Bongino Chooses Congress Candidacy

June 4th, 2013 by WCBC Radio

Former Secret Service agent Daniel Bongino says he will run for Congress, rather than seek the Republican nomination for Maryland governor. He announced his intentions Saturday at a convention of Young Maryland Republicans in Rockville. Bongino says he is eyeing the 6th District seat that Democratic Representative John Delaney won from former longtime Congressman Roscoe Bartlett last year. Bongino says he will formally announce his congressional bid June 18. He says Republicans should never have lost Bartlett’s  seat. He said he was confident he could have won the GOP's nomination for governor, but he said he decided against it, opting to run for a federal seat. While he describes himself as an “outside the box” republican, his recent addresses have sounded familiar republican party themes.
