ROSEDALE, Md. (AP) — Harford County Executive David Craig has long experience in local government, plus one term in each chamber of the Maryland General Assembly.
He has a long resume in government and education, experience he believes is needed in Maryland's next governor.
Despite the uphill climb Maryland Republicans face in statewide races, Craig says the time is ripe for a GOP victory after nearly eight years of tax increases and frustrating fund transfers that have impacted transportation funding to balance the state's books during the recession.
A top goal of a Craig administration would be to phase out the state's income tax beginning in 2016.
Craig is running against Del. Ron George, real estate broker Larry Hogan and Charles County businessman Charles Lollar in the GOP primary for governor.
