Rep. Darrell Issa surprises with plans to not seek re-election

Rep. Darrell Issa surprises with plans to not seek re-election Rep. Darrell Issa surprises with plans to not seek re-election

And more are coming.

Republican Assemblyman Rocky Chavez, who represents the 76th District, immediately announced his plan to run for Issa's seat, as did former Assemblywoman Diane Harkey, who is also a Republican and now a member of the state Board of Equalization.

History is not on the side of Republicans, but they still have some structural advantages that give them hope.

Democrats need to win 24 GOP-controlled seats to win control of the chamber and are looking to California to help them get there. In 2016, Democrat Hillary Clinton carried the district by almost double-digits. The dark blue columns, though, are also interesting: Those are races in which the district backed the presidential candidate of the retiree - but then flipped parties in the House race.

He is the second top Republican lawmaker in the Congress to have announced his retirement, which some media outlets said is an indication of a Democratic wave for the upcoming November mid-term election. "It is not missed by anyone that the president's numbers are lower than other first-year presidents".

"There is a structure there that may withstand no matter what, but the atmospherics have a caution light", he said. Col. Doug Applegate. In the 2016 presidential race, the 49th Congressional District, where Issa serves, also voted for Hillary Clinton by seven percentage points. Educated, affluent districts in the suburbs will be the battle zones of 2018.

U.S. Representative Darrell Issa, who headed a House of Representatives Oversight Committee investigation of American deaths in Benghazi, Libya, that found no wrongdoing, said on Wednesday he would not seek re-election in November. Lewis said. "Or is that impossible to avoid right now?"

Since 1962, the midterm losses for the president's party have averaged 40 seats when the president's approval rating is under 50 percent.

Rohrabacher also met previous year with far-right French presidential candidate Marine LePen, whose candidacy was strongly pushed by Russian government-linked disinformation efforts, and with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who remains holed up at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London. Reps. Ed Royce of California, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida and Dave Reichert of Washington state have all declined re-election bids, and a fifth, Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.), is vacating her Arizona House seat for a district that Clinton carried, in order to run for Senate.

Some of Trump's policies are making it hard for incumbents as well. The most likely scenario is Trump would not campaign across the country for a large number of candidates, but would make appearances in a few key districts where his popularity is higher than it is nationally.

At least 29 House seats now held by Republicans will be open in November; only 22 GOP seats were open in 2006, and 19 Democratic seats in 2010.

In 2006, according to his biography, Royce managed legislation on the House floor to pass the historic U.S. -India Civil Nuclear Cooperation Agreement. Not only was Issa a nine-term incumbent but as one of the richest members of Congress, he was able to self-fund his campaign.

In his five years as committee chair, Royce has differentiated himself from his predecessor, Rep.

Other Republicans who aren't running for re-election include Pennsylvania Rep. Bill Shuster, the chairman of the House Transportation Committee; Texas Rep. Joe Barton, the former chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce committee; Texas Rep. Jeb Hensarling, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee and Virginia Rep. They both represent parts of Orange County, the once deep-red bastion of suburban conservatism that has undergone a transformation in recent years. So far, they do not have results to match their words.

"There's no question that this is a referendum on Republican control and Republican policymaking", Lapp said. As Sean McElwee recently noted at The Outline, a majority of both college educated and non-college educated white people - voting blocks Democrats have been trying to court in recent months - support progressive economic policies, including a millionaires tax, more banking regulations, and increased health care spending.

With four Democrats running for the same seat, Rep. Steve Stivers (R-Ohio), chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), predicted that the district will have "one of the bloodiest primaries in America".
