The FreedomWorks earmark pledge is a defining issue in the GOP primary to replace retiring Rep. Duncan Hunter, California. From the San Diego Union-Tribune:
Three Republican hopefuls – Bob Watkins, Brian Jones and Hunter's son Duncan D. Hunter – sounded similar themes at a county Republican Party debate in El Cajon last night before about 250 people, but one topic on which they differed was whether to commit to opposing earmarks.
Jones, 39, a Santee councilman, challenged his opponents in the June primary for the 52nd Congressional District to sign an anti-earmark pledge, but Hunter, a Marine captain, said he could not.
