Kittleman Considers Run for County Executive
The Republican State Senator announces his intentions at a breakfast fundraiser in Ellicott City.
Republican State Sen. Allan Kittleman, of West Friendship, told supporters at a breakfast fundraiser on Wednesday morning that if he gets the funds and support, he plans on running for county executive in 2014, according to an article on Explore Howard.
In the article, Kittleman said he commissioned a poll this spring that surveyed 450 county voters. That poll, administered by a Republican political research firm, showed Kittleman 20 points ahead of likely Democratic candidates Del. Guy Guzzone and County Council member Courtney Watson, according to the article.
In February 2011, Kittleman made headlines when he stepped down as GOP leader after a failed attempt to pass a bill supporting civil unions. He then announced he would support same sex marriage in Maryland.
Current County Executive Ken Ulman is term-limited and will be forced to step down from his position in 2014. On Thursday, Ulman is holding a breakfast fundraiser that costs $1,000 or $4,000 per plate to attend.
