Tighter Security for Cardin Townhall

WBAL-TV in Baltimore:
The Washington County Sheriff's Department and Hagerstown Community College campus security are gearing up for a town-hall style meeting on health care reform hosted by Sen. Ben Cardin.

The event discussing the hot-button issue is being held at the college's Kepler Theater on Wednesday.

At similar meetings around the country in recent weeks, members of Congress have faced heckling from their constituents. Cardin was booed and jeered throughout a meeting in Towson on Monday night.
Given the nature of Washington County (a slightly more conservative area than Towson, I would suspect that things are going to be even more contentious.
