Carl DeMaio is blasting Rep. Duncan Hunter’s decision to delay his resignation from Congress – noting that the delayed timing is an intentional effort to manipulate the election timetable to prevent a Special Election to fill the Congressional District.

Carl DeMaio also offers the following statement:

“By intentionally delaying his resignation past the deadline for the calling of a Special Election, Congressman Duncan Hunter is silencing the voice of the voters of the 50th District for a full year in Congress. The voters of the 50th District deserve having their voice back in Congress as soon as possible and only a Special Election can give the voters a voice again. I urge Congressman Hunter to reconsider the timing of his resignation to provide a better and more expeditious transition of his office.”
