Andy Harris, MD-01
Democrats' not-so-secret antipathy toward Harris, whom they see as an ideologue and an interloper on the Eastern Shore, will surely play a role in their new Maryland map. The smart bet is that Democrats will redraw the non-Eastern Shore half of the 1st CD to include many more Democrats, in cities such as Aberdeen and Annapolis. At a minimum, they could draw the Baltimore-based Harris, a Republican freshman, far out of the 1st CD. They also hope to smooth the road for Eastern Shore Democrat Frank Kratovil to come back to Congress.
