Ever wonder how come the Republicans in the House of Delegates picked up seats in to 2010, while the Republicans in the Senate lost seats?  The websites of the two caucuses  provides a good clue.

Consider this, despite the huge new tax increases passed during the special session, the Maryland Republican Slate Committee has yet to update its website in over a month.  http://www.mdsenategop.com/

Contrast that with the Republicans in the House of Delegates – http://marylandhousegop.wordpress.com/

It is time that Republican Leader Sen. E. J. Pipkin and the rest of the colleagues be more aggressive in getting the conservative message out.  Too often the Senate Republicans have been too willing to “go along, to get along” with Mike Miller.

There is a reason Chis Shank won a primary against Don Munson in 2010.  Rank and file Republicans were tired of Senate  Republican complacency.

If Senate Republicans do not step up their game, there will many more primaries in 2014.

For starters, Senate Republicans need to be clear – there will not be a single vote from any of them in a special session from them on expanded gambling.  It is time for them to stand up to Mike Miller on his only priority.

This is all on top of a poorly coded website which leaks out for all to codding errors.  Someone should hire a real web developer at the Maryland Republican Slate Committee.

    Dont you dare attach EJ Pipkin for the website. According to that websites contacts page Nancy Jacobs is the minority leader.

    How is being anti-gambling a Republican value? Doesnt it fall into the anti-nanny state, personal responsibility, individual liberty category?

    Complacency is exactly why Mooney was fired by his constituents. He was more focused on his personal profiteering from his position (YAF, NJC, etc) rather than helping his district.
