Scott Turner, former NFL defensive back and punter, who played for the San Diego Chargers, has thrown his helmet into the race for the House seat vacated by the Crooked Duke. He has no political experience, unless one counts an unpaid internship in the summer of 2004 for Representative Duncan Hunter. He joins a very crowded field of fellow Republicans that already includes one incumbent (and termed-out) state Senator, a former state Assemblyman, a former Congressman (from a different district that included part of the current CA-50 before it was redistricted to make it safer for the Democrat who defeated him), and two wealthy businessmen with no political experience.
