Senator Salling is ready to participate in the debate with his opponent, saying “I am glad to participate and to discuss the failures of the Democrats in Baltimore. I am ready to give the people of Maryland’s 2nd congressional district a chance for new representation. The Democrats have failed to keep the police funded, stop the destruction of property, and provide basic assistance to the decaying neighborhoods in Baltimore. I look forward to debating Dutch on these topics.
