Campaign Update | March 4, 2022

March 4, 2022

Although February is the shortest month of the year, our campaign used each and every day to its fullest!

It was a busy and exciting month – jam-packed with great announcements and a number of events across the state.

Our campaign made some news, and I announced my running mate and your future lieutenant governor. Lt. Colonel Dr. Jeff Woolford.

Jeff has served our country and our state honorably – he’s spent over 30 years in the United States Air Force, served in Governor Hogan’s administration, he’s an entrepreneur, a husband and father, and a proud Marylander.

We’re excited to have Jeff join our team, and I can’t wait for you to meet him. He is going to make a great lieutenant governor.

Just last week, we released our first television ad of the campaign – which focuses on our Parental Bill of Rights.

As governor, I strongly believe that every single child deserves a world-class education, regardless of their zip code or what neighborhood they happen to grow up in. 

Our Parental Bill of Rights lays out exactly where I stand on one of the most important issues facing our state, and is a blueprint to ensuring that every single child is given the best chance to succeed. 
It’s my promise and commitment to both parents and students, and means empowering them with more school choice options, ensuring educational transparency, and making sure that schools stay open and masks aren’t mandated.

In addition to our new TV ad, we also released digital ads in February focused on my support for law enforcement and the crippling toll that inflation is having on hardworking Marylanders.
And, we spent a bunch of time out and about all across the state talking with Marylanders about our vision.

This month we had the chance to meet with a host of Republican clubs across the state. It was great to kick off the month with the Northeast Republican Club of Baltimore County and also spend time talking with the Dorchester County Republican Central Committee and the Republican Women’s Federal Forum.
We also were fortunate to meet with business owners and veterans in Baltimore, Howard, and Frederick Counties. I was happy to talk to these individuals about our plans to make Maryland more prosperous, and an even better place to start a business, raise a family and retire. 

To end the month, our campaign spent a day thanking our county captains and some of our most dedicated volunteers for their hard work. We have a great team behind our campaign, and together, I am certain that we will be successful in November!

All across Maryland, the enthusiasm is building behind our campaign. I am truly humbled to have the support of thousands of grassroots activists and elected officials from every corner of the state.
I hope that you will share this message with your friends and family and have them join our movement!
