The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has endorsed Republican Roscoe G. Bartlett in his race for the 6th District congressional seat.
"Roscoe Bartlett has a solid business background," chamber President Richard Lesher said in a press release.
Bartlett of Frederick has worked as a home builder, medical researcher, educator and farmer.
He faces state Del. Thomas H. Hattery, D-Frederick, in the November election.
Bartlett announced recently that Frederick County attorney and former member of Congress Larry Hogan Sr. would co-chair his campaign.
