2014 CA-31: Pete Aguilar (D) v Paul Chabot (R)

This WaPo article is a few days old but definitely worth mentioning.


Rep. Gary Miller (R-Calif.) will not seek reelection in 2014, he announced Wednesday.





"While there is still a lot of work to be done, it is now time for me to pass the baton," Miller said in a statement. "I will not seek re-election to Congress at the end of this term."





Miller is generally acknowledged to be the most vulnerable member of the House. Redistricting made his district Democratic-leaning, and it went for President Obama by 16 points in 2012. Miller survived, though, by facing another Republicans in the general election under California's unusual top-two primary system.








Several Democrats are running for the seat, including former congressman Joe Baca, Redlands Mayor Pete Aguilar — a favorite of national Democrats — and Eloise Gomez Reyes, who has the backing of the Democratic women's group Emily's List.

Aguilar is a good candidate. He was supposed to win this seat last year but Miller held on in a fluke because a second Republican advanced to the "top 2" general election. It looks possible that the opposite situation could happen this year in that two Democrats might advance to the general instead. The winner will be either Aguilar or Reyes. Joe Baca is running a pitiful campaign in his attempt to return to Congress, and no strong Republicans are trying to take Miller's spot because it would be an uphill climb in such a strong Obama district.

The top two finishers in California's jungle primary held June 3 appear to be Paul Chabot (R) and Pete Aguilar (D). I'll try to remember to check later to see if Lesli Gooch still finished in 3rd place.





Congressional District 31


Paul Chabot (Party Preference: REP).............14,163....26.6%


Pete Aguilar (Party Preference: DEM)..............9,242....17.4%
