Hoeber questions Trone spending in congressional race
Republican Amie Hoeber is questioning the spending of her Democratic opponent, David Trone, in the 6th Congressional District race. Hoeber accuses Trone of trying to buy the U.S. Congressional seat, with his expenditures believed to be nearing sixteen million dollars.
Hoeber also noted that Trone has donated $2500 to the GOP candidate for governor in Pennsylvania. "He has stated this election will be 'Decided by Western Pennsylvania,'" Hoeber said Tuesday, "but I still think it will be decided by Western Maryland."
Trone has recently returned to the campaign trail and the airwaves following successful treatment for cancer.
