Dou­glas is only qual­i­fied GOP Se­nate can­di­date

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

There are 14 Repub­li­can can­di­dates on the bal­lot, but only three se­ri­ous con­tenders ac­cord­ing to ma­jor news out­lets and polling: Chrys Kefalas and Kathy Szeliga, both from Bal­ti­more, and Richard Dou­glas who re­sides in Col­lege Park.

I sup­port Richard Dou­glas for the U.S. Se­nate and I hope you will as well. He is the only one of th­ese can­di­dates who can beat [Democrats] Donna Ed­wards or Chris Van Hollen in Novem­ber on his own mer­its and mes­sage.

The Dou­glas cam­paign is a grass­roots ef­fort. Dou­glas sup­port­ers rec­og­nize he has the core com­pe­ten­cies and grav­i­tas to rep­re­sent Mary­land’s in­ter­ests on the na­tional stage in Wash­ing­ton, D.C. They know we can­not af­ford to send a rookie to the U.S. Se­nate for on-the-job train­ing while Mary­lan­ders strug­gle to find jobs and pay taxes.

Dou­glas has a depth of knowl­edge, pro­fes­sional ex­pe­ri­ence, and world­view that is un­matched by his op­po­nents. He can stand on the U.S. Se­nate floor and speak elo­quently and with au­thor­ity on the crit­i­cal is­sues fac­ing Mary­land and our na­tion. He is well versed on is­sues as di­verse as job cre­ation, taxes, na­tional se­cu­rity, mil­i­tary oper­a­tions, vet­er­ans, im­mi­gra­tion, in­ter­na­tional trade, and for­eign re­la­tions. The en­dorse­ment of Am­bas­sador John Bolton is not too shabby ei­ther.

Mary­land needs Richard Dou­glas and he needs your vote on April 26.
