VIDEO: Van Hollen And Delaney At Clinton Event

In the midst of a busy Sunday, I went to Nancy Floreen’s house in Garrett Park yesterday for an ice cream social and event for Hillary Clinton. Among others, Chris Van Hollen and John Delaney spoke, and I caught both speeches on video. If you’ve been missing seeing video on Maryland Scramble anywhere near as much as I’ve missed shooting… Read more »

2018: The Race For CD6

John Delaney was elected in 2012, knocking off Rob Garagiola, the heir apparent to the newly gerrymandered 6th Congressional District. Stretching from the farthest reaches of Western Maryland to some of the wealthiest areas of Potomac in Montgomery County, the district’s electorate is more than half Democratic and half MoCo. In 2012, Delaney burst the myth that you can’t get… Read more »

I Could Have Predicted This

In fact, I sort of did earlier today, when Lou Peck’s story about the GOP CD6 debate made clear that Brian Griffiths, one of the moderators for the debate, was smack in the middle of a dustup with one of the candidates, Amie Hoeber. But now it’s turned into a full blown war of words. I may disagree philosophically with… Read more »

CD6 GOP Debate

There was a debate last night, and sad to say, I wasn’t invited. Perhaps because it was a GOP debate in CD6. According to Lou Peck, it was a “lively affair,” and it turns out that blogger Ryan Miner has assumed responsibility for my job with the Democratic debates in CD8, shooting video of the entire debate. For those inclined to… Read more »

Trachtenberg Statement

From the (non)candidate herself: I certainly feel that the 6th congressional district could be better represented. However, I have not made a decision to run. The filing I made was to comply with FEC regulations and nothing more. I am no wallflower and if I made a decision to run for Congress, Rep. Delaney would know it. But that isn’t… Read more »

No, Trachtenberg Isn’t Running Against Delaney

Over the past several days, there have been several reports that former County Councilmember Duchy Trachtenberg has “launched” a primary campaign against Congressman John Delaney. There was a report on Daily Kos, citing this tweet, and then today local GOP blogger Ryan Miner reports the same thing, along with a laundry list of negative quotes and reports about Trachtenberg. All of the… Read more »

You Stay Classy, David Vogt

CD6 GOP congressional candidate Delegate David Vogt today issued a press release stating that he intends to file a bill in the General Assembly to investigate the tax exempt status of Muslim organizations that are linked directly or indirectly to “a radicalized notion of Islam.” If I was trying to find a way to have a law that simultaneously violates… Read more »

Republicans Ready To Rumble In CD6

My media crush Lou Peck over at Bethesda Magazine takes a look at the increasingly crowded and potentially expensive race on the GOP side competing for the right to face Congressman John Delaney in CD6. As Labor Day marks the ramping up of the 2016 campaign, it’s become clear that a second Montgomery County-based congressional district will face a crowded—and financially costly—contest… Read more »
