Darrell Issa Targets Homocon’s Sexuality In New Ad

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports:

A new campaign ad from former Rep. Darrell Issa has drawn criticism from some of his Republican colleagues for highlighting the sexuality of his opponent Carl DeMaio. The TV ad, which began airing earlier this week, runs 30 seconds and begins by decrying a recent attack ad from DeMaio.

The ad also highlighted negative comments DeMaio has made about President Donald Trump in news articles that featured headlines emphasizing that DeMaio is gay.

“You’re talking about some headlines from actual newspapers,” Issa said. “I certainly think you should talk to The Hill and the Blade and ask them why they use those words.” He added that the headlines are from stories that document DeMaio’s “real failures” and indicated his campaign will continue to reference the articles.
