A progressive coalition led by Indivisible drew the largest ever “Resist Trump Tuesday” crowd outside the Vista office of Rep. Darrell Issa.
A few weeks ago, a hundred people were considered a good turnout. Last week, with a vote on #Trumpcare looming, over 300 people participated in a “die-in” to call attention to the shortcomings of the GOP package.
A head count taken by the group totaled up 620 citizens who came out on a Tuesday morning to call out Issa for not taking a harder line on #TrumpRussia and for his willingness to vote for the AHRA. CNN sent cameras to the protest, airing footage at 4 & 7pm PST.
A large contingent came over from Duncan Hunter’s (District 50) turf. Last Saturday’s protest at Westfield North County Mall was considered so successful that organizers with Indivisible are planning an encore for Saturday, April 1 at 11am.
Meanwhile, Issa skipped a critical House vote today and tweeted about meeting with constituents in his San Clemente office.

I’m sure the 49th District Congressman had nothing to do with the sprinkler system being turned as people demonstrated outside his Vista office. The late morning lawn watering was a violation of Vista Irrigation District drought response rules.
