It is Election Season again and the 2020 Presidential Primary is scheduled for Tuesday, April 28. While most will have their eyes on the race for the White House, there is a local Congressional race. 2nd District Democratic Congressman C.A. “Dutch” Ruppersberger is seeking his 10th term, but there is a battle on the Republican side to see who will face Ruppersberger in November.
On the GOP side, the candidates that have filed in the 2nd District are Scott M. Collier, Tim Fazenbaker, Rick Impallaria, Genevieve Morris, Johnny Ray Salling, Jim Simpson and Blaine Taylor. This race has prompted two candidates forums in eastern Baltimore County.
The first forum is called the Maryland Republican 2nd Congressional Candidate Forum and will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 26 at the North Point Edgemere Volunteer Fire Hall, 7500 North Point Road in Edgemere. The forum starts at 6:30 p.m. It will be hosted by the Roosevelt Republican Club. For more information on the event, go to their Facebook page
The second event is called the Republican 2nd Congressional District Forum and will take place on Thursday, March 5 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Essex Library. This event will be hosted by Maryland Young Republicans. For more information on the event, go to the Facebook page.
