Liberal Rep Brad Miller announces retirement, blames redistricting

I’d say that we hate to see you go, but:

U.S. Rep. Brad Miller will not run for another term in Congress, he said in a statement released to his supporters early Thursday.

Miller, who has served North Carolina in Washington since 2002, said the Republican-controlled legislature “dismantled” the 13th district when they redrew voting maps in July.
