Congratulations to Senator Nancy Jacobs on her election to the position of Senate Minority Leader. We thankful that the Maryland GOP dodged the bullet and avoided what would have been the disastrous election of David Brinkley are hopeful that she will lead the GOP caucus in principled opposition to the policies of Martin O'Malley and the Maryland Democrat Party. We also hope she will lead the caucus in making hard votes and will steer away from the policy of acting as nothing more than an adjunct to the Democrat majority.
"Maryland Republicans Take Another Hard Right Turn: Maryland’s Senate Republicans today affirmed that they are out of touch and out of new ideas by choosing Nancy Jacobs to lead their dwindling State Senate caucus. ... Rather than come together to help move Maryland forward, the elections of Jacobs and E.J. Pipkin personify the Republican establishment’s unwillingness to build consensus in Annapolis. Nancy Jacobs is wedded to positions that are far-right, divisive and out of the mainstream."
