BALTIMORE (WJZ/AP) — Voters in Maryland’s 6th Congressional District have re-elected Democrat John Delaney to be their voice in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The district includes parts of Allegany, Garrett and Washington Counties, as well as parts of Frederick and Montgomery Counties, and stretches 180 miles from the Washington suburbs of Montgomery County to the state’s western border.

Delaney is a Hillary Clinton ally who founded two financial businesses. During the campaign, he touted a bipartisan approach to policymaking. He also expressed optimism about the nation’s young people and the creativity of American business.

Gov. Larry Hogan had endorsed the Republican running for the seat, Amie Hoeber.

Hoeber’s campaign focused on her career as a national security adviser and consultant, dating to the Reagan administration.

She continued supporting Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, despite what she called his “sexist, abusive attitude” toward women, saying she would honor her pledge to support the GOP nominee.
