Candidate claims beating was politically motivated

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - Police are searching for two suspects who beat up a candidate for the Sweetwater school outside of a Jack in the Box restaurant.

Andrew Valencia was attacked early Sunday morning, outside a jack in the box, in Imperial Beach.

He says he was out distributing campaign signs, when he was physically assaulted so bad that his lip got stuck between his teeth.

His injuries are now clearly visible, and he says the attack may have been politically motivated.

Deputies are hoping surveillance video will help them identify Valencia's attackers.

They're described as two men, wearing hoodies, standing five feet, eight inches tall, with an average build.

If you have any information, call police.
