Darrell Issa to challenge Duncan Hunter for House seat in 2020
Former Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) will challenge Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) for his House seat in 2020, according to two sources familiar with his plans.Issa is expected to announce his campaign at a press conference in El Cajon, just east of San Diego, on Thursday. Issa previously represented California 49th District in the House, but announced last year that he would not seek reelection. Democrat Mike Levin won the election to replace Issa in November.Hunter currently represents the nearby 50th District. But his political career has been thrown into turmoil by a federal indictment on charges including campaign finance violations and wire fraud.
You don't have to wait to try, provided you're an Angeleno. Bird's sub-brand Scoot has electric mopeds in Los Angeles as part of a pilot program. It's only a single-seater versus the two-seat Bird Cruiser, but the concept is otherwise the same -- it's a faster, more comfortable option for those who want to get around quickly and don't want to hop in a rideshare car. You can hail one from the Bird or Scoot apps, and it includes a helmet if you can't bring your own.
Unlike scooters and regular bikes, you need to be at least 18 years old and carry a valid driver's license to take one for a ride.
San Francisco grants Jump, Lime, Scoot and Spin e-scooter licenses
The relationship between San Franscico and sharable electric scooter programs has been contentious, with city authorities stepping in last year to regulate the services. Following the latest round of permit applications, the city has announced that four companies will be allowed to operate electric scooter programs for the next year: Jump, Lime, Scoot and Spin. San Francisco was the birthplace of the electric scooter, with Bird, Spin and Lime starting operations there last March. However, there were many objections to the scourge of scooters, including that discarded scooters blocked access for pedestrians and that people frequently rode them on pavements.
Scoot plans to make the mopeds available in other US cities before the end of 2019.
This isn't the first time Scoot has offered mopeds. There have been more conventional models in San Francisco since 2012, and in Barcelona as of May 2018. This is the first time Scoot has made use of a newer design, though, and it's apparent this rollout will be considerably more ambitious. Bird and Scoot aren't shy about wanting to undercut transportation heavyweights like Uber and Lyft, and it sees the moped as a key part of that strategy.,
