Candidate Profile |
Ken Timmerman is hoping to unseat incumbent Rep. Chris Van Hollen in Maryland's newly configured 8th Congressional District, which now stretches from just outside Washington into more conservative areas of Frederick and Carroll counties.
"This is a stand up and be counted type of moment," Timmerman said. "I feel our freedoms are in jeopardy and it was time for me to stand up and defend them."
Timmerman, a journalist, fiction writer and political commentator, has lived and worked internationally, reporting from France, Egypt and Lebanon. He calls himself a "Middle East expert," and has worked for the House Foreign Affairs Committee. He is currently the lead investigator for a lawsuit against Iran on behalf of the families of Sept. 11 victims.
