When a Democrat with Palestinian-Mexican ancestry who had never before run for office was elected to challenge a Republican incumbent in a staunchly conservative southern California congressional district, few gave him much of a chance.Polls show Hunter maintaining a comfortable lead over Campa-Najjar, though not as wide as his 27 percentage point margin of victory in 2016 . A Monmouth University Poll of 401 voters conducted between Sept. 22 and 26, found 53 percent of likely voters supported Hunter versus 38 percent for Campa-Najjar. Hunter is not the only Republican congressman running for reelection while fighting criminal charges.Campa-Najjar's fundraising has outpaced Hunter's, according to Federal Election Commission data through June 2018 .Hunter's campaign had reported contributions of $854,787, while Campa-Najjar had reported nearly $1.1 million.
