Biography of John Kimble
John B. Kimble (born May 29, 1960) is an American behavioral scientist and a Republican Candidate for the 2012 United States Senate election in Maryland.
Kimble was born in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley and has maintained a residence in Maryland and the surrounding states for more than 30 years. He is a member of the American Association for Justice, the National Rifle Association, the American Civil Liberties Union, the Defenders of Wildlife, the Sierra Club, the Union of Concerned Scientists and the Southern Poverty Law Center where he is on the leadership council. Kimble is single and has no children at this time.
Kimble had been the Republican congressional nominee for Maryland’s 4th congressional district in 1996, 1998, 2000, and 2002, but lost in those years’ general elections to incumbent Albert Wynn. In the 2000 congressional election, Kimble made headlines when he had Wynn’s wife as his campaign manager. Kimble appeared on the Daily Show with Nancy Walls concerning this fact on November 6, 2000. Kimble also sought the Republican nomination during the 2006 United States Senate election, but placed a distant second with 3% of the vote to the eventual nominee, Michael Steele, and in 2008 ran in the Republican primary for Maryland’s 6th congressional district, losing to incumbent Roscoe Bartlett. In 2010 Kimble was again defeated in the Republican primary for Senate.
