  •  He's not better than Gilchrest (9+ / 0-)

    who was the previous Republican rep from this district, and I would not have been surprised to see Gilchrest support the legislation.

    However, Kratovil is a damned sight better than the absolute lunatic Andy Harris who was his opponent and who will likely be his opponent again. We do.not.want Dr. Andrew Harris in that seat. Period.

    Your points about the district are very well taken. I live in MD-03 but have to spend a fair amount of time in Harford County. It is outrageously, frighteningly conservative.

    We as Dems do well to have Kratovil in that seat, even if he doesn't toe the party line (and what the hell is the party line, anyhow?) MD-01 was designed to be a Republican seat; that we won it at all speaks to the lunacy that is the current Republican party. But even with that our hold on that seat is very tenuous at best.

    All politics is local. This is a good example.
