Hoeber pledged to use her victory to work across the aisle to make Congress more productive and to help Republican Gov. Larry Hogan bring federal funding to the 6th District to tackle her priorities – transportation projects, creating and protecting jobs, stopping MS-13 gang crime from spreading and opioid addiction.

"Many people think the district is so diverse that it can't be brought together," Hoeber said.

I am willing and able to work across all lines to get things done."
