In a tweet yesterday…President Obama sent out a lot of endorsements for candidates across the country…and one candidate right here in Howard County was a recipient of an endorsement…Courtney Watson (candidate for Delegate in District 9B). Here is the tweet sent out on October 1st:
The candidates he endorsed in Maryland include: Ben Jealous (Governor), Susie Turnbull (Lt. Governor), Courtney Watson (Delegate 9B) and Mike Busch (Delegate 30A).
Courtney Watson is in an interesting race with Delegate Bob Flanagan for the Delegate District 9B seat…so every endorsement helps.
The big question is…where do Independent voters turn in this race…that will likely be the deciding factor (that and total voter turnout). Keep an eye on this race folks…I am thinking it will be a close one.
