FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Roscoe Bartlett says he is filing for re-election in Maryland’s 6th Congressional District.

The 85-year-old Republican said Tuesday he hopes to win an 11th term representing western and north-central Maryland. He says he aims to create conditions for economic growth by cutting spending, reducing taxes and eliminating red tape.

Republican Joseph Krysztoforski of Baltimore County has also filed for the seat.

  1. Wheres common sense when you need it says:

    After 11 terms, cutting taxes, spending, and red tape are now the priority? We need to elect someone other than a Republican or a Democrate. Its time for some REAL change!

    At 85 he should retire. After 11 terms he has nothing new to contribute. Elect someone with new ideas.
