BREAKING: Del. Richard Impallaria to Run for Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger's Seat // Plus, A New Liberty Candidate Filing?

UPDATE: The Baltimore Sun today prints an interview with Delegate Impallaria where he explains his reasons for running for Congress. Also, I believe we have identified the mysterious new gold coin-carrying Congressional candidate in Maryland: Peter James, a former CD4 candidate who was endorsed by Ron Paul in 2008. We found the following post from Mr. James on a blog today:
I filed to run in Maryland's new 6th Congressional. With a total of 8 candidate's running in the primary I believe the other will split the RHINO/neocon vote and I will win.

I ran in Maryland's 4th district in 2008 and won with 39% of the vote in a 4 way race. 14% points ahead of the party favorite, who spent twice what I did. All this with one $2,500 mailer.
Today, a Maryland Juice source reports that Delegate Pat McDonough was with Delegate Richard Impallaria today at the State Board of Elections. Mr. Impallaria was there submitting paperwork for the 2nd Congressional District Republican Primary. The seat is currently held by Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger. Republican State Senator Nancy Jacobs has already filed for the race.

Our source also noticed a potential Ron Paul supporter filing for Congress:
There was an unidentified candidate (meaning I just know he had paperwork to run for Congress… but I have no idea who he was) who was trying to pay his filing fee with treasury bills or silver or gold coins, as that was the only legal tender his pocket constitution would allow.  When the board said they wouldn’t take it, he asked for that in writing.
