Businessman David Blair to challenge Montgomery executive Marc Elrich in 2022

March 24, 2021

Potomac businessman David Blair is announcing his bid for Montgomery County executive on Wednesday, becoming the first known challenger to incumbent Marc Elrich (D), who plans to seek reelection in 2022. Blair, a Montgomery native who built his wealth by running a prescription drug benefits company, poured a record $5.4 million into his campaign in 2018 and lost to Elrich by 77 votes in the crowded Democratic primary. In an interview Tuesday, he said he has spent the past three years leading a nonprofit advocacy group and, more recently, working with his wife to support vulnerable families affected by the pandemic.
