Rumors and News about a possible run for US Senate

Maryland will elect a new US Senator in 2016
"A serious contender could be Del. Kathy Szeliga..."

If you missed the buzz this week, this email should bring you up to speed. I have been exploring a run for the US Senate seat that has been held by Barbara Mikulski. Senator Mikulski is retiring.

The Baltimore Sun article gives some great background:
Republican Lawmaker Mounting Campaign for Senate

"'We have the right message; it just has not always been communicated well,' said Szeliga, 53, a Perry Hall woman who was first elected to the General Assembly in 2010. '
Over on the Democratic side, voters can pick one career politician or another.'"

The Washington Post covered the story:
Baltimore lawmaker moving toward U.S. Senate campaign in Maryland

"As a small business owner, mom and new grandmother, Kathy understands the concerns of Maryland families," Harris said in a statement. "She will bring fresh leadership and will help change Washington the way Governor Hogan is changing Maryland."

The Capital Gazette is covering the race too:
Donna Edwards calls for six debates with Van Hollen

"A serious contender could be Del. Kathy Szeliga, R-Baltimore County, who has been weighing a Senate bid, reported The Washington Post. Her decision is to be made this fall."

I am honored and humbled by the support and encouragement I am receiving from across the state! This will be a tough race. We know that Marylanders like a tough working class woman from the Baltimore region - and I can fill those shoes. Stay tuned ...

What a beautiful woman. Mikuski is a troll that lives under a bridge!

Perry Hall is a wealthy area. Stuck up folks round there. Lot of crooked businesses as well. I'd be weary about any candidate from there.
