Wine mogul Trone an­nounces run for Congress in 6th District

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

A wine su­per­store owner says he’s run­ning for Congress again.

David Trone an­nounced his can­di­dacy Wed­nes­day for the Demo­cratic nom­i­na­tion for Mary­land’s 6th Con­gres­sional District, which in­cludes west­ern Mary­land and a large sec­tion of Mont­gomery County.

Mr. Trone, owner of the To­tal Wine and More chain, pledged to con­tinue the work of Rep. John De­laney, who an­nounced last week that he’ll run for pres­i­dent in­stead of seek­ing re-elec­tion.

Mr. Trone says he’ll op­pose at­tempts to gut health care, women’s rights, ed­u­ca­tion, en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tions and So­cial Se­cu­rity.

In 2016, Mr. Trone sought the 8th District seat, which in­cludes sub­urbs of Washington and Bal­ti­more. He put more than $12 mil­lion of his own money into the con­test, mak­ing it the most ex­pen­sive self-funded House cam­paign at the time, but lost in the pri­mary to Jamie Raskin.
