John Leopold Walks Away
John Leopold’s 52-year political career has ended not with a bang, but with a whimper.
After getting blown out in the 2018 Republican Primary for Delegate and after abandoning a nearly-launched run for Board of Education, Leopold has filed a final campaign statement with the Maryland State Board of Elections, which will close his account.
In the report, below, Leopold formally forgives the last of the tens of thousands of dollars he loaned to his campaign over the years.
Since the report that Leopold filed was the 2021 Campaign Finance report, it is still theoretically possible that Leopold could change his mind before next January. But for now, it appears that the Republican Party and Anne Arundel County is finally rid of him.
