📷 "House Minority Leader Nicholaus R. Kipke (R-Anne Arundel) said his caucus isn’t just on board with the legislation – 34 House Republicans have co-sponsored the bill, along with 14 Senate Republicans; Kipke said the Maryland GOP is also thinking about challenging the multi-member districts in court. “We believe strongly that it violates federal law,” he said."
📷 "“There’s a more progressive legislature, no doubt,” said Senate Minority Leader J.B. Jennings, Baltimore County Republican. “It’s going to be a little more partisan than it has been in years prior.” He acknowledged that members will need to be “more on our game” and “more focused” on local issues and constituent concerns, but said the GOP is going to try to pick its spots when it can, like on redistricting and Second Amendment issues. “We aren’t going to sit here and play defense every day,” Mr. Jennings said."
📷 Congratulations to Delegate Matt Morgan who has been appointed Deputy Minority Leader by House Republican leadership! Delegate Morgan is also the new Chairman of the St. Mary's County Delegation.
