Maryland state Sen. David R. Brinkley probably won't topple incumbent Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett in Tuesday's Republican congressional primary, but his campaign sure is going down swinging.
Maryland state Sen. David R. Brinkley threw down the gauntlet Wednesday, announcing his campaign for Congress and calling on expected Republican primary opponent Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett to "pass the baton."
ANNAPOLIS (AP) — Saying Maryland can't wait to try to address global warming, state lawmakers predict that a menu of environmental proposals could dominate this year's session.
But Sen. David R. Brinkley, Frederick Republican, said he doesn't think there is much the state can do.
"I don't think they can put the genie back in the bottle, number one," Mr. Brinkley said. "And number two, as long as Maryland adheres to its very strict standards — which do not allow new generating stations — there are only two things that can happen: one is the prices will go up or there will be power brownouts or blackouts."
