MARYLAND – The Republican Primary on September 14, 2010 has produced a spirited contest for the office of U.S. Senator, facing the probable Democratic primary winner, Barbara Mikulski. According to official reports and announcements, on the Republican ballot will be seven candidates, including: Carmen Amedori, John F. Curran, John B. Kimble, Daniel W. McAndrew, Jim Rutledge, Corrogan R. Vaughn, and Eric Wargotz.
Currently, three of the seven candidates have indicated they will sign the Statement. Because Vovak has not been able to speak directly with all of them, he said he will wait until all have been given ample time to respond before releasing their names, though those candidates can speak freely at any time with their supporters and the media, should they desire to do so.
Within the Maryland Republican Party Constitution, under Article 11, Section 2, d(2), Maryland's Republican Chairman must show no "partiality or prejudice" towards any Republican candidate before a primary. Article 2, Section 2 states that the Party "works towards the election of Republican nominees."
Statement of Unity to Defeat Barbara Mikulski:
"I, ____________________________________________________, will support the winner of the Maryland Republican primary on September 14, 2010, so Maryland will have a Republican in the United States Senate. In addition, should I win the primary, I will reach out to the other Republican candidates for their support."
