California Republican Ed Royce not seeking re-election

California Republican Ed Royce not seeking re-election

"Throughout my service, I worked hard and never lost sight of the people our government is supposed to serve", he said in a statement issued in Washington, D.C. "With this in mind, and with the support of my wife Marie, I have decided not to seek reelection in November", said Royce.

Known as a fierce and fiery Republican, Issa became well-known after the 2008 general election, voicing opposition to many Obama administration policies.

State law dictates that tie races should be settled by drawing lots and so, earlier this month, the Virginia board of elections put both names in a decorative bowl and selected Yancey as the victor.

Rep. Darrell Issa joined fellow Southern California Republican Rep. Ed Royce on the GOP's retirement roster on Wednesday. That means two of the four competitive Orange County House races are guaranteed new faces next year.

Democrat Gil Cisneros' campaign sent out a statement in the wake of Royce's announcement claiming to have more than $1 million in hand and touting recent internal polling that showed he was statistically tied with Royce. They need to pick up this seat and several others in California to win nationally and overtake the Congress.

Yet another Republican Congressman announced on Monday that he would not seek reelection.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), a controversial GOPer inside and outside of his state who was considered one of 2018's most vulnerable Republican's up for re-election, has chose to call it quits.

But Democrat Doug Applegate, a retired Marine colonel, nearly beat Issa in the closest Congressional race of 2016, losing by six tenths of a percentage point.

Presidency: Trump Says He Would Beat Oprah Winfrey… But She Won't Run
Well they've readied her to run against Trump in 2020 and to fire that campaign up in about a year. "I like Oprah . The White House continued to field questions about a potential Winfrey candidacy Tuesday afternoon.

GOP Representative Ed Royce of California announced Monday he won't seek re-election after he finishes his 13th term in the House.

"In the 49th district, Democrats are locked in what is fast becoming one of the bloodiest primaries in America".

After Democrats flipped three other seats in special elections around Georgia, Republicans must be getting nervous. But he was facing an uphill battle in his re-election after defeating his Democratic challenger by less than a percentage point in 2016.

On the Senate side, Republicans have only eight seats at risk, while Democrats have 25 - ten of which represent states where Donald Trump won in 2016. His district includes portions of San Diego County, Oceanside, Vista, Carlsbad, and Encinitas.

In San Clemente, a hillside city overlooking the Pacific Ocean that was home to Richard Nixon's Western White House, voters greeted Issa's announcement with sadness or relief, reflecting the closely divided politics of the district.

According to the voter registration report, Republicans still hold the district at 37 percent, while Democrats are at 31 percent.

As much as I am looking forward to running one-on-one against @DarrellIssa later this year, it's best for the residents of the 49th Congressional District that he leave sooner rather than later.
