Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on Friday that he’s unsure what will happen to the remaining residents of retiring Rep. George Miller’s house now that he’s planning to sell.
The California Democrat confirmed this week that he’s putting his Capitol Hill home on the market after purchasing it in 1974. The setting serves as the inspiration for the Amazon series “Alpha House” because it has also served as the D.C. home of Schumer and Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) dating back to their days in the House.
Schumer, at least, is not a potential buyer.
“I can’t afford it,” he said in a quick interview on other matters Friday. “I could have afforded it when he bought it in 1974. But I can’t now.”
Schumer said he isn’t sure what he and Durbin will do next. “We have to wait and see what’s going to happen with the house first,” he said.
