Maryland’s new Governor has taken a forceful and courageous stand against Maryland’s Death Penalty. It is a bold and unexpected move that distinguishes him in the public mind as a conviction politician. I couldn’t be more overjoyed.
In the days of focus groups and weekly tracking polls, it is rare to see politicians taking a stands like this based on conviction. It is so rare that even a Skeptical Brotha like me had to sit up, take notice, and applaud him. He definitely is the hero of the Week.
After eight years of this, I see something else on the horizon for this conviction politician bigger and better than Annapolis. Something in Washington, D.C. perhaps?
