Total Wine & More’s David Trone Mounts New Congressional Run

August 3, 2017

Total Wine & More co-owner David Trone has announced that he’s running for Congress in Maryland’s 6th District. Trone, a Potomac-based Democrat, is running to replace Representative John Delaney, who recently announced that he’s running for president in 2020. Trone says he will finance his own campaign and will not receive contributions from lobbyists, corporations or political action committees. This will be Trone’s second campaign for Congress following an unsuccessful bid for Maryland’s 8th district in 2016. Trone’s previous campaign was notable for the $13 million he spent out of his own pocket, making it one of the most expensive self-funded House campaigns in history. —Shane English
