Leggett Set to Endorse Kramer in MoCo's District 4 Race
Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) is expected on Monday to endorse Del. Benjamin Kramer (D) in his bid to join the County Council, sources close to the Kramer campaign said today.
Kramer's campaign is also anticipating the backing of at least one council member - Duchy Trachtenberg (D-At Large). The official announcement is scheduled for Monday at the retirement community of Leisure World.
Kramer is one of ten candidates seeking to fill the District 4 seat left open by the death in January of Don Praisner.
Democrat Nancy Navarro, a member of the Board of Education, secured the backing of four council members earlier this week. But whether Leggett would get involved in the campaign had become the subject of much speculation. He has a long history with the Kramer family, dating back more than 20 years when the candidate's father, former county executive Sidney Kramer, endorsed Leggett's first run for office.
