Del. Harry Bhandari on why Maryland voters should send him to Congress

In today’s Conversations with the Candidate, Delegate Harry Bhandari joins Midday to explain why he thinks he should represent Maryland's 2nd Congressional District. Bhandari has represented District 8, covering Baltimore County, as a Democrat in the state General Assembly since 2019. He was born in Nepal and emigrated to the United States in 2005. After losing a bid for the House of Delegates in 2014, he ran again and won in 2018, becoming the first Nepali American to win election to a state legislature in the country.

The U.S. House seat opened following Representative Dutch Ruppersberger's announcement in January that he would not seek reelection to represent the district.
