Posted on 06/20/2007 8:50:49 PM PDT by Abby4116
A veteran Maryland Congressman has filed the paperwork to run for a tenth term.
Wayne Gilchrest represents the first congressional district which includes all of the Eastern Shore and parts of Baltimore, Harford and Anne Arundel Counties.
Gilchrest tells WBAL News he wants to help clean up the Chesapeake Bay, fight tax hikes, and enact tougher border security legislation in his new term.
Earlier this year Gilchrest was one of two Republicans who voted with Democrats to tie funding for the Iraq War to a troop withdrawal.
Baltimore County State Senator Andy Harris is raising money to launch a Primary Election campaign opposed to Gilchrest's stand on Iraq.

ACK — I’ve lived on DelMarVa too long, I remember when he first ran, I was working at a radio station in Caroline County.........
Just when you thought it was safe to swim in the Chesapeake Bay... He’s baaa-aack.
HARRIS FOR CONGRESS!
please let him have a primary opponent.
I believe he will - Harris!
Someone needs to take down this RINO.
A good conservative candidate, inside or outside the GOP, would be very good.
We could stand to lose this guy.
Of course, next to other Maryland politicians e.g., Mikulski, Sarbanes, etc. etc. he looks like a mad dog right winger.
Hope Any Harris runs and wins.
Any s/b Andy
Where has he been all these years? Shouldn't this have been accomplished already? Not just a RINO, he's a failure!
