Rep. Andy Harris will hold a virtual town hall meeting Monday and Tuesday night.

Maryland's lone Republican congressman has already held several of these town halls, despite calls from some of his constituents to hold in-person meetings.

Monday's teleconference town hall will begin at 5:30 p.m. The town hall will begin at 6 p.m. on Tuesday.

Harris is a big supporter of repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act.

He said he wanted to wait until an Obamacare replacement had been proposed before holding an in-person meeting.

"It's important to me that we have the proposed plan details in hand to share with attendees of the brick-and-mortar town hall so that I can answer their specific questions at the town hall, rather than offer only speculation, which is all we have at this time," said Harris.

Harris announced last week that he will hold an in-person town hall on March 31.
