CENTREVILLE, Md. (AP) — Former Rep. Frank Kratovil has applied for a judgeship in Queen Anne’s County.

Kratovil, who now works in the Prince George’s County state’s attorney’s office, is one of five people who have applied to replace Judge John Clark, who is retiring.

Kratovil, a Democrat who was Queen Anne’s County’s state’s attorney before he won his congressional seat, lost his re-election bid in last year to Republican Andy Harris.

A new redistricting map proposed by an advisory committee would add some conservative areas to the 1st congressional district.

Kratovil had 42 percent of the vote last year, compared to 54 percent for Harris.
