From the Horse’s Mouth
To the press, Delegate Liz Bobo has acknowledged the challenge from local teacher John Bailey, saying that she hasn’t campaigned this hard in years and isn’t taking anything for granted.
But in an e-mail sent Friday to an apparently bipartisan list (without an authority line, of course), she sounded more like the Liz we know:
As you are most likely aware, I have a challenger in this election. John Bailey, who works in Montgomery County, switched from the Republican Party, for whom he served as Vice Chair in Howard County, and has filed against me in the Democratic primary.
It is very important that I take this challenge seriously, despite many saying that I couldn’t possibly lose. No election can be taken for granted, particularly in this tumultuous climate.
We aren’t saying she’s wrong or right. We’re just saying the arrogance is stunning.
But, hey, she probably said the same thing back in 1990.
