Democrat Colonel Doug Applegate is making a strong run at embattled Republican Darrell Issa in the 49th Congressional District, which the Cook Political Report and the Rothenberg & Gonzales Political Report have labeled a “toss-up.” Democrats also are seeking to return Rep. Scott Peters to Congress.

Democrats have tripled their voter registration edge over Republicans in San Diego County since January, driven by on-the-ground outreach and grassroots support.

The ads are paid for by the California Democratic Party.
