Ammar Campa-Najjar is running for Congress in California’s 50th District. Ammar will face (R) Duncan Hunter in the General Election in November.
In 2012, Ammar served as Deputy Regional Field Director for Obama’s reelection campaign. After the election, Ammar worked in the Obama administration as an official at the Labor Department.
Ammar is anti President Trump. Ammar says that if he wins, he will be President Trump’s worse nightmare. Ammar wrote on Facebook:
…I’ve served in Washington, confronted Trump and lived to tell it.
If you send me back, I’ll be Trump’s worst nightmare: the first Latino-Arab American elected to congress in the Trump era.
Ammar’s grandfather, Muhammad Yusuf al-Najjar also known as Abu Youssef, was a member of the Palestinian terrorist group Black September, which took eleven Israeli Olympic team members hostage and killed them in 1972. Muhammad Yusuf al-Najjar helped mastermind the terror attack, known as the Munich massacre. Al-Najjar was assassinated for his involvement in the massacre.
