Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-Alpine) says he will repay $49,000 back to his campaign after months of revelations that he used the fund for personal expenses.

The congressman announced the repayment to the Press-Enterprise on Thursday.

“While the charges were primarily authorized by the campaign, the buck stops with me and I take full responsibility — including the responsibility to determine and implement other structural changes to ensure errors are not repeated,” he told the newspaper. “In taking these steps, I am fully confident that the right oversight and controls are now in place.”

Hunter's opponent for the 50th District seat in San Diego County, Democrat Patrick Malloy, told the Press-Enterprise the repayment will not repair Hunter's reputation.
