Nunes absenteeism continues unabated – victory celebrated in Hanford

nunes_win_hanford

I suppose congratulations are in order. Devin Nunes kept his seat, winning CA22 with 56% of the vote over Andrew Janz’s 44%. That’s the closest margin I can recall in a long time (other than the time he ran unopposed), so Janz at least gave him a run for his money.

Since he won, he’s certainly entitled to celebrate with like-minded folks, but come on…

in Hanford?

Nunes has been accused of being an absentee representative, who refuses to talk to his constituents unless they write a large campaign check first. He’s held no town halls in years, and for the past two has been on a rampage against any media outlets who dare ask him questions. The only exception seems to be Fox, who often interview him from what’s labeled as the World Ag Expo, even though that only happens a few days a year. I assume they mean the International Agri-Center in Tulare, but with Fox you can never be sure. Channel 30 was refused comment as they tried to cover his re-election celebration.

So how does Devin handle the win? Celebrating in Hanford. Just in case you’re wondering, Hanford’s not in CA22. It’s not even close.

Even in victory, Nunes is an absentee representative. His supporters don’t seem to care.
