Heather Mizeur, the Democratic nominee in Maryland’s First Congressional District, tonight thanked all the supporters who propelled her to the nomination to take on Rep. Andy Harris in November. With a number of mail-in votes still to be counted, Mizeur defeated primary opponent Dave Harden by a wide margin.
Mizeur said: “It’s been a very long road to get to this day. We launched this campaign nearly eighteen months ago, motivated by the desire to remove a traitor from Congress. Since then, while Andy Harris continued to disgrace himself and embarrass his constituents, I spent over a year traveling the district, listening to voters, and writing a comprehensive plan to get the First District economy back on track.”
“Being the nominee to represent this beautiful district is one of the greatest honors of my life,” Mizeur added. “Folks from the Eastern Shore, Harford and Baltimore counties deserve dignified leadership that turns down the partisan rhetoric and turns up the problem-solving, and with me, that’s what they’ll get.”
