I heard a couple of days ago that this might happen…and then I saw the post and ad on Facebook today. Doug Gansler has endorsed Greg Jennings for Howard County Council in District 3. Here is the text from the post:
Former Attorney General Doug Gansler endorses Greg Jennings for Howard County Council.
“I have seen Greg Jennings fight for a government that puts people first. From leading the Young Democrats of Maryland to being a legislative aide in Annapolis, he is a progressive champion. That’s why I know he will make a great representative on the Howard County Council.”
In a race for Howard County Council that has four candidates (Hadgu, Hunt, Jennings and Rigby) and super low turnout (the lowest early voting turnout of all 5 councilmanic districts) an endorsement like this could go a long way. Gansler would have been a front runner for Governor had he run this year (per a Goucher Poll back in September of 2017). It is kind of late in the game and we will know soon if it helps put Jennings over the top in this race.
I invite everyone to come out Tuesday night to watch the results come in:
