Total Wine’s David Trone Wins Congressional Primary In Maryland

June 27, 2018

Total Wine co-owner David Trone has won the Democratic primary in Maryland’s 6th district, advancing to the general election for the state’s open seat in the House of Representatives. Trone bested seven other Democratic candidates and will now face defense contractor and GOP candidate Amie Hoeber in the general election. Trone’s self-financed campaign spent over $10 million to promote the candidate among voters and, according to the Washington Post, vastly out spent his competitors. As a candidate, Trone’s key issues are creating jobs and solving the opioid crisis. This year, Total Wine intends to open 20 new locations nationwide.—Shane English
