David Trone projected to win reelection in Maryland's 6th District

Rep. David Trone (D-Md.) is projected to win his reelection bid, holding off a challenge from Del. Neil C. Parrott (R) in Marylandís 6th Congressional District, which for the first time in years emerged as the stateís most competitive congressional race, leading Trone to invest millions of his personal fortune in defending the seat.

Parrott called Trone to concede on Friday afternoon, both campaigns confirmed.

Troneís victory allows Democrats to notch one more win in the still-closely fought battle for control of the U.S. House, which remains unresolved. Republican hopes of a big red wave collapsed spectacularly after Democrats defied expectations to hang onto seats in numerous tough districts while avoiding slews of upset-surprises in others, like Marylandís 6th, where most political analysts considered Trone the favorite despite Parrottís spirited challenge.

The rematch between Trone and Parrott was seen as Marylandís most exciting congressional race, where Parrott hoped a strong grass roots game and broad dissatisfaction with the economy and President Biden could overpower Troneís enormous personal wealth and incumbent advantage.

6. yes, and not entirely:

The district includes the entire Eastern Shore, as well as several eastern exurbs of Baltimore.

A friend of mine is one of his victims, and does NOT live on the Eastern shore, The district also includes parts of Baltimore, Harford, and Carroll counties. It is the largest congressional district in the state geographically, covering 12 counties (in whole or part), for a total of 3,653 square miles.

Ran a heck of a campaign to unseat him. Unfortunately, she came up short.

11. District 6 in Maryland is western Maryland

Allegheny Garret Washington Frederick and a little of Montgomery. Parrot has been a Maryland delegate who a couple decades ago wrote an op ed proposing everyone who has AIDS be tattooed in order to receive medication. He also thinks men can rape their wives. It is such a relief Trone won.

5. Not as much "dissatisfaction" with Pres Biden

and the Country as ol Parrott hoped. Which is a bullshit premise based on the stupid media.

Marylanders apparently have been paying attention to REALITY!!

TY!
