    Watch out Dr. Harris….here he comes!! Having Jesse win this primary is a huge win for the Eastern Shore.

  2. Margery Elsberg says:

    Go, Jesse, go!
    I sure hope all of the candidates in this race do everything they can to flip the First and put Jesse Colvin in the House. He’s a true patriot who believes in medical care availability and a clean Chesapeake Bay.
    Go, Jesse go!

    • Paul Murray says:

      The watermen on the Eastern Shore are not at all appreciative of the idea of oil derricks leaking petroleum onto their livelihoods. Harris is possibly the least likely match between his constituents and his big money oil company supporters in the Congress and the only thing he can offer the people who actually live in the first district is conservative rhetoric. Still, Harris’s venal supporters have a LOT of money, and it is up to us to give Jesse an equivalent amount of grassroots support along with our votes so he can win in November
