State Senator Kathy Klausmeier now has a Republican challenger in November if she manages to get by her primary opponent. Former Republican Delegate John Bishop filed to run against her in the Democratic primary before last week’s filing deadline. Bishop was a delegate in District 9 from 1987-1995.
Now, today, Erik Lofstad has filed to run as a Republican after being appointed by the Baltimore County Republican Central Committee. Lofstad is a graduate of Towson University and works as a business analyst at Loyola University.
Klausmeier’s atrocious voting record shows how out of touch with the voters in her district she is. A primary against a more conservative Democrat could soften her up for November.
