Meet Your Next Congressman!

Maryland US House of Representatives Second District Congressional Candidates

A new congressional district for Baltimore County and parts of Carroll County was carved out after Maryland’s contentious redistricting court fight. Republicans believe the new district will return Baltimore County to a strong RED zone. Translated, Baltimore County Republicans will be choosing the next US Congressman in the upcoming July 19th primary election. Say goodbye to Dutch Ruppersberger!

The top four contenders are Nicolee Ambrose, Berney Flowers, Lance Griffin and Dave Wallace. Each candidate has a diverse set of experiences that lend credibility to their candidacies. The citizens of the newly formed District 2 have excellent choices. Who to choose?

Nicolee Ambrose has been an active participant in the Maryland GOP for many years. Her contacts reach back to the Bush Administration having served as a presidential appointee for George W. Bush at the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment Standards Administration (DOL). Nicolee has been a FOX News Radio Political Analyst, and she’s been a representative of the U.S. Department of State’s Speakers Bureau, where she has been deployed to key allied nations to address current affairs.

Berney Flowers recently retired from the US Airforce achieving the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. His career spanned over 33 years of combined experience in the Department of Defense (DoD), Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the private sector, Berney brings a wealth of expertise to bear. During his Air Force career, Berney deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan, and “visited” 22 countries and 43 states in the performance of his duties. In 2009, Berney returned to DoD as a civilian employee, where he served as part of US Cyber Command’s initial staff and as NORAD & USNORTHCOM’s (United States Northern Command) Sr. Advisor to Ft Meade. Most recently, he served as NORAD & USNORTHCOM’s Sr. Advisor to the DHS. Berney saw the destruction of our nation firsthand under the Biden Administration’s open boarder policies. It was then, he decided to do something about it!

“I proud to say I am the product of the American Dream.” Lance Griffin grew up in Dundalk, in a blue-collar neighborhood. Through some unfortunate family events, for a period of time his family had to rely on government assistance. Though low on the economic ladder, the family placed a priority on education. Lance obtained a scholarship to Loyola Blakefield High School and subsequently a scholarship to Loyola College graduating with an accounting degree. He worked as an Auditor for the Office of Inspector General, Department of Health and Human Services. Then enlisted in the Maryland Army National Guard, eventually obtaining a commission through Officer Candidate School served as an Infantry Platoon Leader. A desire to serve in law enforcement led him to become a Baltimore County Police Officer and then a Special Agent with the FBI.

Candidate Dave Wallace is a native Marylander. He grew up in East Baltimore County, in Dundalk, a blue collar community near the Sparrows Point Shipyard and Bethlehem Steel. Dave graduated from Salisbury University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology-Pre-Med. After he graduated, he worked at National Institute of Health (NIH) doing immunological therapy research to fight cancer. Dave is now a successful businessman in Carroll County. In 2008, Dave founded Restore America’s Mission, a public policy educational and grassroots advocacy organization, which brings a voice to Maryland conservatives on critical national and state issues, and even brought grassroots activists to rallies in Washington, D.C.

Tough choices and all great candidates to represent the newly formed Second Congressional District. Be sure to vote in the primary elections on July 19th.

Meeting was held at the Central Baltimore County Republican Club, President Maria Zichuhr.
