Kratovil faces uphill battle; Edwards, a surprise test – Mikulski Most Popular Senator in Maryland


Kratovil faces uphill battle; Edwards, a surprise test

WASHINGTON — – Stiff challenges for a pair of congressional incumbents and a re-election run by the state’s senior senator will headline a competitive 2010 election season for federal lawmakers from Maryland, according to politicians in both parties and independent analysts.

Republicans started gunning for Rep. Frank Kratovil before he took office in 2009 in the district that straddles the Chesapeake Bay, composed of the Eastern Shore and parts of Baltimore, Anne Arundel and Harford counties. Because the Democrat represents one of the most Republican areas of the state, he easily ranks as the most vulnerable member of the state’s delegation in Washington and is one of the most endangered House members in the country.
