Busy and Productive Month

MichaelHiggsIt has been a busy and productive month for the Montgomery County Republican Party.  Our Conservative Author Series put on a very well attended event featuring Governor Bob Ehrlich. The Governor was extremely engaging and generous with his time, and we think him for coming to Montgomery County to speak with us. This past week a number of MCGOP-ers made the trek to Turf Valley for the state party’s Red White and Blue Dinner gala. We were fortunate to hear rousing remarks from Congressman Trey Gowdy and Andy Harris, and enjoyed the opportunity to network with fellow Republicans from across the state.

Our District teams have done a tremendous job providing manpower for the early voting sites over the past week-and-a-half.  Even though turnout was remarkably low (about 5% for Dems, 3.5% for GOP), proving yet again what a tremendous waste of resources early voting is, the MCGOP showed a strong presence in letting the voters know they have a choice. I want to extend a special thank you to David Drake and his District 15 team for organizing its Super Saturday event yesterday. In spite of the gloomy weather, the event turned out dozens of Republican volunteers and activists to go door knocking and spread the good word about our candidates. It is this type of hard work and dedication that will deliver victory in November as we seek to END ONE PARTY RULE in Montgomery County.

Speaking of our quest to END ONE PARTY RULE, I would like to call on all of our volunteers and activists to work hard thru Tuesday’s Primary Election to promote the candidate of their choice for Maryland Governor. But come Tuesday night, we must come together. We must respect the primary process and we must unite behind the winner. If you share in our desire to END ONE PARTY RULE, then we must all agree to work together to get Republicans elected at all levels of government. If you find the candidates emerging from the primary process do not support as many of your values and beliefs as you would like, then I suggest you get started identifying and recruiting candidates for the next election now. In the meantime, those Republicans emerging from the Primary on Tuesday deserve our full, unconditional support.
