Comments on Question 10: I do not know enough about the situation to make an informed decision. "Anthony Wiener" Syndrome All I do know is that members who spend a lot of time being POLITICIANS do not necessarily carry the FLAG of WE THE PEOPLE !!! He is from Western MD though and I have always liked the people from Frederick and Hagerstown area ... We lost a good man in the House of Representatives in Bartlett ! Another scandalized Republican in a position of power been there, done that Brinkley is a RINO But not a lot to choose from. Would love to see Getty and Jennings. David Brinkley has too many personal issues in his past, and was not an effective leader the first time he served. David Brinkley ISNT a minority leader, he was a news anchor David has the experience necessary to lead the caucus. He is a proven leader. Did not do enough to support the 2nd Amendment, did not do enough to make English the official language, supports illegal immigrants, doesn't support clean energy. Did not do enough to support the 2nd Amendment, did not do enough to make English the official language, supports illegal immigrants, doesn't support clean energy. Didn't know he was Minority Leader. Do not know him or about that well. Doesn't seem in touch with conservative base. Don't know much about him Experience. Great leader Great leader, very well respected. Have no info on him He failed to lead with integrity or produce results in the past. He should make way for new leadership that could try use different tactics and ideology to make progress for Marylanders who want responsible government. He has the most experienced and the main alternative who wanted the job voted for legalizing marijuana and is an arrogant ass he is a horrible choice. Chris Shank should of been the leader He is a RINO He is a vindictive person. The way he has treated Tea-Party Republican Kathy Afzali has been shameful, among other things. He is knowledgeable and effective. He is young and very smart about what is going on.

He votes for O'Malley's budget. You cannot have people in leadership who can be strong-armed into evil shenanigans such as these. He's a solid, likeable guy...I'm just hesitant as he seems to be a 'timid' personality...I wasn't the biggest fan of EJ but at least he had a set. He's just another spineless RINO who will cut deals with the Dems as long as he gets his own carve out. His past history of violence against women makes this choice a laughingstock. His spousal abuse record is an embarrassment I am not familiar with him I don't follow the state legislature closely enough to know. Furthermore, the GOP s so weak at that level that it cannot have a great influence on state issues and policies. I don't know enough about him or his voting record. I have never heard from him I HAVEN'T NEVER HEARD OF HIM. I like his ethics and his position on 2A rights. I looked him up on Project Vote Smart and agreed with most of his votes on issues. I would like to see someone lead with his track record. Except I entirely disagree with the state sponsoring gambling. I question Hersheys conservative credentials I wish he was more conservative. I'm not familiar with him. Intelligent, well-spoken, experienced, calm demeanor, not about self and will serve the greater good of the caucus. It doesn't make a difference. I've heard many things about Sen. Brinkley regarding his character. Not sure what's true and what's rumor. We shall see I suppose. just dont care for him Like the vast majority of elected Maryland Republicans he will not fight for our interests. He like the others has a defeatist attitude. They simply roll over for O'Malley. Likes to take and spend my money while using the phrase, "loyal opposition", providing very little. More of the Same Never heard of him. not a conservative leader Not aware of the selection Not conservative Not conservative enough not efffective, haven't heard a peep about him Not enough information Not familiar with David Brinkley

Not familiar with him Not framiliar Not very well known especially on the Eastern Shore. Proven leader. Business man and consensus builder. questionable voting record Really do not know much about him so I will refrain from comment Really, David "choke my wife" Brinkley. Can you be an adulter and abusive and upstanding politician all at the same time? What a leader! Respect from both parties RINO RINO Tax and spend Democratic Apologist Tax and spend RINO That guy is a good example of why we need term limits! There's twelve of them; it doesn't matter, and no one cares. To many personal issues. [Wife, Neighbors, ect.] Too many domestic violence issues. Too much baggage. Too short Too socialist Typical Maryland Republican - same old crap. Unless there's something I don't know about him, he's ALWAYS seemed, to me, to be very level-headed, fair-handed and objective. (I've always idolized E.J. Pipkin, but never knew, until this year, that he's pro-abortion, unlike me, who's pro-life.) voted for MOM's budget Wife beater. http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2008-0607/news/0806060338_1_brinkley-rustin-senator Comments on Question 12: Since I read the Capital daily, and have not seen any test about the Red Network Personalities-nor received any mail about it..why is there not more publicity about RMN? # 8 - Congressional candidates should take a salary IF they give up their regular job to run! #AlwaysGoWithTheHump All All of them! All of you remove ambient air pressure from the room equally well

Brian is the best analyst, both as a writer and a radio personality, in the state. He speaks truth to power Bring Braswell back But dont tell Jackie :) Despite my answer above, I am not undecided for President in 2016. I want South Carolina Republican Governor Nikki Haley. Rand Paul would be my second choice. In addition to an "Undecided" button, you should have an "Other" button for more accurate statistical results. Elizabeth myers Haven't been able to listen as much as would like to but I liked the commentary from all involved the times that I have listened. Need to get a little more NON PC with it though because the SIMPLE TRUTH is what is NEEDED !!! He knows his stuff. I do not know who these folks are and where they stand on issues. Also are these folks conservative or RINO's I do not watch TV any more. I have to say that I've never heard any of the rest of these folks (in question 12). I know none of these names. I like all you guys/gals. Brian is a bonehead, but I like him too ! I want a English official language, you provide your own translators and document at your cost not mine. Support Americans for jobs not illegal immigrants, 2nd amendment supporter and free choice - get government out of our lives. We are adults and can make and live by our decisions. I also registered as a DINO so I can vote out the democrats currently in office I want a English official language, you provide your own translators and document at your cost not mine. Support Americans for jobs not illegal immigrants, 2nd amendment supporter and free choice - get government out of our lives. We are adults and can meek and live by our decisions I was at Tawes and tried to say Hi to Greg Kline because I recognized him from Red Maryland Radio and he was a total Douchebag. Walking around frown faced and being an asshole to everyone, and ignoring them. Typical Lawyer. Brian Griffiths is spirited and nice to everyone, and funny. Jackie Wellfonder is cool too. Greg Kline needs to lighten up around strangers, and embrace everyone in the party, and community.

I would like to hear from Dave Wissing, if possible. He has a very successful blog and widespread recognition. I think he would lend credibility to Red Maryland. I'd rather not play favorites. If posts were for all GOP candidates, it would be ok by me, but some only post for their pick of candidates. That's not what this should be about. I'm new to Red Maryland I'm registered as an Independent Informative AND entertaining I've always been a democrat but this years passage of SB281 is just too much. I will not vote to elect or reelect any candidates who supported it, regardless of party. J.Doug Gill is a very close second, but all the others are good. Jackie is awesome too. Joe Steffen should be Personality Emeritus Love them all Maryland political leaders are chosen during the Democratic primaries not during the general election so I have gone DINO, registered democrat in order to have my vote somewhat count. Never forget Reagan's 11th commandment! Never listen. Never really listen to the online spots. Republicans don't have a voice of vote in the State of Maryland.....period. She is the only one that responds to my tweets! SUGGESTION: Red MD Training Camp for prospective candidates for County, State & Fed office; restore citizen representation with term limits, but build a pool of constitutional conservatives to replace those leaving office That hump! :-) essadee The dude abides. This is the first I've ever seen anything about RMN. To the best of my knowledge I have never listened to or watched an RMN station. Too tough to chose. Totally dig the way Derek Hunter thinks, though. We Need To Do A Better Job Now On Fighting Athoney Brown Or He Will Be Next Gov Of Maryland. I Would Not Focus AnyTime Fighting Martin Or AnY Candates Other Then Brown

Well that was certainly the hardest question on the poll ;) Also wish you gave an option to write in someone other than the current announced Republican candidates for Governor. Hogan 2014!! What network? What Personalitiies? wonderful women and great liberty voice in merryland. You should include "I don't know" as an option for congressional districts. It might be enlightening as many of us have to look it up because we were moved in the last gerrymandering map
