“It’s about whether you think you’re better off than you were two years ago, whether you think this country is on the right track. That’s it.” That’s how Rep. Andy Harris, the Republican running for a seventh term in Congress (despite having pledged not to), summed up voter choice in Election 2022. Because Harris obviously wants more Marylanders to vote for him than for his Democratic challenger, Heather Mizeur, he’s betting that a majority of voters feel they are not better off than they were in 2020, when Donald Trump was president, and that the country is on the wrong track under President Joe Biden because even chicken thighs have gotten pricey.
