Sen. Jamie Raskin (D-20) is fighting back against the misuse of quotations from him that give the sense that he has endorsed opponents of AG Candidate Brian Frosh and Sen. Rich Madaleno (D-18):
Politics can be a tough business because anybody can say anything, and before it’s all over, they probably will. But the truth is important, and I want to be clear about something to any of my friends out there. When all the dust settles on Tuesday, Brian Frosh better be the Democratic nominee for Attorney General and Rich Madaleno better be coming back as the Senator from District 18. These two public servants—I do not use the term lightly–are indispensable to the people of Montgomery County and Maryland. Indispensable. We would not have the toughest gun safety law in America without Brian Frosh, and we would not have marriage equality without Rich Madaleno. Go out and vote for them with pride in everything they have accomplished and confidence in both their public honor and their passionate commitment to our community.
The boldface is mine.
