The Maryland Democratic Party is criticizing Baltimore County executive candidate Al Redmer Jr., claiming he has accepted insurance-related campaign contributions after pledging not to do so.
But Redmer campaign spokeswoman Hannah Marr dismissed the claim as “ridiculous.”
Redmer, who is the Maryland insurance commissioner, has said he wouldn’t accept donations from the industry that he regulates. His website warns potential donors: “We shall not accept contributions from individuals or businesses regulated by the Maryland Insurance Administration.”
Redmer is facing Democrat Johnny Olszewski Jr. in the election.
