Maryland's 2nd congressional district elections, 2014
November 4, 2014
Maryland has a closed primary system, in which the selection of a party's candidates in a primary election is limited to registered members of that party.
Heading into the election the incumbent is Dutch Ruppersberger (D), who was first elected in 2002.
Maryland's 2nd congressional district encompasses parts of Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Harford and Howard counties, including parts of the city of Baltimore. On March 30, 2012, the 2nd district was included in a list released by the National Journal of the top ten most contorted congressional districts, as a result of redistricting. 
Note: Prior to the signature filing deadline, candidates will be added when Ballotpedia writers come across declared candidates. If you see a name of a candidate who is missing, please email us and we will add that name. As the election draws closer, more information will be added to this page.
The 2nd congressional district of Maryland held an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 6, 2012, in which incumbent Dutch Ruppersberger (D) won re-election. He defeated Nancy Jacobs (R), Ray Bly (R) and Leo Dymowski (L) in the general election.
