FILE - In this Dec. 3, 2019 file photo, California Republican Rep. Duncan D. Hunter leaves federal court in San Diego. Hunter has indicated he's on his way out of office after pleading guilty to a corruption charge, a break for California's beleaguered GOP that increases the chances the party keeps one of its few remaining House seats in the heavily Democratic state. But Hunter's pending departure also comes with a measure of uncertainty. There is no clear Republican favorite to succeed him in the San Diego County district, setting the stage for several months of party infighting in a race that could turn on local political loyalties or the potential involvement of President Donald Trump.
