CRISFIELD, Md. - The Tawes Crab and Clam Bake is not just about the delicious food, it's also considered one of Maryland's biggest political meet-ups of the year.
Dozens of elected officials took to Somers Cove Marina in Crisfield to talk upcoming policies and campaigns, including Maryland gubernatorial candidate Ron George. His opponent, David Craig, recently named Del. Jeannie Haddaway as his selection for lieutenant governor. WMDT asked George if he would soon name his second-in-command.
"The running mate process is a long process and I'm not going to rush it," said George. "My compliments to the other guys. They try to pick someone that is good who can help their campaign and a need to fill a little business niche."
George is running on a "10-point promise," a campaign plan, which includes economic growth and development, reducing taxes and increasing safety. George says he will choose a running mate with the same core values and already has narrowed down his choices between five to seven candidates.
