The new Ohio congressional map significantly changed the Cleveland suburban area. Originally, former White House aide Max Miller (R), who had raised over $1.6 million with almost $1 million cash-on-hand through September 30th for his intra-party challenge campaign has seen his political fortunes materially change.
Mr. Miller originally filed against Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R-Rocky River) in the suburban 16th CD, which is safely Republican. When Rep. Gonzalez announced his retirement, Miller found himself in an open Republican seat. Once the new map was drawn, however, the 16th was collapsed as Ohio lost a seat in reapportionment. In its place is a marginal 13th District west of Cleveland that is a D+1 toss-up district. Over the weekend, Mr. Miller announced that he will run in this district. The general election will be hotly contested.
