Democrat Tom Hayhurst knocked on doors in Garrett, while Republican Marlin Stutzman went door-to-door on
Stutzman—with his family in tow—told voters why he should fill the seat once occupied by Mark Souder. He promised to serve with honor.
“There's a lot of people that just feel like, you know, people are out of touch in Washington,” said Stutzman, “and that's something we want to rebuild, and build that trust back up, and make a difference for the people here in the third congressional district.”
Hayhurst stopped by homes of registered voters, promising them that if he's elected, he won't be a career politician. He also vowed to help repair the economy.
“I'll hold my hand up right now and pledge to fight constantly for better jobs, more jobs, for citizens here in northeast
Voters will cast ballots twice in this race: first, in the special election to finish the current house term which was vacated by former Rep. Mark Souder; and second, in the general election to select the congressman for the next two years.
Libertarian Scott Wise is also running for the seat.
