Opinion: Maryland giving birth to a new political center

August 1, 2022

Maryland should be moving toward a New Center.

With 43% of the country identifying as independents according to a recent Gallup poll, the national dialogue about our red-coat/blue-coat war remains a serious distortion. Maryland in recent years has been a laboratory of change, deliberately or unintentionally, on the part of the voters and the politicians.
