The retirement of Royce, who represents a Southern California suburban district that Hillary Clinton won by 9 percentage points in 2016, presents Democrats with just the kind of opportunity they had been hoping to seize.
Issa's retirement is a major blow to House Republicans in a district that analysts had considered a toss-up. He once served as chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and led investigations of the IRS and its treatment of conservative groups and Benghazi.

But Issa faced his stiffest competition previous year, narrowly defeating challenger Doug Applegate, a Democrat based out of San Clemente.
Royce says he plans to stay in California after he retires."Orange County will always be home to Marie and me, and we look forward to being with all our friends at Lunar New Years, Korean American Days, Fourth of Julys, and many other community events for years to come". Just like a growing batch of Republicans.

The state allows the top two vote-getters - regardless of party affiliation - to advance to the general election. The district also houses Camp Pendleton.
Royce and Issa represent prime examples of Republican incumbents in the line of fire.
But Democrats were gleeful over the retirements and what it could mean in reaching the 24 GOP-held seats they need to win in order to take control of the House. Associated Press Writer Jonathan J. Cooper in Sacramento contributed.
