CA-31/45: Gary Miller Staying Put
I suppose California politics leads to all sorts of speculation but Republican congressman Gary Miller wasn't going to move to Orange County to run in CA-45. He confirmed it. Last year Miller had a choice to either run in a district against fellow incumbent Ed Royce or run in a nearby district, where he had a home, where no Republican was running. He chose the latter. If he ran in CA-45 this time, he also wouldn't be challenging a sitting Republican, but he'd be moving a lot further, into an area he has no ties, and he'd be abandoning a district the GOP wants to retain. He could still retire, but he isn't running elsewhere.
