Charles Lollar’s Running Mate Woes

Charles Lollar

I previously reported on Ron George and Charles Lollar both still not having a running mate on their ticket in the Republican primary for governor.

Lollar, who still hasn’t officially filed as a candidate for governor, has asked at least four people to be his running mate and those four people all turned him down. The four rejections include Delegate Ron George (another candidate for governor), Anne Arundel County Executive Laura Neuman, birther and former congressional candidate Brandon Rippeon, and candidate for delegate Ken Timmerman. Another rumored running mate for Lollar was failed congressional candidate David Vogt, who is now running for delegate. I’ve heard Lollar’s ego issues have been at play in some of these discussions, especially in the case of Ron George.

Lollar has at least one person who would be willing to be his running mate:


Coleman is a potential candidate for Caroline County Republican Central Committee. As I said before, maybe Lollar can put an ad on Craigslist or a notice in the MD GOP weekly email that he’s looking for a running mate. If nothing else I’m available to be his running mate.

  1. To be fair, it must be hard to choose a running mate in Maryland. You never know who all the scholars on Facebook are labeling an establishment person or a rhino or a whatever other derogatory label Republicans are using on each other.
