As promoted here, tonight the Montgomery County Republican Party hosted the first candidate’s forum for the three candidates for Maryland Republican Party Chairman. Red Maryland’s own Greg Kline dominated the forum, the only candidate with a plan for how to transform the Republican Party and a solid plan on how to pick up seats in the General Assembly. The only Chairman that was sitting on the dais tonight was clearly Greg Kline.
Marcus Alzona taped the entire thing using Google hangouts. You can check it out below:
Collins Bailey did a fair job himself. Diana Waterman however did stumble a few times, and many in the audience (including myself) were not aware until tonight that her Republican Party activism only began in 2005, which really hurts the argument of her surrogates that she is the “most experienced” candidate in the field. But for me, many questions still remain after tonight’s forum about the decision making process within the State Party, especially as it relates to the South Carolina caper and the Nicolee Ambrose decision.
