Kratovil Up in New Poll

Posted by: Jack Sterne

As many of you know, the race to succeed Ocean Champion Rep. Wayne Gilchrest (R-Md.) in Maryland’s 1st Congressional District is one of our highest priority races.  We’ve endorsed local prosecutor and ocean lover Frank Kratovil (D) against anti-environment zealot State Sen. Andy Harris (R).  Rep. Gilchrest, who wants to ensure that his stalwart record of working to protect the environment is maintained, has crossed party lines to endorse Frank Kratovil.

Well the good news out of Maryland today is that Kratovil has now taken a over Harris in a new poll released yesterday.  This is after he trailed by back in May.

This is a fantastic trend, and indicates that Kratovil could actually pull this off.  We really need to defeat Harris, or we’ll have a double-whammy, going from one of the strongest advocates for the oceans in Congress, to what is sure to be one of the worst.  Please do what you can to support Kratovil.  You can donate to his campaign here.
