John Delaney considers run for Maryland's 6th District
HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - A Montgomery County businessman says he's considering joining the race for the U.S. House seat held by Republican Rep. Roscoe Bartlett.
Democrat John Delaney is a founder and chairman of CapitalSource Inc., a commercial lender based in Chevy Chase.
Delaney said Monday that he's forming an exploratory committee to help him decide whether to seek the 6th District seat.
Three other Democrats and five Republicans, including Bartlett, are already in the race.
Delaney says elected representatives should focus on job creation and putting the middle class first.
He recently formed a nonprofit think tank called Blueprint Maryland to investigate the state's best prospects for private job creation.
