September 15, 2022

Republican U.S. Rep. Andy Harris abruptly switched gears on Wednesday, pulling out of an October debate with Democratic challenger Heather Mizeur over his insistence that the Libertarian Party candidate be included. The campaign of Harris, a conservative seeking a seventh term in the 1st Congressional District, had released a statement earlier in the day to The Baltimore Sun, saying he “won’t pull out if a third-party candidate can’t attend, but he will nonetheless insist on them being invited to debates.”
