Blueprint Maryland’s Delaney exploring congressional run

John Delaney, the Montgomery County businessman behind Blueprint Maryland, is considering a run for the U.S. House of Representatives in the freshly redrawn 6th Congressional District. Blueprint is Delaney's roadmap to move Maryland beyond its dependence on federal largess. "Old Maryland was about government jobs," the Blueprint draft report states, "but the new Maryland's job opportunities are still in question." Delaney has formed an exploratory committee to look into the congressional run and, not surprisingly, job creation is at the top of his would-be to do list. "I'm convinced that if we stay focused on creating jobs, embrace ideas that put the middle class first and involve the public and private sector to get things done, we can make a positive difference in people's lives," Delaney said in a statement announcing his interest Monday. "The level of unemployed and underemployed in this country is tragic and is, by almost any measure, the most important issue of the day."
