Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been living in Maryland for two decades, according to new reports.
Mortgage records show his Maryland home as his primary resident, though he also reports a California condo as a primary residence.

"Schiff did not take an exemption on his Maryland home, the outlet reported. However, he reportedly signed documents stating both his Maryland and California properties were primary residences," the Daily Caller reported.
"A spokesperson for Schiff, Marisol Samayoa, claims the congressman’s primary residence is in California," it continued.

“Adam’s primary residence is Burbank, California, and will remain so when he wins the Senate seat,” Samayoa told CNN.
“As Adam has discussed openly many times over the years, including in his recent New York Times best-selling book, he and Eve made the difficult decision to move their family to the D.C. area to spend more time with his children while doing his job," he stated.
Schiff is currently running for the California Senate, hoping to win the seat long held by recently passed Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
The report of his primary residence in Maryland, however, may not help as he seeks an advantage over both fellow Democratic challengers and GOP threats in California.
The news also comes as the senator appointed to temporarily fill Feinstein's seat also reportedly lives in Maryland, adding even more concerns for California Democrats.
The odd living situation has been taking place long-term for Schiff, who now has a lot of explaining to do for those in his district he has served while living on the opposite side of the country.
