IVN San Diego has learned from well placed sources that newly elected County Supervisor Kristin Gaspar took a call from House Speaker Paul Ryan, and is being urged to run for the seat vacated by Congressman Darrell Issa.
Gaspar, who is a Republican, was elected to the County Board of Supervisors last November.
She was previously the Mayor of Encinitas from 2014-2016.
In San Diego County, District 3 is included in the 49th Congressional District, so many of the same voters who put Gaspar in office, would be asked to elect her for the Congressional seat.
IVN reached out to Political Strategist Jason Cabel Roe for comment. Roe handled Gaspar’s campaign for Supervisor. He has yet to respond to our request.
