Today, it’s another Midday on Politics.  With less than two weeks until Election Day, our Talking with the Candidates series continues with a focus on the 2nd Congressional District, which includes communities in Baltimore City as well as Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Harford and Howard Counties. 

Democrat Dutch Ruppersberger has represented the 2nd district in the U.S. Congress for the past 14 years.  He’s been an advocate for improved health care for veterans and has made national security and rebuilding the middle class priority issues.

He’s being challenged by 4-term Republican Delegate Pat McDonough, who has represented the 7th District (Baltimore and Harford counties) in the Maryland House of Delegates since 2003.  He’s also been an advocate for veterans, an outspoken critic of immigration policy, and a strong supporter of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. 

Dutch Ruppersberger and Pat McDonough take Tom's questions, and your calls and comments.
