Royce camp: GOP Rep. never filed to run in wrong district
The re-election campaign of Rep. Ed Royce, California Republican, is pushing back on a report from the Sacramento Bee that Mr. Royce filed to run for re-election in the wrong congressional district last week.
The Bee reported the Mr. Royce filed a statement of candidacy that listed the 40th Congressional District — one that he represented during the 2000s — instead of the current, redrawn 39th he’s represented since 2012.
But Mr. Royce’s campaign on Monday called the report “erroneous,” said that it’s not even possible to file an official declaration of candidacy in California until Feb. 10, 2014, and that the paperwork the newspaper refers to is unrelated to a candidate’s filing for office.
“The document mentioned was not, and could not be, an official declaration of candidacy but was instead a routine, financial disclosure statement for a fundraising committee based in Virginia in which a staff member made a typographical error,” the campaign said in a statement. “Representative Royce looks forward to filing his official declaration of candidacy in the 39th district.”
