Lawyer to run for Congress in 3rd District Tousey seeks Cardin's seat

November 09, 1993|By John O'Donnell | John O'Donnell,Washington Bureau

Robert R. Tousey, a 35-year-old Baltimore lawyer who lives in Elkridge, announced last night that he will seek the Republican nomination for the 3rd District seat held by Democratic Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin.

"The primary issue is elimination of the deficit," said Mr. Tousey, making his first try for elective office. Mr. Tousey said he supports a balanced budget amendment and giving the president the power to veto individual items in spending bills. Acknowledging that Mr. Cardin, who won re-election to a fourth term in 1992 with 74 percent of the vote, would be difficult to unseat, Mr. Tousey expects to run "an active campaign." A graduate of the University of Maryland and the University of Baltimore law school, Mr. Tousey is with Owens & Robertson.
