Former Councilman Carl DeMaio decides against running for Congress

first_img SAN DIEGO (CNS) – Former San Diego city councilman Carl DeMaio announced Friday he has decided against a run for Congress in order to focus on a campaign that aims to roll back last year’s increase to the gas tax.DeMaio bowed out four days after pulling nomination papers to challenge incumbent fellow Republican Duncan Hunter in the 50th Congressional District.Candidates have until the end of the day Friday to turn in their papers.“While I, too, am frustrated with the lack of results and the double standards for Washington politicians, I believe the Gas Tax Repeal Initiative campaign and our plans for subsequent reform initiatives in California are so much more important,” DeMaio wrote in an email to supporters Friday afternoon.Hunter is facing challengers from both parties amid a federal investigation into whether the five-term GOP incumbent misused campaign funds.The field includes Democrats Patrick Malloy, Pierre Beauregard, Josh Butner and Ammar Campa-Najjar and Republicans Shamus Sayed and Bill Wells.

Expressing disappointment over the September numbers, Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO) President S C Ralhan said the decline of 17.6 per cent in first six months of the fiscal will put enormous pressure even in realising the export figure which India achieved in 2014-15. “As against seven sectors which were in positive out of 30 for which disaggregated data is available for August, the number of sectors has further compressed to six only for the month of September,” he said.Ralhan however, expressed the hope that export numbers in coming months would be better following cut in interest rate by the RBI and encouraging IIP and manufacturing data of August. The data showed that non-oil imports during September were estimated at $25.697 billion which were 10.68 per cent lower than $28.76 billion in the same month of 2014.last_img read more
