Democrat Heather Mizeur targets Harford County in long shot push to unseat U.S. Rep. Andy Harris

October 24, 2022

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.
