R. David Harden spent years building economies overseas during his time with the foreign service. Now, the foreign policy strategist wants to do so in Maryland’s 1st Congressional District. Harden told Maryland Matters that he’ll seek the Democratic nomination for a chance to unseat U.S. Rep Andrew P. Harris in 2022, adding to an already crowded Democratic field. His planned congressional bid was first reported by A Miner Detail. Harden is the founder and managing director of the Georgetown Strategy Group, a consulting outfit that represents technology and financial firms from the Middle East to “promote trade and investment, advance security and stability, develop economic opportunity, and facilitate the delivery of humanitarian assistance in the Middle East and Africa,” according to the group’s website.
