Democrat Heather Mizeur’s bid to upset Republican U.S. Rep. Andy Harris relies on making inroads in GOP-oriented Harford County, which accounts for 35% of voters in the newly redrawn 1st Congressional District and has demonstrated an independent streak. The district, which also covers the Eastern Shore and a piece of Baltimore County, is the only one in Maryland where Republican voters outnumber Democrats. That means Mizeur, a former state delegate and 2014 gubernatorial candidate who lives in Kent County, must assemble a bloc of Democrats, unaffiliated voters and moderate Republicans in her long shot challenge to Harris, whom she has sought to label a “traitor” for trying to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
