November 3, 2012 (San Diego’s East County) – Four years after winning election to replace his father in the House of Representatives, what sort of record has Congressman Duncan D. Hunter amassed in Washington? To help voters assess Rep. Hunter’s two terms, ECM has taken a look at his voting record, legislation, campaign finances, campaign promises, and ratings from a variety of interest groups ranging from senior citizens, women and immigrant groups to business groups, educators, labor, gun rights, environmental, and veterans organizations.
Hunter refused to participate in any debates against his opponent, David Secor since the primary election. Secor interviewed with ECM and asserts that Hunter has ignored the needs of middle class voters and those who struggling in his district, also taking extreme stances on women's and senior's issues.
Hunter, a combat veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, failed to respond to interview requests from ECM and other prominent East County media. He also failed to provide information to the League of Women Voters for its nonpartisan SmartVoter site. He has not held a single live town hall meeting in his district . Locally, his appearances have been largely restricted to Chamber of Commerce and Tea Party events, as well as Republican fundraisers.
Below is the information on his record that we’ve compiled based on nonpartisan independent sources and his own legislative office.
