Rep. Gary Miller, R-Rancho Cucamonga, whose 31st Congressional District seat was considered the most vulnerable in the upcoming election, has formally handed the baton to candidate Paul Chabot, announcing his endorsement in a news release on Monday.
“Paul Chabot will win in November because he has the support of the voters who have seen firsthand his commitment to the entire region,” Miller says in the release issued by the Chabot campaign. “He has patrolled many of our cities for the last two decades as a reserve deputy sheriff. Paul owns a small business and raises his family here. He fought for us overseas in Iraq and will fight for us here at home. Paul understands what it takes to get our economy moving again, fix our broken education system, keep families safe and kids out of crime in the first place.”
Miller announced his decision to not seek a ninth term on Capitol Hill in February, after months of being targeted with protests urging him to change his stance on immigration reform.
Originally elected to a solidly Republican district, after redistricting following the 2010 Census, Miller found himself representing a Democratic-leaning district that had been handily won by President Barack Obama in the 2012 election.
