FIFTH DISTRICT, MD – Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-5) released the following statement tonight following the primary election in Maryland:
“I am proud to represent Maryland’s Fifth District in Congress and I thank voters for supporting me in the primary election today. I have a proven record as an effective leader who addresses the priorities of families throughout the Fifth District. I have been successful in protecting our military installations and federal facilities, and I will continue to be a strong advocate for bringing the new, consolidated FBI headquarters to Maryland. I will also continue to focus on job creation and ensuring that all Fifth District families and businesses have the tools necessary to compete and succeed in today's economy.
“I am also pleased that Maryland voters supported Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee for president. I believe she has the experience needed to lead our country. Secretary Clinton has dedicated her life to public service and has consistently stood up for families and children. Maryland residents deserve a leader like Hillary Clinton who will work diligently to ensure that Maryland families have the chance to get ahead and stay ahead.”
