Blue Wave Sends Top Republican Fleeing The Trump Sinking Ship As Rep. Ed Royce Retires House Foreign Affairs Committee Chair Ed Royce won't seek re-election

Royce's decision to not seek another term in November stunned Republican leaders on Monday.

"I really believe he ... cared", said Johnson, a Republican.

In 2011, Issa said President Trump "may or may not" be right about Obama's birth certificate.

The 64-year-old, nine-term congressman did not immediately say why he won't run for Congress later this year or what he plans to do next. He presided over contentious hearings into the attack on the USA embassy in Benghazi, Libya, and on the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative groups.

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. With Democrats needing just two more seats to make of NY the majority leader, GOP Sens. of Arizona and of Tennessee have stepped away from the fight.

Nonpartisan election handicapper Crystal Ball, which is led by Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia Center for Politics, revised the rating for California's 39th Congressional District following Royce's announcement. Royce is also from California.

Those activists have protested weekly outside Issa's Vista, California, district office - leading to a odd scene in May in which Issa stood on his rooftop, looking down at the protesters below.

Before Chávez announced, Brady wrote: "My short list of potential candidates would include: County Supervisor Kristin Gaspar, Assemblyman Rocky Chávez, County Supervisor Bill Horn, Escondido Mayor Sam Abed, Vista Councilmember Amanda Rigby, Vista Deputy Mayor John Franklin, Vista Mayor Judy Ritter, Carlsbad Mayor Matt Hall, Assemblyman Bill Brough, State Senator Pat Bates, and maybe Aliso Viejo Mayor Mike Munzing".

Whether Issa's seat flips remains to be seen: although Hillary Clinton carried the district in the 2016 presidential elections, Inside Elections on Wednesday called the race for Issa's seat a toss-up.

That may not sound so bad for Republicans, considering there are now 23 GOP members in Clinton districts. Levin, an energy attorney, and real estate businessman Paul Kerr, and Sara Jacobs, the head of an worldwide non-profit, are also running as Democrats and had so far campaigned not so much against each other but rather against Issa.

The top two candidates in the June 5 primary will face each other in the general election where, besides their representatives in the House, California voters will consider up-ticket races for governor and the United States Senate.

"We look forward to facing whoever limps out of the Democrats" battle royale: black and blue, and broke, ' said Rep. Steve Stivers, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee. That's twice the number of departing House Democrats - presenting a major opportunity for a minority party that needs 24 more seats to snatch back the speaker's gavel for.
