Josh Kurtz wrote a column at Center Maryland on Friday night’s events at the MD GOP convention and then followed that up with an assessment of the Governor’s race.
Here’s an excerpt, with the implication being David Craig, Ron George, and Larry Hogan are the three “serious conservatives”:
If nothing else, the Republicans can at least offer the voters three serious conservatives – Lollar’s campaign seems delusional at this early stage – with a record of public and community service who have thought a lot about governing and how to make the state better, whether you like their ideas or not.
Kurtz has been writing about Maryland politics since 1995 and went to Columbia University’s Journalism School. He’s recognized by many as one of the best political writers in the state.
