Josh Kurtz of Maryland Matters first reported today that the three incumbents in Legislative District 39 - State Sen. Nancy King and Dels. Kirill Reznik and Shane Robinson will be announcing that they are endorsing Lesley Lopez for the district's third House seat.
Earlier this session, we highlighted good bills that were a priority for our Delegates. Today, Delegate Christian Miele's (District 8, Baltimore County) veterans jobs bill passed both the House of Delegates and Senate.
Democrats have fallen into complete disarray as they're now turning fire on each other. More than a dozen House Democrats walked off the floor today and held a press conference outside of the State House to fight for the "Maryland Trust Act" also known as the Sanctuary State Bill.
Delegate Joseline Pena-Melynk (District 21, Prince George's County) went after Senator Bobby Zirkin (District 11, Baltimore County) and Senate President Mike Miller (District 27, Southern Maryland). This is a clear case of mainstream Democrats looking for bipartisan solutions by listening to the people being taken hostage by an increasing number of extremists in their party.
Fraud and corruption have been huge issues in the Maryland General Assembly, particularly within the Democratic Party. In just the last four months, four different Democratic members have been connected to using their position for personal financial gain. In response to this growing "Culture of Corruption," Governor Larry Hogan put forward House Bill 879 - The Public Integrity Act of 2017, which passed the Maryland General Assembly, and will now head to his desk to be signed.
