Patrick Malloy, candidate for Congress in the 50th District, has challenged the incumbent, Duncan Hunter of Alpine, to two debates in October. In a letter sent to Hunter on August 15, Malloy said there should be two debates. The first should be on veterans’ issues and the second on the economy and the environment because these issues are of top concern in the District, according to Malloy.
Malloy stated that the District deserves debates given a deeply divided America—an America that needs sharper clarifications and conversations than the 30 second TV ads or 140 character tweets will give us. In his letter, Malloy said that a neutral veterans’ group should host the debates and that civility and a sense of patriotism should be expected. Malloy teased the incumbent by saying that he would let him decide the dates and location given “the hectic Congressional agenda and Hunter’s busy schedule as a Trump spokesperson.” Malloy asked for Hunter’s response by Labor Day and expects a positive response given that Congress will be in recess in September and October.
For further information or questions contact Patrick Malloy directly at 760-809-5651 or his campaign staff at 760-471-1765.

As a Surrogate for Donald Trump, Duncan Hunter Mocks His Own Constituents
“Duncan Hunter, (R-CA) a surrogate and prominent member of Donald Trump’s campaign, has repeatedly slammed and dishonored veterans, women, minorities, and the disabled in his own congressional district,” Patrick Malloy, congressional candidate, said today. “Trump and Hunter are joined at the hip,” he stated.
In a letter to the Republican National Committee (RNC) this week, one hundred Republicans pulled their support for Trump and urged the RNC to do the same. Yet, during this same week, Politico, an online news source, carried an article written by Hunter wholeheartedly supporting Trump’s candidacy.
“Hunter, as Trump’s surrogate, then has attacked: Gold Star families of soldiers who have died serving their country, mocked disabled veterans among others who are disabled, and spoke in disgraceful ways about minorities and women. Hunter has only praise for Trump and silence about Trump’s disgraceful statements,” Malloy said. “Silence is compliance.”
“The incumbent also needs to explain why he uses his campaign financing fund as a personal ATM account: paying for video games; jewelry and travel in Italy; pricy private school lunches for his kids; expenses at Disneyland, Legoland, and Sea World; and vacations at a Hawaiian resort,” Malloy stated. “This is either sloppy or corrupt.”
The Federal Elections Commission (FEC) has recently launched two inquiries into Hunter’s campaign spending, and Hunter has hired a lawyer to represent him.
Malloy stated that he has “lost patience with this hurtful, and do-nothing Congress that does not meet even the basic needs of this District.” He is an independent voice who will represent all in the district.
