MD-1 Remains Deeply Red in the Blue State; Harris Re-elected To 6th Term

While Maryland went predictably blue in yesterday’s election, and the nation awaits the outcome of jurisdictions in razor close states, Kent County took its predictable path to red, voting overwhelmingly for incumbent Donald J. Trump by an 8 point margin.

In the race for Maryland’s 1st District, it wasn’t even close. Kent Countians voted by an 11-point spread for incumbent Andy Harris over Democratic challenger Mia Mason, sending him back to the U.S. House of Representatives for a sixth term. Harris was first elected to Congress in the 2010 Tea Party wave.

Overall, Harris will win the 1st District by a 2-1 margin.

Vote Count in KC:

Harris (R) 4,325 (55.4%)
Mason (D) 3,463 (44.4%)

Vote Count Entire District:

Harris (R) 209,829 (67%)
Mason (D) 103,280 (33%%)

For Kent County School Board, incumbent President Joe Goetz will keep his seat and Francoise Sullivan of Worton will join the board as a freshman. Both ran unopposed.

School Board Votes:

Goetz: 5,442 (53.2%)
Sullivan: 4,672 (45.6%)

  1. But of course. The Democrat party in Maryland gerrymandered the 1st District to pack it with as many Republicans voters as possible in order to make other districts safe for Democrats. Under this regime, running as a Democrat for the 1st District Congressional seat is a fool’s errand.
