Flush with campaign cash, Maryland Rep. Andy Harris gives hundreds of thousands to Trump backers and right-wing candidates

February 18, 2021

Maryland congressman Andy Harris’ biggest expense during the last election wasn’t fundraising, campaign commercials or staff. It was contributions to political friends, allies and organizations mostly loyal to then-President Donald Trump. The Republican from Baltimore County sent more than $325,000 from his 2020 campaign account to conservative groups and candidates — including Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado, a right-wing gun activist who once tweeted that she would “carry my Glock to Congress,” and a fund supporting Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, who was recently stripped of her committee assignments because she indicated support for political violence and bizarre conspiracy theories.
