GOP Rep. Darrell Issa Predicts Dem Will Flip His Seat

Hours before the polls closed on Tuesday, outgoing Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) predicted Democrat Mike Levin would win the seat he held for eight terms. “My district was never in play this cycle, and so it was never funded, and quite frankly we know the results already and there will be a Democrat representing La Jolla and Solana Beach for the first time in a number of years,” Issa said in a segment on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom. Despite his admission, the congressman maintains the GOP will have the opportunity to regain power in his state in the future. “I have to remind people I took that part of the district from a Democrat and someday it will be taken back,” he told host Bill Hemmer. “For now California is leaning very hard to the left.”
