On a cold, rainy Saturday, over 150 enthusiastic Democratic supporters attended the "Western Maryland Democratic Unity Rally" to show support for John Delaney.  Delaney won the Democratic primary and will now face twenty year incumbent sixth district Republican Representative Roscoe Bartlett.

Joining Delaney in speaking to the crowd, were Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler, Maryland U.S. Senator Ben Cardin and Maryland eight district Representative Chris Van Hollen (D).

Cardin, who is running for reelection had the crowd roaring in approval as he pointed out the importance of President Obama returning to office to serve another term.  Cardin added failing to reelect Obama would take us back to the failed policies of the George W. Bush administration.

Van Hollen, former two-term chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, spoke on the "Drive for 25" campaign to regain a Democratic majority in the House and also welcomed Frederick voters who are now part of the eight district he represents.

John Delaney was gracious in thanking his Democratic primary opponents; state senator Rob Garagiola, Rob Little, Charles Bailey and Dr. Milad Pooran for helping him become a stronger candidate. 

The event was held at the Weinberg Center in downtown Frederick and sponsored by the Maryland Democratic Party and the Frederick County Democratic state central committee.
