Kagan to challenge Forehand for Senate seat
Former delegate says Annapolis needs ‘new leadership'Published: Wednesday, April 1, 2009 7:00 am By: C. Benjamin Ford and Douglas Tallman Source: Montgomery Gazette
Forehand has sponsored numerous bills and spends a lot of time throughout her district, Simmons said.
"I'm not sure what the justification will be for Cheryl anyway to oust a liberal Democratic woman," he said.
Simmons, who has not ruled out running for the same Senate seat, said he would wait to see how the race develops between Kagan and Forehand.
"A year from now I'm going to have to examine where my intentions are and see where the race is with Cheryl and Jennie and see whether I can make a contribution in the Senate or whether I want to remain in the House," Simmons said.
Del. Kumar Barve (D-Dist. 17) of Gaithersburg said he did not understand why Kagan would run against Forehand.
"Jennie wins easily because, No. 1, Jennie Forehand doesn't cast unpopular votes," Barve said. "She's very likable, and that means a lot in politics."
