I read your article last Thursday in the Post about Gerry Connolly forming an exploratory panel to run for congress. Well written Bill. I want you to be the first to know that I will be running again for the 11th district seat as a Libertarian candidate. I ran as a Libertarian in 1994 against Tom Davis and Leslie Byrne. A very contentious race. It is possible, should Tom decide to defend his seat, that the same three individuals will compete again, 14 years later, for the same seat.
