Congressmen Reelected Over Local Candidates

While the nation is focused on the Presidential Race between Trump vs. Biden, there are some local races on the ballots that involve local candidates, mostly Congressional races.

All Congressmembers in Maryland were re-elected on Tuesday night. Here is a quick look at those races:

1st District

Republican Congressman Andy Harris defeated Democratic challenger Mia Mason by a margin of 64.5 to 35.3 percent.
Harris is the only Republican Congressman in Maryland. The 1st District covers Perry Hall, Kingsville and northern Baltimore County, along with the entire Eastern Shore.

2nd District
Democratic Congressman C.A. “Dutch” Ruppersberger defeated GOP state Senator Johnny Ray Salling by 67.7 to 32.1 percent. Salling represents Dundalk, Essex, Middle River, Rosedale and Edgemere. The 2nd District covers those areas, but extends into portions of Harford County, Anne Arundel County, Baltimore City and a small portion of Howard County.

7th District

Middle River resident Kim Klacik was the Republican darling as she challenged Democratic Congressman Kweisi Mfume. Her campaign came to an end with a 73 to 26.7 percent defeated to Mfume. Klacik raised an astounding $7 million in this contest and was endorsed by President Donald Trump.
