Maryland GOP Embraces Walker's Toxic Politics
Annapolis, Md. — Maryland Democratic Party executive director Chuck Conner today released the following statement in response to Governor Scott Walker being named headlining speaker for the Maryland Republican Party's annual fundraiser:
“Governor Scott Walker has spent his time in office attacking unions, women’s rights and legal protections for LGBTQ residents in his state. He slashed funding for public education and embraced an anti-environmental platform as a key part of his presidential campaign. By inviting Governor Walker to headline its annual fundraiser, the Maryland Republican Party is embracing the sort of toxic politics that have no place in our state."
