CEA's Issa Wins Primary For Seat In Congress

CEA chairman Darrell Issa won the Republican nomination for the open San Diego seat to Congress.

According to CEA, because Issa's district is heavily Republican, a general election win in November is anticipated.

"Darrell was in a crowded field of some 11 candidates and captured 35% of the vote, compared to 23% for his nearest opponent," said CEA president Gary Shapiro. "This is terrific news not only for Darrell but for our association, as it is extraordinary for a trade group to have a sitting chairman [or a member] be elected to Congress."
