UPDATED (June 13) – Maryland crab cakes lost in the final round of the CQ Roll Call Taste of America to Indian’s pork tenderloin. Crab cakes made it to the final round last year, but the 2014 winning streak was cracked by Utah’s cherry cobble.
Jason Dick of Heard on the Hill reported Maryland was “crushing its rival, Connecticut New Haven Pizza, by a more than 2-to-1 margin and amassing the highest vote total thus far.”
Montana steak was in a tight race against Oregon black pie. The other races were pretty much a blow with Arizona pork chimichangas leading New Mexico frijoles and Maine lobster roll demolishing Delaware boardwalk fries.
The winner was revealed at the 54th Annual Roll Call Congressional Baseball Game on June 11. And Maryland fell in the final round for the second year in a row.
Indiana (not shown in the picture above) amassed 6,560 votes and swept the win. CQ Roll Call has the full brackets.
Virginia ham biscuits never made it out of the first round, losing to DC chili half smokes (sausages). Our condolences, Virginia.
