A discussion took place on a Republican Club of Frederick County group on Facebook that started out with a David Craig volunteer sparring with gubernatorial candidate Brian Vaeth and others about who won the debate, who was invited, and who the best candidate is. Things between the Craig supporter and Vaeth got a little heated and then Ron George joined the conversation.
George complained about not being informed of Friday’s debate (which only included David Craig and Larry Hogan and was closed to the media) and finding out about it 10 days beforehand. He also claimed that attempts to call the organizers resulted in no return calls and being up on once.
George then goes on to discuss a debate on March 26 in Montgomery County that he isn’t able to attend because the House will be in session. He claims to have been told he didn’t have to be in session by the organizers of the event two months ago when he asked if they could wait until after session was over. George also claims to have heard the organizers of the debate are Hogan supporters who did it to shut him out.
That event is the Chevy Chase Women’s Republican Club Forum on the 26th at Ted’s 355 in Rockville. Ellen Sauerbrey is the introductory speaker and Blair Lee is the moderator. They note that George will be in session but they don’t have Brian Vaeth listed at all.
