    What to Know

    • Democrat David Trone defeated Republican Amie Hoeber for Maryland's 6th Congressional District, the only open seat.

    • Rep. Andy Harris (R) beat challenger Jesse Colvin to keep Maryland's 1st Congressional District.

    • Harris is the only Republican representative in Maryland.

    Democrat David Trone has been elected to an open U.S. House seat, edging out Republican candidate Amie Hoeber,

    The liquor magnate defeated Hoeber on Tuesday to represent Maryland's 6th District that stretches from populous Montgomery County to the state's border with West Virginia. The congressional seat was open because three-term incumbent John Delaney, a Democrat, plans on running for president.

    It was a high-stakes race for the wealthy Potomac businessman, co-founder of an alcohol retailer. Not only did Trone put more than $11 million into the effort but he underwent cancer surgery and chemotherapy during this year's campaign season.

    Also winning was Andy Harris, a four-term Republican incumbent in a Maryland congressional district that leaned heavily conservative. Harris defeated Democratic challenger Jesse Colvin, a former U.S. Army Ranger.
