It appears the end is near for Adam Schiff.
12 Democrats have joined together and are making a move to replace him.
And now he’s being forced to leave the House of Representatives.
Adam Schiff took a massive risk when he decided to abandon his Congressional seat and jump into the race for United States Senate.
And while the race has yet to play out, the reality for Schiff is becoming clear as candidates are lining up for his seat in the House.
16 candidates, 12 of whom are Democrats, have filed to run for Schiff’s Congressional seat.
According to the Los Angeles Daily News, “A field of 16 candidates has filed to succeed Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Burbank, the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk announced today.”
“The field in the predominantly Democratic 30th Congressional District consists of 12 Democrats, two Republicans, one Peace & Freedom Party candidate and one with no party preference.”
“Democrats who filed by Thursday’s deadline include former Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer; state Sen. Anthony Portantino, D-La Cañada Flintridge; Assemblywoman Laura Friedman, D-Glendale; Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education member Nick Melvoin; West Hollywood Mayor Sepi Shyne; Dr. Jirair Ratevosian, a former State Department official; and actor Ben Savage.”
If Schiff changes his mind about running for U.S. Senate and decides he wants to come back and run for the House again, he’s now got a massive field of ambitious Democrats to deal with.
In the past, he was able to simply cruise to the nomination with little or no competition, but not anymore.
The article continues, “Schiff has not made an endorsement. He is running for the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by the late Dianne Feinstein after being a member of the House since defeating then-Rep. Jim Rogan, R-Glendale, in 2000.”
Perhaps the reason he hasn’t made an endorsement is because reality is starting to sink in.
Schiff was blinded by his ambition and decided to run for U.S. Senate to advance his political career.
But, in the process, he had to give up the one sure thing he had – his seat in the House.
Republicans and conservatives will surely be thrilled if Schiff ends up out of Congress, as he’s long had a history of lying about Republicans.
And that possibility is looking more and more likely as candidates jump into the race to replace Schiff in the House.
