    Gary Miller has decided to not run for reelection in the hardest-to-defend GOP seat in the country, sources have confirmed. That doesn't mean Democrats will have a walk, and more analysis will be coming shortly.

    Redlands mayor Pete Aguilar came close but just short of the endorsement recommendation at the California Democratic Party's regional caucuses on the February 8-9 weekend, while Eloise Gomez Reyes posted strong fundraising numbers, fueled by the support of EMILY's list.

    Possible Republican candidates include businessman Paul Chabot, currently running for AD40, Fontana mayor Acquanetta Warren and San Bernardino councilmember John Valdivia.
