Frank Kratovil And Andy Harris On TV

November 2, 2008

Maryland’s District 1 candidates for the House of Representatives have been exchanging negative advertising on the Eastern Shore for weeks. Despite the hot race to replace Rep. Wayne Gilchrest, I think both Frank Kratovil, the Democratic candidate, and Andy Harris, the Republican, have stayed on the high road, focusing their negative advertising on the issues, […]

Democrats Swamp Republicans in Maryland

November 2, 2008

0

In Maryland, 320,247 new voters were added this year, bringing the total of registered voters to more than 3.4 million. As might be expected, given the popularity of Sen. Barack Obama in Maryland, voters registering in the Democratic Party outnumbered by more than 5-1 the voters registering as Republicans. Tom Wilson has an excellent analysis […]

Question 1 on the Maryland ballot would allow early voting. What a concept! Why didn’t we think of this before? Thirty other states already have early voting. Why is Maryland so far behind the curve? — Bernie Hayden

Give John McCain The Edge In Presidential Debate

October 7, 2008

John McCain won the debate, I thought, but it was far from a decisive victory. The economic portion of the debate was anticlimactic. Both candidates were underwhelming, considering the magnitude of the economic crisis. McCain proposed that the government immediately buy bad home loan mortgages and adjust them to reflect lower real estate values. His […]

Frank Kratovil vs. Andy Harris On The Eastern Shore

September 13, 2008

You see a lot of Andy Harris signs on the Eastern Shore, but I doubt that Eastern Shore voters will be suckered into voting for Harris. They know where Harris lives. You also see a lot of Frank Kratovil signs on the Shore. Kratovil’s campaign has received a big boost with the endorsement of Rep. […]
