As you may know, Red Maryland recently endorsed Mike Hough for State Senate in District 4. At the time, some of our detractors, and even an ill informed friend, claimed that our endorsement was from a bunch of “out of town bloggers” and that folks in Frederick County all support Mike’s opponent. Of course, I grew up in District 4 and my family and my wife’s family still live there. Our founding editor Streiff also lives in the District. Many of the “local” supporters of Senator Brinkley do not have these same connections with District 4. But I digress.
Mike Hough received some additional endorsements from conservative elected officials who live in and/or have represented Frederick County for many years.
“I fully endorse Michael Hough because he is the true conservative in this race. Voters in Frederick & Carroll County deserve to have a conservative State Senator. You can count on Michael to stand for lower taxes, fight Obamacare, and out of control spending.”
“Michael Hough is the clear tested choice for conservatives in Frederick & Carroll Counties. Hough will fight back against liberals in Annapolis. I endorse my good friend Michael Hough for State Senate.”
Despite the wringing of hands and gnashing of teeth by moderate state Republicans, the voters in the June Republican primary in District 4 will know the records of the candidates and will find, as we have, that Mike Hough is the true conservative choice for State Senate.
