The New York Daily News explains:
Sen. Chuck Schumer needs a new roommate. Rep. George Miller (D-Calif.), 68, Schumer’s landlord and roommate for more than 31 years in a famously messy Capitol Hill rowhouse, announced he will retire this year. Schumer is one of the lawmakers who began renting rooms in the house in 1982, when Miller’s family moved back to California. The living situation inspired an Amazon Studio series, “Alpha House,” which made the lawmakers Republicans.
Two other House Democrats announced their retirements this week: Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) and Rep. Bill Owens (D-NY).
