Congratulations to Andy Harris, who won the GOP primary in Maryland's First Congressional District against liberal Republican incumbent Wayne Gilchrest.  Also in order, are kudos for the Club for Growth -- who backed Harris. 

This was a big win for conservative Harris.  Despite being probably the most liberal Republican in Congress, Gilchrest was endorsed by heavy-hitters such as former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and former Maryland Lt. Gov., Michael Steele.
