First District Democratic candidate Dr. John LaFerla received much praise in endorsements from local Democrats and Senator Ben Cardin at this year’s annual Kennedy-King Dinner in Kent County.
LaFerla accepted the endorsements with easy grace and humility but made it clear he was ready to do battle with Republican incumbent Dr. Andy Harris. He said he and Harris agree on virtually nothing.
“Harris voted 33 times to repeal Obamacare, but I embrace it,” LaFerla said. “And Andy Harris believes he has the vision to know what is right for women’s bodies…but I trust women to make those decisions.”
LaFerla criticized Harris for his failure to help drought stricken farmers and his continued support of corporations that pollute the Chesapeake Bay.
“They’re his business buddies and they give him money,” LaFerla said. “Harris is hypocritical, obstructionist, and he does not represent us.”
