Being a recently anointed Democrat, I am having some difficulty choosing whom to vote for in the primary. By the way I had a hard enough time deciding on the order of the title - so in typical Maryland style, I decided to list them simply in alphabetical order. {tongue firmly in cheek]

In one corner we have our venerable attorney general. Gansler (please hold all applause until the end, thank you.)

http://www.washingtonpost.com/rf/image_606w/2010-2019/WashingtonPost/2013/06/07/Local-Politics/Images/SSscene10-7%20%20%20%20%2000091349203514-434.JPG

And in the other corner we have our esteemed vice, er, Lt... Brown.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/rf/image_606w/2010-2019/WashingtonPost/2013/06/03/Local/Images/brown%20011370295971.jpg

Your opinions appreciated. But your activism and vote is what matters.


Are there any challengers from across the aisle?

Let the games begin. :)

Or vote for the Devil or Mephistopheles. In one corner we have the guy who will continue to tow the line set forth by his mentor (Brown) and in the other corner, we have the guy who said SB281 is completely constitutional, which is an affront to everything SCOTUS has said so far, like putting up a toll for a Constitutional Right.

Based on those two alone, I would have to lean towards Dougie. After all, as the AG, he did say we can open carry our rifles :envy:

I was at the one on 2/6 (after our BIGGEST rally) where he said "tens and tens" of people showed up to oppose the bill. I believe I was the last called on to asked questions, where I called him out saying we had more like THREE THOUSAND people and shut down the Senate building. Of course, he conceded that I was right... but he was DEAD WRONG. I had walked past him in Annapolis earlier in the day, so he knew damn well more than "tens of tens" took the day off to come down.

Someone with either a memory that short, or willingness to lie so blatantly should NOT be in public office. Would you let such a scoundrel be a governor? But I repeat myself...

History says it will not be Brown. the Lt. Gov has never been elected Governor.


BUT, lets not forget white guilt that gave us the most unqualified and anti-American President in US history. A city that elected Dixon and Rawlings-Blake will vote for anything. Anyone wonder what Rawlings Blake would be doing if her father had NOT been Howard Pete Rawlings? Maybe picking up the folded dollar bills when the last song is over?

This is what I'm hoping for. However, instead of an outright DINO; a more legitimate Democrat, the kind that I, heck, many of us could support.

There is enough time to solicit some of your moderate Democrat leaders, and up-and-coming 'undeclared' leaders. If one of them would run in the primary, it would be a hell-of-an-expensive and interesting race.

Whomever wins the Democrat primary has a huge advantage in the general election.

Your next Lt. Governor is Ken Ulman, Howard County Executive.

won the primary by 50 votes. This my friends is why voting in the primary matters so much.


from wiki:
Ulman first ran for political office in 2002, when he sought the District 4 County Council seat being vacated by former Council member Mary Lorsung. Ulman won the Democratic primary by 50 votes, and beat Republican opponent Joan Lancos in the general election.[4] [5] Ulman served a four-year term as a Council member in Howard County. In 2006, Ulman ran for County Executive against Republican Party opponent Christopher J. Merdon and independent candidate C. Stephen Wallis. A major theme of his campaign was his claim he played a role in preventing the closure of Columbia’s Merriweather Post Pavilion. Ulman won in the general election with 52 percent of the vote and was sworn in on December 4, 2006.
Ulman is Chair of the Baltimore Regional Transportation Board and Chair of the Baltimore Metropolitan Council. He serves on the Maryland Association of Counties' Board of Directors and the Board of Directors of the County Executives of America.
On June 3, 2013, Ulman announced that he would be running for the Lt. Governor of Maryland alongside Anthony G. Brown in 2014.

The key to being an effective DINO is watch and wait to see what unfolds then vote as a block. Until the primary is close you can't make a decision, when the time is close then you look at both the Democratic and Republican candidates to see if you will vote for the weakest Dem. or the Dem that will do the least damage to the 2nd Amendment. If the leading Republican is someone who has a legitimate chance of winning the general election then you vote for the weakest candidate. However, if it is certain the general election will go Democrat then you vote for the least damage to the 2nd Amendment.

Remember the primary is not just about the Governor, all the other positions are as important even local races because those are the people who will be moving up in the party ranks in coming years. Every race counts and every vote counts; vote conservative even if you loose because the vote counters will analyze who got what votes which will guide their planning in the future. If they see more conservative votes being cast in the primary along with increased crossover voting in the general election it will send a message, remember the real thing they are concerned with is getting elected and they will change their spots if they have to to get elected.

Also do not vote for anyone running unopposed or for judges "continuing in office" because they will win anyway but if very few people vote for the position it will encourage others to run for those positions. Finally if you don't know who the candidates are or politics they stand for then always vote the incumbent out because the less seniority they have the less damage they can do.

At this point we don't even need to think about Gansler vs Brown.

Since getting on the ballot only requires signatures , there will be at least one more off the wall Dem running. No mater if they are guano crazy , or belong to CPUSA and NAMBLA , we need to give support , and send donations to them. Our imeadate goal is to get them to poll enough above zero that Gansler and Brown will have to respond to them. Then as we get much closer to June , we can think about who to actually vote for.

This just in from MOM:

When Lt. Governor Anthony Brown and I were sworn into office in January 2007, Maryland's government was not working for middle class families because of you-know-who, and you-know-who.

But instead of making excuses [spending 7 years blaming others is not "making excuses"], we I came together and made better choices - and over these past seven years weI've been delivering better results:

Last year, we I led our region in job tax creation. WeI've made the waters of the Chesapeake Bay healthier, and we I just rolled out one of the most aggressive idiotic plans of any state to combat climate change. I also made Maryland a safer place for criminals to live and practice their trade, by making it harder for ordinary citizens to buy guns, and by eliminating the death penalty.

And, together [umm, well, except for Baltimore City, and PG County], weI've built America's #1 ranked public school system for an unprecedented five years in a row.

I established Maryland as a welcoming place for "new Americans" who come here by non-traditional means and who deserve in-state tuition rates because we know that they will vote D.

But if we want to continue delivering better results more government and less freedom, we you have to continue making better choices paying the country's highest taxes, and one of the most important choice$ we can make is electing Anthony Brown governor. Please join me and contribute a whopping $5 or more to his campaign today. I might give him another $5 down the road as well.

http://action.martinomalley.com/anthony-brown

Anthony Brown has been an essential part of the results we've delivered since taking office. He has my full support as we continue delivering for Maryland families. [Now that's damned with faint praise.]

If you agree with the choices we've made, like winning marriage equality and passing the nation's toughest laws to reduce gun violence keep people from exercising their Second Amendment rights, then let's get this done.

All the best, suckers.

First, I think she may be out there. There is only so much more ground to be gained in the gay rights 'fight', and none of her experience appears to be in actually DOING anything.

We know they are all progressive meatheads, but so far Heather Whozit is the weakest of the bunch. She will split the guilt-vote, but if Doogie picks a black for LG, then the black vote becomes a mess (especially since Brown can be seen as 'not black enough')

Second, they're not about to mess with a proven formula. Corey Booker, anyone?

I felt so dirty when I got my new voter card, no matter how many showers I take, I still feel dirty...

He's a bold-faced liar. I don't have any respect for thieves and liars.

David Craig is running and he's for Concealed Carry in Maryland. Bold.

I am not a fan of either of them and will not vote for Brown.

As Brown is the heir apparent, I say pile on the votes for Gansler. At the very least, Brown will have to spend more money in order to win, thereby reducing his war chest in a possible showdown with Lollar. Fantasy race: Lollar vs. Gansler..... If Lollar plays the race card correctly, he could take Baltimore and PG county. Slim chance but it's our only hope for this Godforsaken shithole of a state.

I know, I'm in the same boat. As a newly registered Democrat, I feel compelled to vote in the primaries in 2014...

If you weren't going to vote in the primaries as a D, then what's the point in changing affiliation? That's the whole point!

Any Republican will have a far better chance against pansy Gansy than Brown.

This is the type of thinking that all DINO's need to have, and to have a co-ordinated effort in doing so. Either a 3rd person comes into play that all come behind or voting for whoever a R will have the best chance against.

This! ^^^

Whatever we do, we ideally stifle the gag reflex and do it unanimously! AND we make it known that we did it, and let them wonder who's next for a dose of the same.

I'm definitely not voting for Brown or anyone else affiliated with the D party...out with the old, that includes you Barbara, in with those who see things our way. If they're not on the checklist I'll write in a name.

This election as most in MD will be decided in the primary. Ehrlich was a fluke and not likely to happen again for some time. IMHO

Good luck

Brown is a genuine idiot and a member of the 'weapons of war do not belong on our streets' caucus. Gansler is just a more radical version of Parris Glendening. As a DINO, I really am not sure at this point who should get my primary vote. I can't see myself voting for Ferris Mizuer either.

Here's a thought. Can we as DINOs throw it all in for Gansler at the primary and then let him know that we did so? This might keep us from having to buy Costco sized tubs of Vaseline if he wins the governorship (not wanting to bite the hand that fed him). Just a thought.

Personally, I think he is the one we should back at the primary, and then we should all vote Republican in November.

Primary, I'm still torn between Doogie and Manssier in the primary.

What's bugging me, though, is the presumption that a D WILL be the final result.

Yeah, we know the game is rigged... but how is there nothing better than turning the tables, and beating them at their own game???

If Gansler wins the primary,the ghetto dwellers won't be coming out in droves to vote in the primary. He'll get my vote in the primary's

Hasn't Gansler stated support for open carry of long guns in MD? (on my phone or would insert appropriate emoticon)

Relative to Brown, doesn't this position make him the pro-2A candidate of the two (his LG running mate notwithstanding)? Like an NRA rating of a D+ instead of an F.

Well, er, he said open carry of long guns was a sufficient reason for having G&S in place for concealed carry.

At least Gansler knows what the constitution says and means while he defiles it. :)

Yes, remember, the goal for DINO's is to get the Dem candidate (in the primary) most likely to LOSE to a REPUBLICAN in the general election.

I'm kinda hoping the republican will be Hogan.

Have you checked out David Craig? Hogans better?

Being a registered democrat I get to vote in the primary. Looks like Gansler is our best option, the vote for anyone who runs against him in the general election.

That usually equates to neutral or pro-RKBA. Remember, Maryland is a single-party state.

So, as a young person that still is void of the common cynicism, how do i apply? Thats what we need right? A younger person that is able to tip-toe all the demo agenda and still stand up for what is right, fight for our rights. As a multi-generation MD family, I don't plan on leaving any time in my lifetime, This is my ground and they will have to fight hard to get it from me. Ol' men, tell me what to do. How? I'm lost.
