Who Is Ed Royce? Republican California Representative Resigns

Ed Royce chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee has announced that he won't run a campaign for re-election in November

Democrat Shelly Simonds reacts to the news that she won the 94th District precincts by one vote after previously trailing incumbent David Yancey by ten votes post-election, following a recount Tuesday, Dec. 19, 2017, in Hampton, Va.

Royce's decision to not seek another term in November stunned Republican leaders on Monday. "Yeah, I enjoy the job I'm doing", he said then.

Congressman Darrell Issa is the author of the "Protect and Grow American Jobs Act", which is seen by Indian IT companies as a business killer.

Perhaps best known as a leading conservative critic of President Obama and Hillary Clinton, Issa led the "Fast and Furious" investigation while head of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. He presided over contentious hearings into the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya, and on the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative groups.

The second richest members of Congress is calling it quits, as California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa announced his retirement on Wednesday.

Royce, who has represented his Orange County congressional district since 1993, is serving his a year ago as head of the influential committee under the term limits for chairmanships adopted by the House Republican caucus.

The report states that Republicans could still win the district if Democrats split the vote, but the report states that it would require "a very elaborate set of circumstances".

Trump announces tax and regulation cuts for United States farmers
It's under negotiation as we speak", Trump said. " In every decision we make, we are honoring America's proud farming legacy ". The NAACP is urging people to wear white and hold anti-Trump signs on Monday for President Donald Trump's visit to Atlanta.

Issa has been the representative of the 49th District since 2003.

For almost a year, hundreds of activists with Indivisible San Diego have gathered outside Issa's office in Vista, California on a weekly basis to protest against the congressman.

Along with Nelson, other Republicans whose names have been floated as potential candidates include former Assemblywoman Ling Ling Chang, former Orange County GOP chairman Scott Baugh, former state senator Bob Huff and Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel. In the 2016 election, Issa won by a margin of less than 1 percentage point.

Jacobs has been endorsed by EMILY's List; Navy veteran Paul Kerr; and environmental attorney Mike Levin.

California holds a jungle primary, which means the top two finishers - regardless of party - advance to the general election.

Demographic changes - especially the drift of college-age and female voters to the Democrats - have undone some of that geographical advantage, but Republicans remain cautiously optimistic that they can hang onto power. 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.

Royce says he plans to stay in California after he retires."Orange County will always be home to Marie and me, and we look forward to being with all our friends at Lunar New Years, Korean American Days, Fourth of Julys, and many other community events for years to come".
