State House Majority Leader Bill Frick (D-Bethesda), who had announced his candidacy for the open 6th Congressional District (Rep. John Delaney (D-Potomac) retiring to prepare a presidential campaign), has now reversed his political course. Yesterday, Mr. Frick withdrew from the congressional race and will instead enter the open race for Montgomery County Executive. Remaining in the Democratic primary congressional race are five announced candidates, including Total Wine, Inc. founder David Trone, state Sen. Roger Manno (D-Montgomery County), and state Delegate Aruna Miller (D-Montgomery County). Democrats are favored to hold the seat in the 2018 general election.
