Andy wants Ag
Congressman-elect Andy Harris wants to fill Rep. Frank Kratovil's shoes in more than one way.
Not only will he be taking the First District congressional seat in the next Congress. He'd also like to be a member of the House Agriculture Committee, where Kratovil currently serves.
The assignment would be a way to stay in touch with an important part of his district's base, the farm economy, chickens and otherwise, on the Eastern Shore.
Harris said in a post-election interview he won't know for a while what other committees he'll be offered. The anesthesiologist wants to play a role on health care issues, including the GOP effort to roll back the Democratic overhaul already going into effect.
Meantime, no post-election beach vacation for Andy, at least not right away. He was back in the operating room this morning.
