Madaleno Running For Governor

Montgomery County state Sen. Richard Madaleno is running for governor.

The lawmaker, currently the vice chairman of the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee in Annapolis, kicked off his campaign with a news conference at the Universities at Shady Grove in Rockville.

While a vocal critic of Gov. Larry Hogan on education funding and other budget issues, Madaleno is best known as the sponsor of the Marriage Equality Act, which legalized same sex marriage in Maryland. The measure was passed by lawmakers and then approved by voters in 2012.

Madaleno told WBAL NewsRadio 1090 that he is trying to make history in a number of ways in his run for governor.

Madaleno says he is seeking to become the first openly gay governor in the nation, along with the first Italian American Governor of Maryland, and the first sitting legislator to be elected as governor in more than 100 years.

Well the Eastern Shore has no influence in who get elected and who doesn't but never in a million years would I vote for this guy. Never!

He's more interested in fighting Trump and Hogan than what's best for the state! Typical dumbocrat moron - but I repeat myself!

Maybe he will ask Liberal Jim to be his running mate.

If he expects people to vote for him BECAUSE he is gay, then he should have no objection to me voting against him BECAUSE he is gay. Works both ways, as an issue.

Another involved with budget wanting to run for higher office. HOW BOUT DO YOUR JOB first?

He or another democrat will win since so many "republicans" say they won't vote for Hogan because of CCW issue.

Let him join a circus instead. He's more fit for a job in a sideshow.

He's surely going after the Italian American and Gaymerican votes. What else does he have but identification with minorities?

This state is so screwed up he actually has a chance at getting elected! Sad state of affairs that this is what we have for our future leaders.

Not even American Italians would vote for this dudette. His biggest accomplishment is what, gayness? And of course as a proud Democ-rat he has done nothing positive for the constituents, except screwing the Taxpayers while giving out welfare handouts. Hogan ain't perfect, but he is Whole Lot Better than another Socialist from OweMalley's Clan. Just remember, if you want to
Make Maryland Great Again, Vote the Democ-rats Out!

He increased the earned income tax credit. Plenty of you qualify for it.
