In accordance with the Maryland Democratic Party’s procedures following the resignation of a candidate BEFORE an election, the 12 Democratic Central Committees in MD-1 voted this week and selected Dr. John LaFerla to run against Republican Andy Harris in the November 6, 2012 election. The MDP’s public endorsement is expected shortly.
“We’re ready to fight for every vote in all 12 counties”, the candidate said.
Because the ballots have already been printed, John LaFerla’s name will have to be written in by voters.
According to Erik Gulbrandsen, the LaFerla Campaign manager, “ …our staff is in place across the district and is moving ahead in hyper overdrive to make John LaFerla the next Congressional representative of the people not the 1%. “
