Thomas H. Hattery, a Democrat, served in the Maryland House of Delegates from Frederick County. In the 1992 primary he upset long-term Democratic Congresswoman, Beverly Byron. Hattery was later defeated in the November 1992 General Election by the Republican candidate, Roscoe G. Bartlett. As depicted on the button, Hattery was attempting to ride the coat-tails of Presidential candidate Bill Clinton, as well as U.S. Senator Barbara Mikulski who was running for re-election. Except for Hattery, all were successful. Hattery received 106,224 votes, or 45.83% of the total, to Bartlett's 125,564 votes, or 54.17% of the total votes cast.

Roscoe Gardner Bartlett, a Republican and ten-term Congressman, defeated seven challengers in the April 2012 Republican Primary. Federal law requires that states examine and redraw legislative district lines after each census. Population (as well as political considerations that are often referred to as "gerrymandering"), form the basis for this review. Prior to the 2011 redistricting, District Six was 47% Republican and 36% Democrat. As of October 2012 the Democrats now have a 44% to 33% advantage going into the General Election. A reduction in corporate taxation and in federal regulations are goals of Bartlett in aiding the nation's economy. Congressman Roscoe Bartlett is also a member of the Congressional Tea Party Caucus. Bartlett was defeated by the Democrat, John Delaney, in the November 6, 2012 General Election. Delaney received 65.5% of the vote, to Bartlett’s 30.8%. The Bartlett button depicted here was distributed at the Republican Campaign Headquarters in September 2012 in Cumberland.

John Delaney, a Democrat, defeated four other candidates in the April 2012 Democratic Primary. Delaney is a financier and resident of Montgomery County, who actually resides about 300 yards outside the district boundary. Economic growth and the values of fairness and equality are noted as part of his campaign goals, as well as his support of abortion rights, the Dream Act, and marriage equality. As a result of the 2011 redistricting about 350,000 Montgomery County residents, mostly Democrats, were added to the Sixth Congressional District. At the same time, portions of the Sixth with strong Republican constituencies were removed. Delaney defeated the incumbent Republican, Roscoe Bartlett, in the November 6, 2012 General Election. Delaney received 65.5% of the vote, to Bartlett’s 30.8%. The Delaney button shown here was secured in October 2012 from the Democratic Campaign Headquarters in Cumberland.

The Delaney yard sign which is depicted is standing in front of the Allegany County Democratic Campaign Headquarters on the Downtown Cumberland Baltimore Street Mall. It is from his 2014 re-election campaign. In a very close General Election held on November 4, 2014, Delaney was re-elected to Congress. The official election results showed Delaney with 94,704 votes or 49.7%, to Bongino's 48.2%, or 91,930 votes. A Green Party candidate, George Gluck, had 3,762 or 2% of the votes.

Daniel Bongino, a Republican, was a candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2012 and was defeated by the Democrat, Senator Ben Cardin in the November 6, 2012 General Election. In 2014, he became the Republican candidate for the Sixth Congressional District seat held by the Democrat, Congressman John Delaney. Bongino is a former New York City Policeman and United States Secret Service agent. Putting people back to work is his top priority, and in this regard feels that government and government bureaucracies place too many obstacles and road blocks toward achieving this goal. In a very close General Election held on November 4, 2014, Delaney was re-elected to Congress. The official election results showed Delaney with 94,704 votes or 49.7%, to Bongino's 48.2%, or 91,930 votes. A Green Party candidate, George Gluck, had 3,762 or 2% of the votes.
