In line with the GOP?
Will Maryland Comptroller Peter V.R. Franchot, a Democrat, cross party lines to endorse GOP state Sen.David R. Brinkley in the 6th Congressional District race?
Brinkley campaign spokesman Don Murphy posed that question in an email Monday, referring to a Herald-Mail Campaign Notebook item from December, when Franchot was asked if he’ll endorse state Sen.Robert J. Garagiolain a Democratic primary.
Franchot was uncommitted, but said he’d back a Democrat “who’s sticking up for the little guy.” Franchot went on to criticize recent or potential increases in the sales, gas and alcohol tax, all of which Garagiola has supported.
