Mr. Who-Will-Go-to-Washington

ROnly some of Bay Weekly’s readers will get to vote in Maryland’s biggest race. The gerrymandered First Congressional district somehow connects Smith Island to Baltimore County, encompassing the Eastern Shore, crossing the Susquehanna River, running west of I-95 to the Baltimore Beltway, leaping across the whole metropolis to land with one toe on the Pasadena peninsula, another on the Broadneck peninsula and a third in Severna Park, Severn, Crownsville and Odenton. Yet it’s a race that affects us all, in Chesapeake Country and throughout Maryland. In it, either Republican Andy Harris or Democrat Frank Kratovil will be elected successor to a Bay champion.
