Historical Note

Wayne Thomas Gilchrest, Republican member of the United States House of Representatives, represented Maryland’s First Congressional District from January 3, 1991, to January 3, 2009 (102nd-110th Congresses).

 Born in Rahway, New Jersey, on April 15, 1946, Gilchrest, after graduating from high school, joined the U.S. Marine Corps. During his brief military career (1964-1968), he participated in the American intervention in the Dominican Republic (1965) and served in Vietnam. Rising to the rank of sergeant and serving as a platoon leader in Vietnam, Gilchrest received the Purple Heart, Bronze Star, and Navy Commendation Medal.  

 In 1969, Gilchrest earned an associate degree in liberal arts from Wesley College in Dover, Delaware. He then spent a semester in Kentucky studying rural poverty in Appalachia. In 1973, Gilchrest received a bachelor’s degree in history from Delaware State College. Since then, he has completed some coursework toward obtaining a master’s degree at Loyola College in Baltimore, Maryland.

 Before embarking on a political career, Gilchrest taught history, government, and civics at Kent County High School (1973-1986), and worked for the National Forest Service in Bitteroot National Forest (1986).

 Gilchrest first ran for Congress in 1988. Despite being badly outspent by his opponent, Roy Dyson, Gilchrest lost by less than one percent of the vote as allegations of improper contributions from defense contractors and questions concerning Dyson’s sexual orientation nearly forced him from office. In a rematch in 1990, Gilchrest soundly defeated Dyson. From 1992 through 2006, Gilchrest faced only one competitive challenge for his House seat, that coming in 1992 from Thomas McMillen, the former Representative of Maryland’s Fourth Congressional District whose district had been redrawn into the First District following the adjustment of congressional districts in accordance with the 1990 Census. Although registered Democratic voters slightly outnumbered their Republican counterparts in his district, Gilchrest, a moderate Republican known for his advocacy of conservation and environmental protection policies which appealed to his Eastern Shore constituency concerned about the future of the Chesapeake Bay, retained his House seat in the next seven consecutive elections with little difficulty. In those contests, Gilchrest received as much as seventy-five percent and never less than sixty percent of the vote. His moderate voting record, however, fueled charges that he was a ‘Republican in Name Only’ (by 2008 he was considered one of the most liberal Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives), which eventually cost him his congressional seat. After eight consecutive  unsuccessful primary challenges, in 2008 Gilchrest faced four Republican challengers for his seat, most notably State Senators Andrew Harris and E. J. Pipkin. Hitting Gilchrest hard for his moderate stance on social policies, opposition to the Iraq War, and alleged support of Democratic efforts to raise taxes, Harris defeated Gilchrest, with Pipkin finishing a close third. Following his defeat, Gilchrest broke with his party, supporting Frank Kratovil, the Democratic nominee, who defeated Harris in the general election.
