House Speaker Michael E. Busch
The environment was a clear winner this election cycle.
Nearly 90% of our 112 endorsed #MDVotesGreen2014 candidates have been elected in their primary election and they are one step closer to representing us in the Maryland General Assembly.
We set out to elect a pro-conservation Administration and Attorney General, build a pro-conservation majority in the Senate, and maintain a pro-conservation majority in the House of Delegates . With a large number of open seats and contested races, we made unprecedented investments in coordinated and independent campaigns this primary season to move voters to Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, Ken Ulman, Brian Frosh, Jim Brochin and Brooke Lierman, among others.
Thank you for your support and now onto the General Election in November!
Today we also announced our final round of endorsed candidates for the House of Delegates in the 2014 state primary elections- which includes 11 House of Delegates candidates who are well-versed in environmental issues and ready to lead Maryland into the future by making the environment a priority.

Our interactive online map with printable ballots will make it even easier for voters to remember our Environmental candidates and educate them about all their options to represent them in the General Assembly!
"Our goal is to educate voters about the best environmental candidates. This is even more important in open seats where candidates may not have established records," said Chuck Porcari, our Political Committee Chair of Maryland LCV's Board. "Voters don't have the time to interview and review each candidate's platform, but they can rely upon Maryland LCV to do their homework and let voters know the best choice."
More endorsements will be released in the coming weeks and months, with one more round before the June 24th Primary election. Please follow us on twitter @MDLCV and use the hashtag #MDVotesGreen2014 for more up to date environmental endorsements.
