Brian Griffiths rules! Do a live remote in Garrett County Great reporting on Matthew Adams. He is a complete loser who doesn't bring any value to the party. I'm not a fan of Tari Moore either and I'm glad to see Red Maryland for the most part has stayed steadfast in opposing her selfish behavior Spot on in your selection of least valuable conservative Hope you guys can broadcast at Spring Convention out here in Western Maryland Don't take the haters to heart, you've got lots of fans on the Shore! Incarceration doesn't mean a person commited a crime of moral terpitude. Unconstitutional gun laws, civil disobediance, small amounts of pot at age 19, federal regulations, and many other things can result in incarceration. You should have listened to Schmigal. Keep it going. Great concept and fills a void. Thanks! Election Focus is a wonderful outreach for mdgop candidates. Well done. Keep kickin' ass and takin' names. Haters gon hate. Question #10 is poorly worded. Of course we should not endorse criminals, but it also depends on how the resolution is written and whether this important subject is something that should be handled by a resolution in the first place instead of a a bylaws amendment. Need to repeal confiscatory estate tax

I really is the business of the voters as to whether to support someone that has been incarcerated. Who am I to judge. Everyone makes mistakes. Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone. There needs to be a higher threshold for Republican statewide ballot access. There are too many unqualified candidates crowding these races. The Republican Party in maryland needs to step up their efforts. So far all I see is the resolve to lose more elections Cancel your partnership with the Sun! Great job, guys! Herb McMillan should be run out of office "If the Republican Nominee for President in 2016 is not Ted Cruz or Rand Paul, I will not be voting!" You guys need to prop up Heather Mizeur, a Republican could easily beat her! I think Red Maryland spends too much time fighting other members of the GOP instead of taking on the Dems. Yea the people who you have problems with have screwed up, but it seems you fight them more than the Dems. Honestly the in-fighting is why I'm not as active in the MDGOP as I could be. Herpes is the new SARS I am leaning towards chsnging to libertarian because the rrpublican party does not really want to address tax fairness and fkat rax Drop the social issues from the party platform. Specifically, same sex marriage and abortion. Tell people they are personal issues, not a party fight. Female registered republican with libertarian values. Question 10 is poorly worded - should we cast off candidates who engage in civil disobedience? I think not. Fiastro's resolution was overly broad -- I voted for it, but with reservations. The examples of Leopold and Dwyer are obvious, but you always need to be careful of unintended consequences. It's all for naught anyway, under Diana Waterman, the MDGOP has shown that it won't stand up for itself anyway so an endorsement from the party will be meaningless to any serious candidates anyway. Please do not just "tow-the-line" for the GOP. The tea party "faction" is probably more relative to the average citizen than the "Carl Rove" moderates that currently make up the majority of the leadership of the national party. Make sure that whoever the candidate for governor is can win, I would suggest Larry Hogan and Blane Young be ticketed together that way all parts of the state would be covered!!!

I'm deaf so I can't listen to the talk radio I would like to help make it easier for law abidding citizens to abtain concealed carry permits like the majority of the other states in the U.S. I have never heard of you. Republican in Maryland since 1997. Your outreach needs some work. I am not allowed to vote in the Republican primaries as I am a registered Democrat that believes this state has gone to far left and needs to change. make MD red! Didn't know about blog talk radio. Only when someone is on WBAL or Facebook Your presidential poll is a joke. Every single canddiate listed will lose to Hillary. I don't know where these questions are coming from Tom. #10 should have an alternate response. It is not cut and dry. There are variables. Think Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King..... Despite changing my voting registration from Independent to Republican several years ago, I have NEVER been contacted by ANYONE from the local Republican party. Why are you part of that communist paper, the sun? More like being co-opted and losing your edge. Nikki Haley/Brian Sandoval should be added to the list of Presidential contenders. Both good governors, and far better than listing Huntsman. Yes Maryland need to stop these bias gun laws. And make gun laws the same as federal laws. Stop the infringing reach of the law enforcement to basic guidelines like having a felony conviction not stopping people with misdemeanor convictions like myself. NO TO GOV. O'MALLEY! "I am a very conservative Republican who lives in P.G. County. I think it is more important we ELECT pragmatic and practical Republicans than keep losing with Tea Party members although philosophically I agree with much of their agenda.

    

We need to win more however and, to that end, I'd rather have moderate Republican nominees." I don't like Larry Hogan because I feel like he lies to the people by starting change Maryland only to run for governor. Charles Lollar is the only Republican candidate that could win governor seat in Maryland. 2A gun rights is an important crossover issue that can get a Dem to vote for a pro-gunrights Republican. Who is capitalizing on this? Nobody. "Defund, depose, deport despotic democRATS, Rinos, and their degenerate supporters.

My 2nd choice for POTUS would be Senator Ted Cruz." I'm concerned that your partnership with the Sun will distort your message and will not help the MDGOP. Support candidates that supports the US Constitution and restore the constitution to Maryland Kick the Dems to the curb. We are suffering here. All of our friends are fleeing to VA, DE, AND N&SC. Wasn't aware of Red Maryland but will definitely check it out. The Democratic party makes me sick to my stomach, I can't stand the tax and spend attitude. Please, take Maryland back. I love our state but hate the way its run. I had hope in Lollar, but have come to realize his campaign is a joke! LOL= Lollar When is Maryland going to start facing reality about the 80 billion UNFUNDED LIABILITY ISSUE? Or are we just going to continue to give it to OUR CHILDREN !!!! #1. Ted Cruz 2016 #2. Rand Paul in 2016 !!!! I have no idea how Republicans can make any headway in Maryland when you have so many fed. gov workers, various workers from State to counties to local governments who only look out only for their own abilities to suck from the public trough. Add to that all the "New Americans" aka. illegals and it becomes a steep hill to climb. Good luck. There may be a problem in the near future with question #10. Maryland's gun laws are worse than ever topped only by New York. I'm wondering how many decent Marylanders will find themselves on the wrong end of our stupid gun laws. YES: A few episodes (special election edition) of Red Maryland for the 2014 Maryland Primaries and General. But NOT a radio show, a broadcasted news analysis segment. Every Race in the state - highlighting the big ones the most obviously - Gubernatorial and Congressional. Live broadcast Red Maryland Network - Election Coverage Program. Live feed with your own monitor that brings up the stats, pictures, etc.. for the races, and you talk about them. On the conviction of Republican candidate question. It would depend on the circumstances Lollar 2014 Governor!! Love your guys show!! It is disappointing that two recently incarcerated Democrats from Prince George's County had the effective passive support of the Maryland Republican Party. Not sure why some Republicans are upset about the misdemeanors of Republican Don Dwyer, but won't even field candidates against Democrats like the Johnsons,. Your tweets are too partisan.

On the convention thing, why does the MDGOP have a convention before a primary and then after the general election? Wouldn't it make more sense to hold one convention after the primary election to help organize for the General Election. It's not rocket science. Didn't know this organization existed. That is a problem! Use email to summarize what was discussed on radio show. It takes me too long to listen to show and I may need just the highlights. Help! Stick together as Republicans whether moderate or not We need to stop fighting each otherand fight Democrats.We need to win to change policy. We need more main stream tv ads. WBAL radio is doing a great job and wish it channel 11 would get in board to change the minds if all the democrats in this great state. I'd like to have Republicans run a positive, business oriented campaign that tells the truth and gives multiple steps on how to solve the problems within our state. Suggest mainly focusing on 2-3 issues, similar to the ICC that Bob Erlich did, when he won. "For Pres. I like : Walker, Cruz, Jindal, Paul," The Republicans who are more conservative should consider that the Republicans must win elections, so please keep litmus tests to a minimum or Democrats will win. Please consider that Maryland is a blue state so far right candidates will likely not have the numbers to win. We need to keep a big tent ad Reagan did. Go Craig and Haddaway ...most experience team Don't be afraid to go into hostile territory to campaign. Too many Republicans avoid Baltimore city, Montgomery and Prince George's. If we're ever going to win statewide we have to change some minds in those places. Maryland needs to return to Liberty and personal freedoms. Maryland needs a recall amendment to remove bad elected officials. Republicans need to be more Libertarian leaning to beat the Democrats on Social issues. Thanks for listening. Keep up the amazing work! Partnership with the Sun is brilliant "Yea i think doug should be your only host." Stop the in fighting! The conviction thing is a witch hunt to ostracize Don Dwyer. This could easily apply to anyone who removed barricades at the WWII memorial during the shutdown if LEO's chose to act. Way to write the conviction/incarceration question to get the answer that you want. Our Country is screwed because of the powers in washington

Ask about our 2nd, 3rd pick for President (POTUS) Ron George for Governor and Ben Carson for President! you rock. Stop making stupid comments about social issues. Why endorse Democrats who should have been convicted? Marriage is one man one woman. Why are the Lollar people so rude to other candidates? Let's win and beat those Liberals! Make the Tea Party feel welcome. We are in this together. If the message doesn't get out that it takes a village (Coalition) to defeat the Democrats then we are just spinning our wheels. Every vote is important and none should be written off. Not if you want to win again. Please attend the MCGOP Christmas Party 12-8-2013 4- 7 pm in MOCO more information at http://mcgop.com/ai1ec_event/3rd-annual-mcgop-christmas-partyusmc-toys-for-tots-toy-drive/?instance_id=11238 I also think that our elected officials should live by the laws they are making. One which I find hard to believe is those that are caught with drugs but are allowed to return to work once they have fulfilled their obligation to the courts. For one I would be fired and I am a government contractor. I would not be pick up for another contract... EVER!!! Thanks for all you do! No I am glad to see there is an online site to see and read about red maryland at Zazzle.com. Do a better and fair job of evaluating all candidates that are running for a political seat na Keep up the excellent work! What is red maryland I changed from lifelong Republican to Independent this year. So sick and tired of disengaged uninformed self-serving party politics. What is the Red Maryland radio Larry Hogan will Change Maryland for the better!!! Keep up the good work! Republicans in Carroll County need to get involved. They are becoming overconfident. Stop attacking real Republicans you looser usurpers. FIRSTAMENDMENT NO APOLOGIES BOOM

Don Stanhouse is an asshole ways loading the fuckin bases, smoking cigarettes. Luckily we've got Timmy Stoddard coming out the bullpen breakin a bat off in their asses, and that's what it takes. nice going with the Sun Deal! I would encourage backing off the Lollar campaign. The issues you pick on are silly and have no reflection of the man or his policies. It makes you look bad. it should be easier to pull up Red Maryland from the news section. As of now I have to search for it. Regarding the question pertaining to a persons criminal record and public service. I have a very strong view on this because I have a criminal record and have been denied public service because of it. I am a law abiding patriot who enthusiastically seeks to help those in need. I made a mistake as an adolescent that severely limits my opportunities. I think there should be reform in the justice system so that individuals such as myself could make amends for past indiscretions without permanent record scarring. Have a great day. Go Lollar RE #10 It would depend on what the official was convicted and incarcerated for. IE Possession of Pot in youth? DWI convictions and has since stopped drinking. People don't have any idea on what they can do to help. You need to spread the word to help incorporate change!! FIGHT HARDER DAMN IT! I'M TIRED OF LIVING IN A ONE PARTY STATE!!!!! "I hate Maryland. Want to move asap. Why do you ask me who I would vote for in AA Co when I am in Harf Co?" Brian Griffith is so cute! CHANGE MARYLAND This is how I'm voting in the general.Canidates I cant vote for I'm endorsing. Reg. Democrat. ( DINO ). Please post more on your blog....many of us don't have time to listen to broadcast radio, including your own. Making me say who my choice is in Anne Arundel County and the 6th district, when I live in Harford County and the 1st district, is dumb. Fix your survey. Keep up the good work!

After hours of sub zero temperatures and a few close calls with hungry wolves, one blonde finally turned to the other and said, “I’ve had it. I’m chopping down the next tree I see. I don’t care whether it’s decorated or not!”" No did not know you were here We need a change no more taxing We need someone who has the brains to stand up for our 2ammendent rights Maryland is a Tax mess created by liberal Democrats. I am considering moving out of this State because of Taxes, silly guns laws that have no impact on crime, only honest law abiding folks. The Democrat agenda both in Washington and in Annapolis sickens me. I was a life long Democrat. I have been cured of that. I would like to see a survey on having a state constitutional convention. I believe it would put the Democrats on the defensive for the 2014 elections. "Why isn't Mike Huckabee on the 2016 list? I put up 70 yard signs for him in Howard and Carroll County polling places in the late and then very early in the light snow on that Feb 2008 primary, then drove around for about 5 hours in pouring rain the day after the primary with my kids in the car picking up as many of them as I could. Drove them to Vienna, VA so that a Pikesville man could collect the VA, MD signs and drive them out to the midwest for use in the next primaries. All of this was spontaneous grass roots...apart from the campaign.... except for getting the signs from them in College Park. I gave $1200 to his campaign...the most ever to any candidate in my life.... in $25, $50 increments over the course of the primaries. I truly believe Mike Huckabee is good government and can work with and appeal to everyone who wants their government to stop doing more harm than good and truly help people by giving them a government that is not using them to build power bases. Huckabee and Clinton jointly celebrated the 40th anniversary of the desegregration of schools in Arkansas with the people who 1st participated in that.... in person and by opening the doors of the school for them, 1 current governor, 1 former governor. I believe it was at the time. Mike Huckabee 2016... I would love to attend his inauguration in Jan 2017." We need to support both GOP & Tea Party nominees, or we will continue to lose to the democrats. Charles Lollar is who I'd support as Governor. We need to get these old career politicians out of power, they are killing us and future generations. "Please, do something! I'm ""this close"" to moving out of blue MD" We need to remain UNITED to PRINCIPLES I'd like to see Ben Carson on the Presidential Candidate list of yours.

I think the Republican party needs to show that it companions the poor through better schools for their children to raise them up from poverty. We need to change the dialogue from here let's give you stuff to they think so little of you that you will be satisfied being slaves to the goverment programs. What have these program done for anyone? Western md I thnink the toilet is full. It should be flushed. We had better get more closely aligned with the Tea Party ideals, and get the Demo Machine OUT of Maryland. How about Rand Paul and Charles Lollar as running mates for 2016? The Republican Party needs to clean house. They have picked the nominee for the last two elections, McCain and Romney. I had to hold my nose and vote for both of them. Next time if they pick Christie, from New Jersey, I will not even waste my time. To me, elections boil down to who is the lesser of the two. On all levels, our elected officials do not represent the people that put them in office. They only represent themselves and the special interest groups. What is the definition of a politician? A professional liar. The republicans that bailed on the last funding stand off should all be trashed! McConnel and Boehner are chicken poop and now they stand up for the disjunction they all knew would ensue. It is congress that runs the purse not Obama or Reid or pelosi. MERRY CHRISTMAS I wish people with the reach would defend republicans. I feel like they have been a punching bag since 2002 Where can I find information on MD candidates? Why can we not have Romney as an option again? Keep Christie of my ticket please!!!!! The vitriolic rhetoric that Red Maryland chooses to use turns off moderate Republicans, dramatically reducing the volunteer and voter pool available to the Maryland Republican party. Maryland needs change, the democrats and Owe'mally have ruined this state !!! Rand Paul 2016! no Congratulations on landing the Baltimore Sun gig. It's gives us a long overdue voice in this state. I am registered Democrat, only to vote for the person least damaging to the Republican or Libertarian party. keep up the good work. O'Malley needs to go. I don't agree how the Republican Party decides the nomination for the party.

Keep up the good work. Keep exposing the hypocrisy of the one party state No Get stinking illegals out of this state Keep fighting-another dem governor is going to bury us! Ben Carson for President, the rest are political templates. Thank for this information. I will check it out. One mdgop convention per year makes financial sense. It is stupid that we have two per year. Keep up the good work we need to unite teh party and speak as one, The D's tear us apart BRING BACK BRASWELL I'd really like a real outsider to run for Governor. Not a joke outsider like Lollar, Bala, Vaeth, but somebody who understands politics but doesn't play by the same rules Draft Greg Kline for Attorney General! You guys were too easy on Phil Dacey Don Murphy-Doug Gill 2014 for the stoner vote The MDGOP should also not support Tari Moore. It's sad and pathetic that she abandoned the party that supported her and she should've done the honorable thing and resigned, but that assumes that Tari Moore has honor which she doesn't I'm from Somerset County so I'm not surprised that Matt Adams mouth wrote checks his ass couldn't cash Griffiths for Governor! It will be a cold day in hell before I vote for Charles Lollar for anything Hoping a real conservative/Republican runs against Tari Moore in 2016 MDGOP can't give up on Montgomery County Don't let the haters get you down. Red Maryland provides an invaluable service to conservatism and the Maryland Republican. I can't imagine where we'd be without you na /this is first time I've heard of RMN Help the Republican party unite and quit the crazies insisting on a 3rd party. We have a one party monopoly and it has to end. Starting a third party is Mike Miller's dream child. Folks need to be smart, circle the wagons, and fight like hell. WE NEED A BETTER SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEMS FACING MD THAN WE ARE GETTING I'd like to see Mykal Massie run for President or VP Go Ron George!

Why are you only focused on Governors, Bongino and AA County? Ar eyou interested in any other races in the state? Change up the questions, these are getting boring. When the Republican Party becomes a Big Tent party, embracing, without name-calling, all Republicans, I will contribute in every way I can, including financially. But until that time, this splintered and mean-spirited party has a long way to go before it gets my vote. Not 100% of my congressional district First thing you need to do is explain in detail, plain language what your goals are. How to plan to do them, in it's simplistic forum Please take this state back, I have had enough of the liberals taking over, I want my constitutional rights back and not trampled, and I want fair taxes and gambling out of the damn state. This state has become unsuitable for children nope Get the dems out at any cost!! The only hope for Western Maryland is to secede from the rest of the state. Maryland Republicans have little if any impact on state politics. Witness the most previous legislative session. No but that we need to change Maryland! There are many good candidates up for the 2016 Presidential election. Also, some out there that haven't made a decision (Ben Carson comes to mind from his appearance on Jeanine Pirro Saturday nite on FNC). Maryland Republicans need to work on their "Platform" year round and keep it public 100% of the time and make sure that every Marylander is aware of it! So often elections come around and people are just finding out what we stand for. Build it now and tweak it before the convention or conventions. Thank you and let's SAVE Maryland !!!!!! I do not know anything about Red Maryland. Never heard of it. I'm Libertarian, not a Republican, sry. I will try listening to the Blog and radio. vote Herb McMillan from office It's to early for me to make 2014 voting picks. Need to learn more about who or what I'm voting for. Need an additional answer for #10. While it's easy to say NO for convicted felons, would prefer an option for 'need to evaluate on a case-by-case basis.' Change Maryland seems to be the only unified and relavent opposition to the Maryland Liberal power base. Just an opinion.

Wasn't aware of Red Maryland. I knew about Change Maryland. Wasn't aware of the number of republican candidates or their names. Thanks for a list so I can now research them and make an informed decision. I was not aware of Red Maryland, now that I am I will be checking it out a lot ore often Ben Carson for President the best and the only one that can win I didn't know Red Maryland existed. Maryland's Republican Party is apparently deaf and mute. The "same old" approach that has failed so many times must be reinvented! Think outside the box and find a way to reach or offset the unfair advantage of Baltimore and Montgomery County. It's not just an Election, the future of Maryland is at stake! vote Herb Mcmillan out of office I believe Charles Lollar is our only chance to with this state back! Anyone else running will just be wasting their money! Question # 10 is too broad when it comes to convictions. I have no problem with not endorsing a person that his incarcerated after being convicted of a crime. "To win, I believe the Maryland Republican Party needs to lay out in detail their proposed Md. budget for the 1st year under a republican governor and discuss in detail changes in both expenditures and revenue. It is a loser to say we are going to reduce waste to cut costs without explaining exactly what is to be cut and what jobs will be lost. We all know that remaining general means nothing will be done. Sam Davies" Too far right is as bad as too far left... Do something about the rain tax and all the other taxes in MD. We need to exploit Obamacare and all the taxes. AND MAKE SURE THE ELECTION is legitimate. The law says you must have an ID. Never have they asked for that. Go back to paper ballots that can be recounted and verified. get O'Malley out of here.... We need a focused, consistent plan of action that negates the position of whateverpolitics. We also need candidates with a CLEAN background! Honestly I will vote for any republican candidate, I just don't think anyone can win. The majority of Marylanders are a poor example for Capitalism and Democracy. As of now if he were running I would vote for Ben Carson for president! Help! This state and country are being destroyed by the liberals. Am a former republican, switched to conservative independent & wish to stay that way. I really don't want to be labeled by ANYTHING from MD. CHANGE MARYLAND!!!! STEVE SCHUH!!!

There is a significant interest in the recent onerous firearms laws, yet conservative candidates rarely mention it. Many gun owners are voting DINO in the primaries. It is a large voting block being ignored.... Concentrate on exposing waste and debt Many registered republicans are libertarian. The party needs to speak one message consistently.less government, more capitalism. Stop with the social issues! That turns everyone off! Come up with real solutions. Don't just run on bashing old Marty and his crew. I am in independent after watchi8ng the R party blow what have been winnable elections by trundeling out the same old candidates with the same old, non functional solutions. I really can't stand the d's but the R's aren't far behind. You can start earning my respect by sponsoring useful, effective pro environmental legislation. I would like to see Dr. Ben Carson run for president I am supporting the Run Ben Run campaign as I want Ben Carson to run for President. the way the rnc treated the ron paul supporter was deplorable I'm not living in the 6th district but I voted Bongino anyway. Maybe I'll move there. ;) Go REPUBLICANS. Yea Waiting for Nic Kipke to run for Governor. Change MD "W. T. F. Win. Then. Fight. We have to get the party together when then fight among ourselves if necessary but when first" Let's get O'Malley and brown out now Make MD a must issue handgun carry state When MDGOP distances itself from "TeaParty" they do the will of the tyranical DNC Continuing grassroots activism in tough areas such as Montgomery, PG, AA, Howard, and Baltimore City are necessary to spread the conservative message. The party needs to get rid of their old mindset of thinking & the old leadership. Get your act together I think your blanket rules for Representatives who have been convicted of a crime without further consideration is wrong and bog government mentality!! It would make anyone fearful of taking a risk even for political purposes! No I am a Democrat for Laura Newman and have to change my party to vote for her in the primary. 2014 is going to be a great year for the GOP Thank you for the hard work!

I'm a registered Independent, and apparently cannot vote in Primary. I have to change my affiliation to Republican in order to vote. Not thrilled with this, but will do it in order to get these Democrats out Maryland! Get a good grassroots going so we can turn the state red. Love your shows. I learn things I don't hear anywhere else. I especially like to hear info about the Md. candidates for Governor. WE MUST ELECT REPUBLICANS AND TAKE THIS COUNTRY BACK--IT IS ESSENTIAL. Fruitcake! Very happy that Pantelides won as Mayor of Annapolis. Yes, the Republican Party will have difficulty winning unless they add diversity to their party and become a more inclusive party instead of an EXCLUSIVE party. You will never win unless you embrace the diversity of the county, state and nation. This party will never survive if you continue to keep it lily white. Why do Marylanders keep electing Democratic Jerks NO More Jackie Wellfonder, less Andrew Langer. Would like to see transcripts of your shows. First I'm not sure if I'm still in District 3 after the Governor's change efforts, so I apologize. I inherently suspect any alliance with the Baltimore Sun (aka the Calvert and Center Street Democratic Club Newsletter). Ron George is the right man for the job. The others are a waste of time and resources. Please - come togther around a single purpose and stop the Busch/Miller bulying and insanity If the same folks are going to both conventions then go to one. If one is college and younger people that would be good for the base. Just became aware of this website.
