The District 15 Democratic primary 

State Sen. Brian J. Feldman (D-Potomac) seeks re-election alongside his Democratic House counterparts, Del. Kathleen Dumas and David Fraiser-Hidalgo.

Feldman, Dumas and Fraiser-Hidalgo are forming an unofficial re-election pact. The three incumbents say they plan not to run alongside a non-incumbent.

A vacancy in the District 15 delegation exists because Del. Aruna Miller (D-Darnestown) is seeking the 6th District congressional seat.

Candidates, Candidates!

A torrent of new candidates recently jumped at the opportunity to replace Miller in the District 15 delegation, including:

  • Montgomery County Assistant Chief Administrative Officer for Economic & Workforce Development Lily Qi;
  • Rep. John Delaney’s Montgomery and Frederick County District Director, Kevin Mack;
  • Democratic activist Tony Puca;
  • Air Force Reservist Amy Frieder;
  • Former Congressional Quarterly researcher and reporter, Andy Van Wye;
  • Education Consultant Jaye Espy;
  • Montgomery County Office of Human Rights employee Anis Ahmed.
