With District 6 Congressman John Delaney telling the Sun he is considering a race for Governor and Delegate Bill Frick (D-16) starting a Congressional campaign account, the chatter around CD6 is picking up. And that chatter is going to reach a fever pitch at the end of the month.
That’s because the Western Maryland Democratic PAC is holding a “summit” event in Flintstone on April 28 and 29. The event (which requires registration) is described as “charting a progressive course in Western Maryland.” And top billing in the email announcement goes to two familiar names: Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Total Wine co-owner David Trone.
Kamenetz, of course, is running for Governor. But what of Trone? His website says he is considering a run for Montgomery County Executive. But his attendance at the Western Maryland event (and the money he must have contributed to be listed as a “Presenting Sponsor”) suggests that he is keeping a CD6 option open. Trone’s self-funding capacity allows him significant timetable flexibility.
But that’s not all. The solicitation states that Delegate Frick and Senator Roger Manno (D-19) will also be attending. Manno is a labor favorite and is known to be interested in the CD6 seat.
Congratulations to the Western Maryland Democratic PAC for setting up such a juicy event. Get your tickets here, folks!
