Pipkin Seat Still Up In The Air, As GOP Committee Reneges; Harris Denies Involvement

The internal party struggle over filling the Senate seat vacated by Sen. E.J. Pipkin in District 36 on the Upper Shore remains in flux as freshman Del. Steve Hershey of Queen Anne’s County secured the official vote of the Kent County Republican Central Committee on Thursday.

This reversed a Tuesday vote that went to Audrey Scott, the 77-year-old Queenstown resident and former Republican State Party Chair, who some people involved in the process claim has been the choice of U.S. Rep. Andy Harris.

UPDATED: Harris put out a strong statement Friday afternoon denying he was supporting anyone in the race.

They better get a replacement for Rich Colburn now that he's been caught with his hand in the till.
