Al Redmer, Jr., Calls on Opponent to Finally Clarify Support for Ben Jealous
Towson, MD - Al Redmer, Jr., Republican nominee for Baltimore County Executive, today called on his Democratic opponent, Johnny Olszewski, Jr., to clarify his support for his party's nominee for governor, Ben Jealous. This week, reports surfaced showing that the official Twitter account for the Jealous campaign liked an offensive and hateful tweet about law enforcement officers.
"I am shocked and dismayed that the Ben Jealous campaign would like such an egregious comment about police officers. Our brave men and women in law enforcement put their lives on the line every single day to keep our residents and communities safe," Redmer said. "They deserve nothing less than our utmost respect and support. I am calling on my opponent to finally clarify once and for all whether he supports his party's candidate for governor."
Despite appearing at an event with Jealous this past weekend, Olszewski has not stated publicly whether he endorses the Democratic gubernatorial candidate. The Redmer campaign has previously called on Olszewski to clarify his support for Jealous, but the Olszewski camp refused to state definitively whether or not he is endorsing Jealous.
