Yesterday we learned that Beretta is moving its manufacturing facilities out of Maryland. This is a direct result of the harsh gun laws enacted by the Legislature and exacerbated by Maryland’s unfriendly attitude toward business in general. Further proof of why we need to CHANGE MARYLAND – a new GOVERNOR, a new ATTORNEY GENERAL, a new COMPTROLLER, new LEGISLATORS, and more!!!!
The election is a little over 100 days away. (Sunday marks the beginning of the 100 day countdown!) There is not a minute to waste. Talk to your friends and co-workers. Register new voters (check out the BRAND NEW REPUBLICAN REGISTRATION TOOL, www.register.gop). And help us get voters to the polls in November!!!
Support your candidates whenever you can and in anyway you can. Attend events, volunteer, put up a yard sign, or work the polls in November! Please check our calendar (www.mdgop.org/calendar) for information about upcoming events. (and candidates please send your events to email@example.com to be included)

This is our year to elect more Republicans than ever. Be a part of it. And do not forget: Not voting for the Republican in the General is the same as casting a vote for their Democrat opponent. UNITED WE WIN!!
