Frank Howard, a Republican who ran for State Senate in 2014 in LD14, has filed to run for Congress in CD6 in 2016. John Fritze:
A Laytonsville man who worked for Dan Bongino‚Äôs congressional campaign in 2014 has filed to run against Democratic Rep. John Delaney in Maryland‚Äôs 6th Congressional District.
Frank Howard, 54, served as campaign chairman to Republican Dan Bongino, who challenged Delaney in 2014. Howard also ran an unsuccessful campaign for state Senate that year, despite picking up several notable endorsements.
“People feel the need for positive change in Annapolis and Washington,” Howard said in a statement. “I‚Äôm an independent-minded outsider who wants to represent them.”
Howard, a co-owner of the Utah-based business development consulting firm Shipley Associates, served in the Air Force for four years. He will face a Republican state lawmaker and Marine veteran, David E. Vogt III, in the primary.
Howard and Vogt (and maybe others?) will be vying for the right to face Congressman John Delaney. Unless Delaney runs for Senate. Which he has considered. Which would create a mad scramble among many candidates for the rig to succeed Delaney on the Democratic side. But I digress. For now. Maybe.
