Dr. Mark Plaster is running for Congress in Maryland's 3RD District. He's a man with great experience, character and vision - and, he's a personal friend of mine. Recently, I had the opportunity to ask Campaign Manager Cory Dennis a few questions about Mark to help folks get to know him better. Here's what Cory had to say:

TELL US ABOUT MARK'S BACKGROUND.

Mark was born in Texas and raised in Missouri. He attended junior college on a basketball scholarship, eventually made it to med school and began practicing emergency medicine. Mark wanted to better understand healthcare law, so he attended law school at night while running an ER during the day. Being a doctor and lawyer eventually led Mark to starting his own publishing company that now produces three magazines: One circulates to over 35,000 doctors, the second in 15 countries, and the third highlights the cutting edge of new health technologies.

WHY IS MARK RUNNING FOR CONGRESS?

As seen in our newest video Mark wants to do three things: Take care of our Veterans, help the middle class, and make our country safer.

HOW HAS THE CURRENT REPRESENTATIVE FROM THE THIRD CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT RESPONDED TO THE VA HOSPITAL CRISIS?

John Sarbanes votes in the bottom 1 percent on Veteran Issues. This is unacceptable in any case, but especially in considering that there are over 50,000 veterans in the 3rd District. He also scored a ZERO with the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB). Mark scored a 100 percent and received their official endorsement. In essence, EVERYTHING small business is for, John Sarbanes is against.
