The Scorecard: (Click the “Yes” or follower numbers below to view the social media page)







866 (+49)

43 (+2)

498 (+0)

789 (+19)


1206 (+37)

8 (-1)

186 (+13)

289 (+9)


14 (+3)

40 (+6)





Here are my takeaways from the scorecard above:

Tom Coale has added the most new followers on Facebook and Twitter (by a wide margin) over the other candidates since the last evaluation. He also has a very nice following on Instagram and has been quite active on that platform. Just to continue to pile on the complements, his campaign Facebook page had the most engagement over the past week (see photo).

Facebook Activity for 9B

Carol Loveless continues to lead on the Republican side of this race. She had a decent showing in adding new Facebook followers since the past evaluation.

Bob Flanagan had a positive sign in new Twitter adds but more tweets for those new (and old) followers would probably be a good idea going forward.

Not much to say about Rich Corkran. Very little use of technology continues for this team. It remains a big miss in my opinion.

Obviously Tom Coale remains my overall technology outreach leader in this race. Carol Loveless remains the top Republican candidate in this race for technology outreach.

Of course the reality of followers, likes, and subscribers does not mean a lot when it comes down to voting in the end, but it is a fun exercise to do and makes a great resource for following all of these candidates.

  1. […] will surely be a strongly contested general.  Based on our ability to fundraise, canvass, and leverage the campaign tools of the 21st Century, I have every conviction that we can win and give Ellicott City the representation it deserves in […]

  2. My opinion on Bob Flanagan is if his delegate role is any comparison to his family law practice he will be a great disappointment. I hired him as an attorney to defend me in a custody case against a kidnapping mother. He not only did nothing to defend me and leaving me at the mercy of a abusive women and a victim of violation to all my constitutional rights. He charged me close $30,000 for it. Whats MORE is he put another attorney even though we had a verbal agreement that HE would handle the case. THAT attorney he put on my case Shanon Knox had NEVER handled a custody case EVER. It is clearly flat out misrepresentation to put a rookie attorney who had never handled a custody case on a case as severe as kidnapping, almost a year of time stolen from me. All he cares about is money and would not admit to his error or fix this. That to me is not the action of an honest person who claims to represent the people.
