What the Hell has been going on lately as concerns Maryland Primary Campaigns and the NRA?
To begin with, there’s the whole saga concerning 30th District MDGOP State Senate Candidates, Eric Knowles and Don Quinn, regarding an NRA Rating. See Here:
Blame THAT ONE on the NRA…but in the case of this posting, it looks like you’ll have to blame one of the candidates.
36th District GOP Senator Steve Hershey has, by all accounts, gotten the NRA’s endorsement in his primary challenge from former GOP 36th District Delegate (whom Hershey defeated in 2010), the aptly named Richard “Dick” Sossi:
(Looks like an endorsement to me. I mean, it’s “green” and all and an “A” Rating Beats an “A-” every time…)
A State Senator since 2013, Hershey represents Caroline, Cecil, Kent and Queen Anne’s Counties – a gig that Sossi wants to relieve him of by kicking his ass in tomorrow’s Primary.
Sossi wants to take Hershey’s Senate Seat so badly, to relieve him of his Senatorial splendor so much, as a matter of fact, that he apparently is lying now about who’s received the NRA endorsement in the race. From a recent mailer of his that was forwarded to me yesterday…
(What a Dick!)
By claiming that he, Sossi, has gotten the NRA endorsement over him, Hershey – when it is the exact opposite of what has happened – Dick Sossi has done a great disservice to not only Senator Hershey, but to everyone who received his mailer – and to all people who are hoping for unity after tomorrow amongst the MDGOP. It’s somewhat hard to unify with known cheaters and liars, after all. And, who could blame Senator Hershey were he to tell the obviously-very-bitter-at-having-been-beaten-by-him Dick Sossi he could shove it if/when/after he kicks his ass at the ballot box tomorrow?
As stated, Sossi is a former District 36 Delegate. He is also a former Queen Anne’s County Republican Central Committee chairman.
But, apparently, he is still a Dick.
