For some, Trump’s decision to back Nunes was unsurprising.

“I don’t think it’s really a surprise, particularly for Nunes, given that he’s been so loyal to the president,” said Michael Evans, chairman of the Fresno County Democratic Party. “I think they would be viewing this as some sort of payback, but it does raise the question are they concerned about Devin Nunes election prospects this year.”

Vanderhoof addressed Republican concerns that a Democratic wave could take back the House in November’s midterm elections. 

“We can’t be complacent. We know the Democrats are targeting the house they want to take over the house and that is probably going to go through California is to succeed,” he said.

Nunes, who won reelection with 67 percent of the vote in 2016, faces a tough Democratic challenge from Fresno County Deputy District Attorney Andrew Janz.

Nunes has served as the representative from California’s 22nd District since 2013. He briefly led the House’s Russia investigation before recusing himself in 2017.
