Gaithersburg, MD – In a sign of growing campaign momentum, Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot has endorsed Democrat John Delaney in the race for Maryland’s Sixth Congressional District. Comptroller Franchot announced his endorsement at Delaney Campaign Headquarters in Gaithersburg, in front of dozens of campaign volunteers. 

Prior to being elected the state’s 33rd Comptroller, Franchot served in the House of Delegates, representing District 20 from 1987-2007. As the state’s chief fiscal officer, Comptroller Franchot has been a leading voice for fiscal responsibility and expanded economic opportunity.

Comptroller Franchot released the following statement:

“With first-hand experience creating jobs and helping small businesses grow, John knows how to solve our fiscal challenges and get our citizens back to work. Maryland's 6th District needs a Congressman who will bring people together to build an economic future that supports the middle class, and that’s John Delaney.”

“I am honored to receive Comptroller Franchot’s endorsement,” said John Delaney. “Comptroller Franchot has been a leading Democratic voice for fiscal responsibility, expanding economic opportunities for all Marylanders, and better financial literary programs in our schools.”

Comptroller Franchot’s endorsement is the latest in a series of major endorsements received by Delaney, who has also been endorsed by President Clinton, the Washington Post, and former Montgomery County Executive Doug Duncan.
