MD GOP Chair Diana Waterman joined in for Super Saturday in St. Mary’s County on September 13 and reminds us that the General Election on November 4 is less than 50 days away.

Do not be misled by the negative ads the Brown Campaign has been running against Larry Hogan. The new TV ad states, in part, that Larry is opposed to a law that keeps guns off our streets and that his “ dangerous Republican agenda” is the“wrong direction for Maryland.” Larry supports 2nd amendment rights. To check out Mr. Hogan’s platform, please contact his website to learn more: www.hoganforgovernor.com
