Challenging District 15 Democratic representatives Margarette Leach, Kevin Craig, and Jim Morgan, Miller placed in the four-way three-selectee 2004 Republican primary, but lost the six-way three-position general election on November 2, 2004 (all the incumbents were re-elected).
Challenging the incumbents again, Miller placed in the six-way three-selectee 2006 Republican primary and was elected in the six-way three-position general election on November 7, 2006, unseating Leach. Incumbent Democratic representatives Craig and Morgan were re-elected.
Miller placed first in the three-way Republican primary on May 13, 2008, with 2,116 votes (43.8%). She then placed third in the six-way three-position general election on November 4, 2008, with 8,163 votes (18.2%) behind incumbent representatives Craig and Morgan and ahead of non-selectee candidates Democrat Carl Eastham, and Republicans James Carden and Paula Stewart.
Miller placed first in the three-way Republican primary on May 11, 2010, with 1,505 votes (44.4%).

Many polling outlets considered this race to be a Lean Republican or a tossup. But on November 6, 2018, Miller defeated Ojeda, receiving 56.4% of the vote. Miller won all but 2 counties in the district. Upon election, Miller became the first woman to represent West Virginia's 3rd congressional district and the only Republican woman to be elected to an open seat in 2018.
