Hoyer endorses Garagiola in Md. US House race

Wednesday - 2/8/2012, 1:37pm  ET

GERMANTOWN, Md. - State Sen. Rob Garagiola is getting support in his congressional campaign from Maryland's highest-ranking Democratic U.S. House member.

Rep. Steny Hoyer said Wednesday he's endorsing his fellow Democrat in the 6th District race because Garagiola is a fighter who seeks practical solutions and common ground.

Garagiola is in a four-way race for the Democratic nomination in Maryland's April 3 primary election.

Seven Republicans, including incumbent Roscoe Bartlett, are running for the GOP nomination.

Hoyer represents southern Maryland's 5th Congressional District. He is the second-ranking House Democrat, having served in Congress since 1981.
