Lone House Committee Chairwoman to Retire
Rep. Candice S. Miller, R-Mich., the only woman to chair a House committee in the 114th Congress, will not seek a 9th term in her Detroit-area district, she announced Thursday.
“This is the community that I love, that I call home, and at the conclusion of my current term in office, I will be coming home. I will not seek re-election,” Miller announced in a video posted to Facebook.
First elected to Congress in 2002, Miller is one of just 22 women in the House GOP Caucus.
