Schiff is entering 2020 with more than $8.1 million in cash on hand, a substantial figure for a House member in an election year. Schiff’s race is not particularly competitive; he won reelection in 2018 with nearly 80 percent of the vote in California’s 28th Congressional District.

The California Democrat has won plaudits from members of his own party for his handling of the House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment investigation. He also impressed members of both parties as Democrats’ lead impeachment manager in the Senate.

Schiff’s increased profile during the impeachment proceedings seems to be linked to a spike in donations; his fourth-quarter haul is more than double what he raised in the second and third quarters, when he raked in just over $1 million during each three-month stretch. 

The lawmaker’s rise has sparked speculation among Schiff’s colleagues about his future ambitions, with some indicating he could one day run for Senate or House Speaker.
