Former Donald Trump adviser Max Miller appeared to be on his way to Congress – but now he’s preparing for a much tougher race.
Miller will announce Friday night that he is running in a new district in northeast Ohio that is much more pro-democracy than the red-colored district he ran in before the state was redistributed. Under the new lines, Miller will compete for a swing district that includes the liberal Akron and will win in the 2022 midterm elections.
Miller, who has won Trump’s support, first brought a major lawsuit against GOP MP Anthony Gonzalez, one of 10 House Republicans who are voting for Trump’s impeachment for his role in the January 6th Capitol Uprising. But earlier that fall, Gonzalez announced his resignation, leaving his district wide open. Now in the new seat, Miller is almost certain that in a year when control of the House of Representatives is at stake, he will face competition from a Democratic candidate.
