Maryland Republican candidates: The Baltimore Orioles of politics?

Some Maryland Republicans, on the heels of devastating political losses statewide, say GOP prognostications — even from party leaders — are far too gloomy. For example, Maryland lieutenant governor candidate Mary Kane doubted whether the state would see another Republican governor before 2050, according to The Baltimore Sun. That statement isn’t going over well with some party activists.

“Even when the Baltimore Orioles finished dead last in 2009, the franchise didn’t write off future victories,” said Daniel Vovak, an at-large member of the Montgomery County Republican Party. “Therefore, I ask that Mary Kane retracts her quote and apologizes before Doug Gansler thanks her by sending a bouquet of roses.”

But the O’s didn’t exactly turn it around this year, as they accrued the second-worst record in the American League. SOURCE: Washington Examiner
