The Congressman received more than 60,000 votes from the four jurisdictions in the District including Anne Arundel County, Baltimore County, Harford County, and Baltimore City.

Funding road and transit improvements, protecting the environment, strengthening our education system, ensuring our seniors have access to high quality, affordable prescription drugs, and taking care of our active military personnel and veterans are my top priorities. Team Maryland is also focused on getting Maryland ready for the influx of new jobs and the growth associated with the Base Realignment and Closing (BRAC) process at Fort Meade and Aberdeen Proving Grounds,” said Congressman C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger.
