  1. William H. Campbell

    Mr. Sobhani appears to be confused over the proper role of a member of the U.S. Congress is, vice the role of a member of the Maryland General Assembly. As a U.S. Senator he should be fixing our national government’s ills, not fixing the State economy. While it may sound appealing to have large investments in Maryland it isn’t a Senator’s function. Money alone will not decide this election. There isn’t enough time for me to decide if he can earn my vote. Therefore, Dan Bongino will be getting my unconditional support.

    I don’t trust any candidate whose entire campaign is based on public-private partnerships with FOREIGN entities !! Maryland is a STATE, not a COUNTRY. Sobhani’s grand plans are a wolf in sheep’s clothing designed to improve our local, state economic status at the cost of sacrificing our future state sovereignty. Sorry, but public-private partnerships is a cop-out for sub-par financial skills and ingenuity from both the public and the private side of the coin. There’s a reason our founding fathers set up the concept of federalism, and it wasn’t simply for governmental structure. Moreover, the next thing you know, the inherent business ties Sobhani would set up, would then our state of Maryland in a vulnerable position to be subjected to all kinds of international law. HOW DO YOU SPELL SHARIA ? No thanks Mr. Sobhani. I’ll be voting for Bongino, precisely because he is NOT trying to morph our state into a COUNTRY – and – because his conservative views are the correct solution to help get Maryland out of the hell hole O’Malley has put us in. As to Cardin, he should be APOLOGIZING to Maryland for staying in office far too long.
