Senator Chuck Schumer is about to embark on one of the worst of missions: the search for a new roommate, following the announced retirement of California Rep. George Miller.

“Seeking roommate. 20 terms in the House & unmatched legislative record preferred. Lover of cold cereal a must,” tweeted Mr. Schumer, who for years has shared a fraternity-esque Capitol Hill rowhouse with fellow lawmakers, including Mr. Miller and Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin.

The house, which has been dubbed “Animal House” and has been the subject of numerous news stories, also serves as inspiration for the Amazon show Alpha House.

Mr. Schumer’s followers already had some suggestions, suggesting he check out the online classifieds site Craigslist–where he had some luck.

“Alpha House might have a spot… ;),” tweeted the company’s founder, Craig Newmark.
