GOP State Delegate Launches in Maryland's Sixth District, Still To Be Redesigned

A representative of the Republican State of Washington County, Maryland, plans to hold a race in 2020 for the 6th congressional district, which still needs to be redesigned. Of the. Neil C. Parrott said Friday that he was forming an exploratory committee while he was weighing the decision. Parrott is the first person to announce a possible bid for the seat since federal judges rejected the current card on Wednesday and ordered political leaders to redraw her for the 2020 elections. The decision was made as a result. a lawsuit according to which the 6th district had been unconstitutionally confused at the expense of the Republicans following the 2010 census. The seat is currently occupied by the representative John Delaney, a Democrat who beat the outgoing republican representative Roscoe Bartlett in 2012, after proceeding to a new distribution of Democrats in the district. Delaney leaves Congress at the end of the year. On Tuesday, Democrat David Trone beat Republican Amie Hoeber by a wide margin to occupy the seat. Although most of the district is in western Maryland, Trone, Hoeber and Delaney all live in Montgomery County. Parrott said the court's decision and the Republicans losing control of the US House of Representatives Tuesday, "he felt the time had come to form the committee." "We have Delaney, and now David Trone, they both live in Potomac," said Parrott. "Many people said that they had no representation at rural Maryland in Congress. Parrott, who has been sitting in the state legislature since 2010, is a leader of the Hagerstown Tea Party, known to have forced voters to vote several times in recent years.

A 2014 campaign to force a public vote on legislation to extend anti-discrimination protection to transgender people has failed to collect enough signatures. The prosecution of the Maryland congressional map was brought by seven Republicans who lived in the 6th district before resetting the boundaries. Democratic officials who oversaw the redistricting said they were only making the district more competitive. The court disagreed, saying the card had been designed to dilute the influence of Republican voters. The decision applies to the entire map of the Maryland Congress as it was drawn in 2011, but the challengers proposed a change to the boundary between the 6th and 8th districts, which could address the concerns of the court without affecting the shape of the other districts. A spokeswoman for Trone said the newly elected Democrat was reviewing the court's decision. "He has been a staunch supporter of national cutting reform," said Muldavin. Maryland leaders have until March to redraw the district. .
