democrats are calling them "bigoted" remarks.
"I felt compassionate for [Hunter] in the beginning, but now the gloves are off," Campa-Najjar told Newsweek, speaking metaphorically. "If he wants to brawl, we're going to brawl.
"Rule number one of an incumbent," Campa-Najjar said of Duncan Hunter. "You never say the name of your opponent. Unless you feel threatened by them."
