The Five Republicans Who Voted for the Slots Amendment
According to the Baltimore Sun Special Session Blog:
D. Page Elmore, R, Somerset & Wicomico Counties
Richard K. Impallaria, R, Baltimore & Harford Counties
A. Wade Kach, R, Baltimore County
James King, R, Anne Arundel County
Richard B. Weldon Jr., R, Frederick & Washington Counties
As we noted earlier King and Kach were already weak links. If just two of these Republicans had stayed with the party leadership, we could have been talking about a possible defeat of the the tax increases.
Kudos to Nic Kipke for standing fast.
