    But Carroll County is one of the few GOP strongholds here in MD.

    It went Romney 65-32, when MD as a whole went 62-36 Obama.

    And yes, the state leg used the sheer weight of Van Hollen's Montgomery part to totally dilute Carroll's GOP slant

      or does he ignore it?

        So he can ignore Carroll safely, but in 2012 he did some campaigning up there

          We did when I worked with O'Malley in 2010
          (Lost it 71-26)

          And only light activity with OFA in 2012.

          We put more effort into the Eastern Shore and Frederick than we did all of Carroll County. Untouchable GOP fortress...for now
