Three Democrats Vying for Rep. Harris' Seat
No Republicans have registered to run against the congressman in the primary election.
While Rep. Andy Harris will likely run unopposed in April's primary election, at least three Democrats are vying to oppose him in November.
Wendy Rosen of Cockeysville, John LaFerla of Chestertown and Kim Letke of Joppa have each registered as candidates in Maryland's 1st District congressional race, The Daily Times reports. The district includes the entire Eastern Shore of Maryland, as well as parts of Anne Arundel, Baltimore and Harford counties.
Anticipated Democratic candidate, state Sen. Jim Mathias, however, said he does not plan to run, the article states.
Former Democratic congressman Frank Michael Kratovil Jr. had been considered a viable opponent to Harris in the 2012 election. Kratovil defeated Harris, then a state senator, to serve as a representative between 2009 and 2010. Harris defeated Kratovil in the 2010 election.
