More Republicans than Democrats have signed up to unseat Rep. Roscoe Bartlett in the April primary, even though boundary changes made during redistricting favor Democrats in the general election.
"We have so many individuals who are career politicians," said Mr. Rippeon, a Darnestown resident. "I think a lot of these people are out of touch and I don't think they understand so many of the things they are doing in Congress at the federal level, how they affect real people and the real economy."
Citing his work in the private sector, most of it as an auto dealer, Mr. Rippeon, 39, said he wants to simplify the tax code, increase domestic petroleum and natural gas production and overhaul the nation's immigration policy.
