The Maryland Republicans may be in search of an office and (potentially) a chairman, but, they have found a permanent executive director.

Twenty-six year old David Ferguson, a GOP campaign consultant a with Virgina-based firm, will take over the position that's been held for the past six months on an interim basis by Del. Justin Ready.

In a brief interview, Ferguson said he's hoping to bring some "significant changes" to the Maryland GOP. "You have to sit back and see because it will be really exciting," Ferguson said. "We'll be conservative alternate view in Annapolis."

"In the long term there's going to be a change in attitude and a change in perspective," Ferguson said. "That is what I'm excited to bring."


Ferguson was the campaign manager for Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley, helping him win the GOP nomination. He then worked on a series of targeted House and Senate races in the state.

Before getting into politics, Ferguson attracted some attention in his home state: He was recognized by Alabama Public Television as a "Young Hero" in 2003 after rescuing a man who was drowning. He's also an Eagle Scout.

It's a tumultuous time to be a GOP party official in Maryland. After digging out of debt last year, the party has again found itself confronting red ink. Plus the party will be moving their headquarters from their choice address on West Street to another, less expensive and yet-to-be named location.

And MD GOP chairman Alex X. Mooney announced yesterday that is eying a primary challenge to U.S. Rep. Roscoe Bartlett. If Mooney runs, he will have to step down.
