You also voted for Anthony Brown. Jus sayin’... 🤷🏽‍♂️  How well do YOU understand MD politics?

I voted the party line bro. I didn't care for Brown or Hogan.

I was aware towards the end that Brown's campaign had no enthusiasm while Hogan gained momentum...

If I don't like my choices I vote the Party line. I didn't care for Brown but I didn't like Hogan as a candidate either.  

Hogan has exceeded my expectations and might get my vote this time.

That is very reasonable.

Might, eh ....

Given your blind loyalty to anything the democrats do I doubt that.....

I didn’t like Hogan or Brown either, but I care about my home state too much to have voted for someone who I thought was incompetent just because he’s a democrat too.

Policy-wise I agree with the Democratic platform at least 80% of the time. So why wouldn't I just support the generic Democrat if there are no more attractive choices?

Brown wasn't exciting. Pretty boring. Didn't do anything to get out of the shadow of O'Malley. I didn't think he was incompetent though. 

You're entitled to your opinion though (including your bias against Brown because he's originally from NY or something :lol:)

MOM endorsed Baker today. Haha...

 

Well that could mean two things:

  1. It could be the kiss of death
  2. Or it will generate enough extra votes from the 'free stuff' crowd to get Baker over the top. 

Coin toss.

I would be VERY  interested to know the 20 percent you don't agree with.

Just differences of opinion on the policy nuances of Immigration, Gun Control, Minimum Wage, and Foreign Policy.

Hogan is more of a Democrat than a Republican. He's moderate. That's why I like him and Conservatives do not but they will vote for him again. The last Republican governor let his arrogance ruin his chances to win a second term. I didn't vote for him the second time.

Hate to say it but that sounds like the entire dem platform. :D 

Again..if you don't mind....what in particular don't you like (what ever small part) of what the dems want for a Gun Control plank. And  I promise I am NOT looking to derail and promise just to accept what you say....as you say it.

I'm not against the Dems broadly on those issues. It's just the details of the Dem policies where I somewhat differe from the mainstream. 

Like Minimum Wage for example. I don't oppose raising it but I don't think it should be $15 nationally. It's something that is best decided by local jurisdictions.

Ok....I get the 'bits and pieces' part....I look at all candidates dem and republican the same way...which one has the most positive bits and pieces that I favor and make a decision.

However, I was most curious about your thoughts on gun control. Sort of my 'thing' like hst is race and socialism. PM me if you wish.... I am just curious to get some insight from 'the other side' . I do try and look at both sides.

Many thought he was incompetent and not very bright. Hence the comparisons to KKT. 

That bias wasn’t initial. I was pro Brown very very early. Then in the primaries, the more I saw of him, the dumber I thought he was. That’s when I decided to support Mizeur. His NY accent was just grating, and it seemed to magnify his shortcomings.

Judging by the tenor of the posts here....overall …. I would say there are way more dem gerbils then rep gerbils. Just by body count. 😎

That was my thought as well. "Smart-on-paper" (Harvard undergrad and Law School), and a sparkling resume (Iraq War vet as a copter pilot, and then a Colonel in the Reserves). But he was not politically savvy, had few achievements (and at least one boondoggle) in his years in government, and had an off-putting (IMO) public-speaking style.

I voted for Mizeur in the primary and then Hogan.

What's even more interesting is that it means that all three of you are registered Democrats. I find that surprising in 2 out of 3. I would have pegged rg as a Republican and Guido as unaffiliated. Hope that doesn't insult anyone. Just my observation based on reading posts.
