Charles Lollar campaign loses in court over unpaid vendor bill

Charles Lollar

The Washington Post reports:

A political database software vendor in Northern Virginia wants the campaign of Charles Lollar, one of four Republican gubernatorial hopefuls in deeply blue Maryland, to pay its bills.

The Lollar campaign hired Rocketbase Solutions of Herndon in September to set up a voter database and tracking system using information from the Maryland Republican Party. The campaign…

Does Anthony Brown really want every child to have a loving, caring home?

Does Anthony Brown really want every child to have a loving, caring home?

brown-startled

If you watch television in Maryland, especially during the local news, you’ve probably gotten very tired of Anthony Brown’s current commercial about adoption that runs twice in the same newscast some evenings. It offers no real policy solutions and is just a fuzzy feel-good ad about adoption. After all, who is against adoptions?

Of course, Brown is talking up adoption and says “every child…

From an email sent by Mike Hough’s campaign earlier today:

According to a Washington Post article on Friday, Maryland spent $90 million on healthcare exchange technology, which included a barely functioning website. Maryland has spent $130 million in taxpayer money on the failed healthcare exchange, with at least another $50 million to come in order to switch to Connecticut’s exchange.

David Craig campaign’s puzzling Twitter activity

David Craig campaign’s puzzling Twitter activity

The following retweet was made today by the David Craig campaign:

craig-tweets

I asked a source close to the Craig campaign for comment on why the campaign might have made this retweet and the source had no clue. It seems odd that a candidate for governor would make a retweet of a tweet originally made two days ago regarding a federal issue in another state (the Bundy Ranch situation.)

Follower numbers are…

Community College of Baltimore County sued for religious discrimination

The ACLJ reports that they have sued the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) on behalf of Brandon Jenkins. Jenkins was denied admission to CCBC’s radiation therapy program.

 As one faculty member explained to Brandon, on behalf of CCBC, the “field [of radiation therapy] is not the place for religion.”

Brandon first applied for admission to the Radiation Therapy Program in April 2013. He…

Could Heather Mizeur get an upset win in the primary?

Could Heather Mizeur get an upset win in the primary?

mizeur

Brian Griffiths writes about the possibility:

And all of this makes me wonder if this is Heather Mizeur’s race to lose. Like her and her ideas or not, her and her campaign have stayed above the fray when it comes to the negative campaigning and her focus has solely been on drawing attention to her campaign and drawing attention to her issues. Those issues put her very much in line with the…

Dan Bongino weighs in on the Bundy Ranch situation

dan-bongino

Dan Bongino, candidate for Congress in Maryland’s 6th District, weighed in on the Bundy Ranch situation in an email to his supporters:

Regarding the Bundy family in Nevada:

First, this is not a question of law, but the process by which laws are enforced and the methods used to enforce them. Sadly, many Americans are questioning if the process is fair, equal and apolitical in application?

Many…

Brown publicizes Republican support

Brown publicizes Republican support

robert-costa

If you read John Wagner’s story in WaPo on the reaction to yesterday’s comments on Anthony Brown’s military service made by Doug Gansler you’d see Republican Delegate Robert Costa quoted but no context on where the statement came from:

Among those rallying to Brown’s defense Monday was Del. Robert A. Costa (R-Anne Arundel), who said he found Gansler’s comments “appalling.”

“Lt. Gov. Brown and I…

What was Ron George’s press secretary thinking?

What was Ron George’s press secretary thinking?

ron-george-tapemeasure

Tommy Rodriguez, Ron George’s deputy campaign manager and press secretary, sent out a press release today. Rodriguez is yet another gubernatorial campaign press guy who is hostile to bloggers so I didn’t get it directly from the campaign, but I did manage to get it nonetheless.

Here’s the release:
