Rep. Trone Reelected in Gerrymandered District

U.S. Rep. David Trone was reelected to represent Maryland’s Sixth District.

“I am honored and grateful that the people of the 6th District have re-elected me to continue serving them. This victory a reflection of the time we spent in the district, our commitment to constituent services, and our focus on bipartisan solutions for critical issues like mental health and addiction,” he wrote in a news release.

“Because we’ve always been focused on bipartisanship, we are in a strong position to get things done, regardless of which party controls the House,” said the Democrat who was first elected in November 2018.

His Republican opponent, Neil Parrott, called Trone Friday afternoon.

“He was very gracious in conceding. I appreciate him running a hard-fought campaign and showing grace when the outcome became clear. It’s on all of us to protect the future of democracy and our free and fair elections,” Trone said in the news release.

As of 5:30 p.m., Trone had 109,062 votes to Parrott’s 107,167, according to unofficial results from the Maryland Board of Elections.

The 6th District includes all of Garrett, Allegany, Frederick, and Washington counties as well as a portion of Montgomery County.
