Delaney win “official”

November 7th, 2014 by WCBC Radio

Democratic Rep. John Delaney is the winner in Maryland's 6th Congressional District on Thursday night after election officials announced absentee ballot counts in four of the district's five counties.

The first-term congressman led Dan Bongino by 2,269 votes out of more than 184,000 cast after Allegany, Frederick, Garrett and Montgomery counties reported their canvass results. Washington County's results will be announced Friday, said Kaye Robucci, the county's elections director.

Thursday's vote tally boosted Delaney's lead from Tuesday's election by 103 votes and put victory beyond the reach of Bongino, a former Secret Service agent making his second run for public office. He was the unsuccessful Republican nominee for a Maryland U.S. Senate seat in 2012.

Delaney, a former financier from Montgomery County, also defeated Green Party candidate George Gluck.

The first-term congressman campaigned as a bipartisan moderate, citing his Partnership to Build America bill to rebuild America's roads and bridges through a public-private partnership.
