BLADENSBURG, Md. (AP/WBOC) - A former George W. Bush administration defense department appointee from Bladensburg is running for Senate in Maryland.
    
Richard J. Douglas announced Monday that he will seek the Republican nomination in the race to succeed Sen. Barbara Mikulski, who announced in March that she would not seek re-election. The Navy veteran's 2012 bid for Senate was unsuccessful.
    
Douglas said Republican Gov. Larry Hogan's victory set the stage for improvements for American workers, but moving ahead "requires a new team on Capitol Hill."

"I am convinced that Maryland has the wherewithal to overtake Texas in job creation, unless the political machine which brought Maryland rats, riots, and the rain tax smothers urgently-needed reform," Douglas added. 
    
The State Board of Elections website lists two Republicans who have filed, Douglas and Anthony Seda of Aberdeen.
    
Reps. Chris Van Hollen and Donna Edwards, both Democrats, are running for the seat. Other House members from Maryland have been weighing a run for the Democratic nomination for Senate.
