In 1970, however, he successfully gained election to the Council and served as a member until 1974. In 1974, he was the Democratic nominee for Congress against incumbent Republican Gilbert Gude. He lost 2:1.[1] In 1978, Kramer was elected to a seat in the Maryland State Senate where he served for eight years as Chairperson of the Montgomery County Delegation. In 1986, he returned to the County and subsequently defeated then-County Council Member David Scull in the race to become the third County Executive of Montgomery County.[2]
