Joshua Miller covers House and Senate campaigns and elections for Roll Call, focusing on races in the southeastern states, New York and Massachusetts. He came to the newspaper after two years at ABC News, where he was a producer at the Sunday public-affairs program "This Week." He began his career in Washington, D.C., as an intern at the Atlantic. A native New Englander, Joshua grew up in Massachusetts and received his B.A. from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine.
Miller no longer works for Roll Call.
Growing up, Rep. Greg Walden was a Boy Scout.
House Republicans tapped Oregon Rep. Greg Walden as the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee for the 2014 cycle. Walden, who ran unopposed, succeeds Texas Rep. Pete Sessions, who oversaw two successful cycles, in which Republicans won and held the chamber.
Rep. Allen B. West, R-Fla., who trails his Democratic opponent with 100 percent of precincts reporting, went to court Tuesday, asking a judge to order a recount of all early votes in St. Lucie County, one of three counties in the reconfigured 18th district.
Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry has long been floated as a potential pick for President Barack Obama’s second secretary of State. The Washington Post recently floated him as in the running for secretary of Defense as well.
Oregon Rep. Greg Walden today wrote to his Republican colleagues, asking for their support in his unopposed bid for the chairmanship of the National Republican Congressional Committee.
Election night wasn’t kind to North Carolina Democrats. President Barack Obama lost the state to Mitt Romney. The governor’s mansion flipped to GOP control — marking the first time since Reconstruction that the party will control all three branches of state government. And at least three Democratic House members are going to be replaced by Republicans in the 113th Congress.
Florida Republican Rep. Allen B. West, the leading firebrand of the freshman class of 2010, won’t go quietly, if he goes at all.
The 113th Congress isn’t set yet. The winners in six House races remain unclear.
Firebrand Rep. Allen West (R) may narrowly lose his re-election bid, burned by his own hot rhetoric — which his opponent turned against him — and burdened by GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s weaker-than-expected showing in Florida.
Razor-thin margins mean more than a handful of House races might not produce a winner today — or this week. There are still several races in Californiathathave yet to be called by the Associated Press. Here are the races outside the Golden State that remained too close to call as of this morning.
House Republicans and Democrats both found reasons to celebrate Tuesday night, knowing this much about the 2012 elections: It could have been worse.
It’s been two tough cycles for conservative Blue Dog Democrats, but amidst the dark clouds — three caucus members lost — there were some very bright spots for the battered breed on Election Day.
Written off by both parties, buffeted by a tornado of innuendo about his in-laws’ offshore gambling operation and hammered by millions of dollars of outside spending from Republican groups, Democratic Rep. John Tierney defied the odds and won a tight re-election victory Tuesday night in Massachusetts’ 6th district.
It was ugly. It was expensive. It was physical. And now it’s over.
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D), a crafty politician and tireless campaigner, won re-election tonight, beating Republican Rep. Todd Akin.
Georgia Democratic Rep. John Barrow proved tonight he is the survivor’s survivor.
North Carolina Democrats are having a very, very bad night.Running in a redrawn Congressional map favoring the GOP, at least three Democratic Congressmen will not be coming back to Capitol Hill. The only bright spot for Democrats: Rep. Mike McIntyre’s race remained too close for the Associated Press to call as of 10:10 p.m.
Lightning didn’t strike twice in Massachusetts for Sen. Scott Brown (R).
Popular former Maine Gov. Angus King (I) tonight comfortably won the Pine Tree State’s open Senate seat, currently held by moderate Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe, who is retiring.
Kentucky Rep. Ben Chandler, a conservative Blue Dog Democrat, lost tonight to Lexington attorney Andy Barr (R).
Voters will make their voices heard today, but there won’t be much harmony. At the end of a long and bitter campaign season, a dissonant electorate is likely to deliver a split decision that does little beyond endorse divided ends of Pennsylvania Avenue.
Sen. Scott Brown (R) led Democrat Elizabeth Warren by 1 point among likely voters in a new poll, casting drops of doubt on the conventional wisdom that Warren had pulled into a comfortable and nearly insurmountable lead in the weeks before Election Day.
Former president Bill Clinton has recorded at least 45 robocalls for House Democratic candidates to use in the final days of their campaigns.
Democrat Shelley Adler has pulled a radio spot that compared Rep. Jon Runyan (R-N.J.) to deadly Hurricane Sandy.
Republican Rep. Scott DesJarlais is in trouble. Big trouble. Whether that trouble catches up with the freshman Member, a physician, on Tuesday or whether it’s his undoing during the 2014 primary season, he’s unlikely to make a career of being a Congressman in Tennessee’s conservative 4th district.
