The fundraising efforts of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) are once again under scrutiny as the chair of the House Intelligence Committee fights for political survival during the 2018 midterms.

The latest criticism came for Jim Reeves, who writes the “Alternating Currents” blog for the Visalia Times-Delta newspaper in the San Joaquin Valley.

Also of local note, Nunes’ hometown paper, the Fresno Bee, has supported him since his first run from Congress in 2002. This year, the Bee endorsed Nunes’ opponent, Andrew Janz.
