Today, another in our series of Conversations with the Candidates.

Jesse Colvin is running for Congress in Maryland’s sprawling 1st Congressional District.  In a crowded primary field last summer, he beat five other Democrats. 

Now, with the November 6 General Election less than a month away, Colvin faces incumbent Andy Harris in the only Maryland congressional district that leans Republican.  Harris, a Republican, is seeking his 5th term in the US Congress.

Colvin served four combat deployments in Afghanistan as an Army Ranger and intelligence officer.  He says that running for Congress is another call to serve.  This is his first run for elective office.

Jesse Colvin joins Tom in Studio A.
