Clarifying the California Chess Board

January 12, 2012
Democrats are trying to use the three California retirements, as well as news that a few other Republicans around the country will step down, to bolster their claims that the House is in play. And they're likely to get another bit of good news when Rep. David Dreier announces his intentions. Dreier, the chairman of the House Rules Committee, found himself drawn into a Democratic-leaning seat east of Los Angeles. He hasn't made public his intentions, but several sources on and off Capitol Hill say he has told Republican allies that he's unlikely to run again. Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the House Majority Whip, floated the prospect that Dreier could run against Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein this year, though that seems unlikely. Dreier has not put a timeline on a decision, or an eventual announcement. Redistricting always takes a toll on a few entrenched members. This year, it's California's turn to take the brunt of it, and -- if Dreier retires -- it'll cost the state's GOP delegation more than a century in combined House seniority.
