House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes of California has received a Democratic challenger in his re-election bid next year.

Fresno County Deputy District Attorney Andrew Janz, who works in the violent crimes unit, slammed the eight-term Republican's handling of the probe on the Trump campaign's ties to Russia.

"The congressman is more concerned with defending himself, defending the president, Donald Trump, against all these allegations," Janz told The Los Angeles Times on Tuesday.

"I have a strong connection to the area," he added. "I think I can be a competitive candidate, I think I have a pull here on what people think is important."

Nunes has garnered more than two-thirds of the vote in all but one of his House elections, the Times reports. In 2016, he beat Democrat Louie Campos with 68.2 percent of the vote.

"The bottom line is that the people are frustrated with their representative and they really just want to be heard," he said. "Their feeling right now is that they’re being ignored by their congressman."
