Still waiting


For the second time in a week, state Sen. Gwendolyn Britt (D-Prince George's) joined Montgomery County Executive Douglas M. Duncan (D) at a campaign event. Britt has been frequently mentioned as a possible running mate for Duncan, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for governor.

At Duncan's event in Takoma Park to outline his strategy for fighting crime, Britt praised Duncan's leadership. "I know Doug's plan for a safe Maryland will be one that will definitely bring us to where we need to be," Britt said.

In an interview later, Britt said she has had "discussions" with Duncan's "campaign" over joining the ticket as candidate for lieutenant governor. But Britt, like the rest of the political chattering class, is still waiting for Duncan to make up his mind.

"Until and unless things move, there is no news," Britt said.

Obligatory on-topic comment: You are missing the word "mate" as in "running mate" in your first paragraph. Also, the subject of crime seems to be a core political issue in Maryland, but, it's morre a local issue to deal with so I don't get why evedryone wants to make it the central theme to their run for governor.

Obligatory pointing out that Jim Brady is a liar: Jim Brady is a liar. I don't know him; I don't want to know him. I know what he writes and he writes lies. For people who value integrity, it must be unpleasant to work for such a man. Perhaps, if you know him, other personal qualities compensate for his lack of integrity.
