ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Wendy Rosen's bid to unseat Republican incumbent Congressman Andy Rosen came to an abrupt halt Monday when she withdrew from the 1st District Congressional race.
Rosen, the Democratic candidate, wrote a letter to Maryland Attorney General Doug Ganzler informing him of her decision. She had earlier told party chair Yvette Lewis that she had voted in the 2008 presidential primaries in Florida and Maryland, as well as the 2006 general election.
With Rosen's exit, Rep. Harris is virtually assured of winning a third two-year term in the House of Representatives.
