Pelura Seeks 'Massive Gains' in Legislature
Say what you will about embattled Maryland Republican Party Chairman James Pelura, but he certainly seems to be trying to raise money.
A week ago, Pelura acknowledged in a fundraising solicitation that the party is "broke."
In another letter that has come our way, Pelura asks for money to support Republican candidates for the General Assembly next year, saying help is needed to stem "the disastrous socialism of the Maryland Democrats."
Pelura acknowledges the possibility that the state's Democratic governor could be re-elected, writing: "If Martin O'Malley wins a second term with support from large liberal majorities in the State Capitol, it will only get worse -- more taxes, more spending, more government control. These people simply cannot be trusted with so much power."
Republicans currently hold 14 of 47 Senate seats and 36 of 141 House seats. Pelura says he is seeking "massive gains."
