ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I know it is still early, but so far only Maryland Democratic representatives Chris Van Hollen, District 8, and Donna Edwards, District 4, have announced plans to run for retiring Sen. Barbara Mikulski’s open Senate seat. This does not give Maryland voters any good choices or hope for making things better in Maryland.

Maryland residents made the correct choice last November and elected the right governor, Larry Hogan, for our state. So now let us look forward and hope they also make the right choice for representation in the Senate.

What we need here is a couple of conservative GOP candidates to toss their hats into the ring. For Maryland I would like to see 2014 congressional nominee Daniel Bongino, a former Secret Service agent for more than 12 years at the White House, announce his run for Ms. Mikluski’s seat.

Mr. Bongino would not only provide real, trusted leadership, he would also provide Congress with real solutions. These are things that are sadly lacking in Maryland these days.
