Franchot Endorses Blair for County Executive

Comptroller Peter Franchot endorsed David Blair of Potomac on Monday, choosing the former health care executive as his pick to succeed Ike Leggett as Montgomery County executive.

In a tweet, Franchot announced his endorsement for Blair just days before the start of early voting in the 2018 primaries.

Five other Democrats are vying for county executive: Councilmembers Roger Berliner of North Bethesda, Marc Elrich of Takoma Park and George Leventhal of Takoma Park; as well as Del. Bill Frick of Bethesda and former Rockville mayor Rose Krasnow. The winner of the Democratic primary will face off against Republican Robin Ficker in the November general election.
