Former Marine Charles Lollar to run against Steny Hoyer
Maryland Community Newspapers Online ^ | Oct. 9, 2009 | Daniel Valentine

Excerpt:
Charles Lollar, a conservative Republican from Charles County, announced this week his candidacy for the District 5 congressional seat held by House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D).

“We’re going to speak the truth. We’re going to speak about what matters. There are people hurting out there,” Lollar told about 80 supporters gathered Wednesday at the American Legion banquet hall in Greenbelt, where he announced his run that was expected after he set up an exploratory committee several months ago.

Lollar, 38, a Newburg resident and regional general manager for Cintas uniform company, is the first official challenger to announce a run against Hoyer in the 2010 congressional race.

Lollar previously served in the Marines and currently is chairman of the Charles County Republican Central Committee.

Lollar said he is running on a pledge to reduce taxes, limit government spending and “give Congress back to the people.” He also opposes the public option in health care reform and government spending on bank bailouts.

I'm sure there are lots of FReepers who will jump in at this point
and describe this candidate's faults in order to illustrate
how Charles Lollar is not perfect in their eyes;
and they will vote for a third party 'pure' conservative;
or they will just stay home and not vote;
because they might just as well keep Steny Hoyer
as have an imperfect representative.

I attended the campaign launch in Greebelt. Lollar is very impressive.

I am so with you on your opinion!

Lets just all shoot ourselves in the foot...or do the ‘insane” thing: Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results!

Neal Boortz did a terrific rant on this very topic today.

I would crawl across a parking lot full of broken glass to vote against Hoyer. No matter who runs against him. He is a Socialist pos and is out to destroy America, along with the other traitors in DC! Boot all incumbents!

I just watched the 5 minute video at the link I posted above. What a great candidate! And you can tell a lot about a person by the groups he’s a member of on Facebook. Lots of good stuff there by my standards.

Darn, I'll happily have to rework my graphic. Maybe Pelosi and Ram and that other idiot will go away as well and I can retire it.

Steny Hoyer can be seen employing a new technique he learned from speech coach Barney Fwank.

We might see another environment such as displaced Speaker Foley in 1994. Does Lollar have that magic? Is the environment sufficiently polluted by bad politics? Don’t know, but betting on it.

he'll never win.... remember, whoever COUNTS the votes wins. There is so much fraud that it's laughable that any conservative will ever win unless "allowed" to win.

B1-Bob Dornan's seat was essentially stolen by illegals voting and NOTHING ever came of it. ACORN got Minnesota's senate race flipped to the democrat party... and not one thing happened.

Boxes of fake votes and a voting machine found in a democrat precinct workers trunk in Florida... NOTHING.

So unless we're willing to actually throw down legally or adopt the tactics of our enemies, it's all for nothing. We'll NEVER win at the ballot box, the judiciary is already against us and "sets policy" as the wise Latina stated with her smirking little ferret face.

That goes on only as long as We the People let it....

Supporting Lollar sounds like a good idea to me. When it comes to Diddly Dee Scozza Fava Beans, on the other hand...

Maryland “Freak State” PING!
