Rep. Gary Miller (R-Calif.) announced Wednesday that he would not seek reelection to Congress at the end of his term.

“It has been a great honor to spend so many years in public service, striving to make a difference for Southern California families. While there is still a lot of work to be done, it is now time for me to pass the baton. I will not seek re-election to Congress at the end of this term," he said in a statement. "While family circumstances dictate that I must leave this great institution at the end of this session of Congress, I am committed to serving out my term with the same energy and enthusiasm that I have always brought to the debate."

Miller was first elected to Congress in 1998.

Democrats saw Miller as one of the most vulnerable House members in the 2014 election, representing a heavily Latino district won by President Barack Obama.
