Update, 7/9/11: Click for Maryland’s requirements for filing to be a candidate for U.S. Senate. The deadlines haven’t been updated yet for the 2012 election, so I assume the final deadline for filing is early July 2012. So I am going to let my readers decide: if I can raise at least $2,000 in donations to me personally — since I don’t have a campaign committee — by August 9, 2011, then I will begin my campaign with a master mind group webinar every two weeks dedicated to creating a platform of what a Republican fiscal conservative senator can do to restore prosperity to the United States and to Maryland. There’s no campaign finance committee, so that’s why the donations have to be to me personally.
With at least $2,000, I can buy the software and some gizmos, such as a video camera, that will help me get rolling. I’ll use the video camera to make weekly videos for YouTube. I also would get some photographs made and have to buy some new clothes for the photographs and videos. I’ve lost over 50 pounds since last June and nothing I have now fits. By December, we’ll know if there’s enough buzz, money and volunteers for me to file. Remember, the first hurdle is to win the nomination. Dear gentle readers, what do you say?
