Lollar definitely eyeing Hoyer's congressional seat
We reported on this blog that Charles Lollar, a Republican viewed as a credible political hopeful, might have his sights set on Washington. It turns out that he does. This ran in The Sun this morning:
Charles Lollar has told supporters he plans to form an exploratory committee for a campaign against Rep. Steny H. Hoyer, a longtime Southern Maryland Democrat and House majority leader. In an e-mailed letter sent Wednesday, Lollar said he made the decision after meeting with voters who are concerned about "reckless actions" taken by Congress.
Lollar, chairman of the Republican Central Committee in Charles County, had been considering a gubernatorial run but reportedly might not meet the constitutional standard that candidates must have been registered voters in the state for five years before the general election.
He is seeking donations to raise more than $50,000 to open a headquarters, conduct a poll and build a grass-roots organization. He would face a well-financed Hoyer, who is now serving his 15th term in Congress.
