Tonight, the Maryland Coalition for Life and Defend Life are hosting a gubernatorial candidates forum in Germantown. Congressman Andy Harris is the moderator of the forum. I had information on this previously, but wanted to confirm who was planning to be there before I wrote about it. My information indicates that David Craig and Charles Lollar are both attending. Ron George reportedly has a scheduling conflict and won’t attend. Of the other candidates, I’ve heard Doug Gansler replied he wouldn’t be attending and other candidates ignored the invitation.
It’s not a surprise that Heather Mizeur and Anthony Brown are skipping it. It really isn’t a surprise that Larry Hogan is either. All three of the Democrats got 100% ratings from Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington. Craig and George have long definitive pro-life voting records, and Lollar has a record of pro-life support.
Here’s the flier for tonight’s event:
Quinton is a native South Carolinian who has lived in Baltimore since 2006. He is a recent convert to the Catholic Church and is active in the Knights of Columbus. He has been involved in the pro-life movement nationally and locally since 2010.
Quinton is a veteran who served as an intelligence analyst in the Army National Guard. He is also an Eagle Scout.
