posted on November 5, 2018

The Atlantic’s McKay Coppins writes about California Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter’s campaign this election cycle, which has relied on anti-Muslim rhetoric in the wake of an indictment against the congressman for the misuse of campaign funds. Coppins writes, “In the final weeks of the election, Hunter has aired ominous ads warning that his Democratic opponent, Ammar Campa-Najjar, is ‘working to infiltrate Congress’ with the support of the Muslim Brotherhood.” Coppins adds, “A recent report by Muslim Advocates, an Oakland, California-based civil-rights group, named 80 office-seekers in federal, state, and local races across the country this year who have expressed anti-Muslim sentiments.”
