GOP Candidates for Md. Governor Gather for Debate in Salisbury

Posted: Updated:
SALISBURY, Md.- Maryland's Republican candidates for governor convened Saturday night for a debate at Salisbury University.

The Republican candidates are David Craig, Ron George, Larry Hogan and Charles Lollar, and all four contenders participated in the debate.

The candidates spoke about their vision for Maryland and touched on the state's economy. Also, they spoke about strategies to make Maryland's tax policies more business friendly. They addressed ways to solve issues facing business owners on Delmarva as well.  

Craig was the first candidate to address the topic on the Eastern Shore.He said his running mate, Del. Jeannie Haddaway-Riccio (R-Dist.37B) will be a voice for the Eastern Shore.

"You will be able to create history," Craig said. " She will be the first lieutenant government ever elected from the Eastern Shore."

"She understands that the Lower Shore has slight differences than the mid-shore or the upper shore," he said.

George spoke about an economic plan that will support local businesses.

"My economic plan for Maryland includes putting a large amount of local dollars into tourism for the Eastern Shore," George said.

Craig vowed to protect the interest of people on Delmarva.

"I can tell you the folks that have been forgotten, been neglected, been attacked for the next eight years will have a seat at the table with this administration," Hogan said. "We're going to do everything we can to look out for the interest."

Lollar said the interests of business owners on the Eastern Shore will be top priority.

"We have to make the Eastern Shore our priority," Lollar said. "Eastern shore citizens pay the same taxes as anyone else does across the state; one of the big differences is they don't get a good return for the taxes that they pay."

"We're going to make it a priority to leave the Eastern Shore alone and let them conduct and run their business and be successful, and then support them, he said."

The primary election is June 24, 2014 in Maryland.
