Sixth District GOP Hopefuls Square Off In Debate

February 27th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

National issues were brought down to the local level Thursday night, as Washington County voters got a chance to hear from the field of Republicans looking to unseat Democratic U.S. Rep. John Delaney in the 6th Congressional District. Seven of the eight candidates running for the GOP nomination in the April 26 primary were in attendance at the Funkstown American Legion for a lively debate on a wide array of topics, including national security, immigration reform and the economy. Candidates in attendance included Washington County Commissioner Terry L. Baker, Scott Cheng, Robin Ficker, Amie Hoeber, Frank Howard, Christopher James Mason and Frederick County Del. David E. Vogt III. Although confirmed, Harold Painter was absent. One of the largest and most gerrymandered districts in the entire nation, Maryland's 6th District covers all of Garrett, Allegany and Washington counties, as well as portions of Frederick and Montgomery counties.
