George claims 'both' Republicans in Prince George's

With the General Assembly's 2014 session just two days young, Maryland's delegates and senators still have catching up to do.

At the House Ways and Means committee's organizational meeting Thursday, delegates updated each other on what happened in their lives over the interim.

Del. Ron George, R-Arnold told his fellow members about his run for the Republican nomination for governor in 2014.

George said the campaign has been "exhausting." He said he's been racing to and from events, last night attending a chamber meeting in northern Anne Arundel County.

Del. Jay Walker, D-Prince George's, wasn't buying George's hustle.

"How come we don't see you in Prince George's County campaigning?" Walker asked. "We've got a couple of Republicans, you can get a couple of votes."

George assured him he's been there too.

"I've spoken to both of them," George joked.

In Prince George's County, Democrats outnumber Republicans 445,175 to 44,642, according to voter data from December 2013.

George announced his run for governor in June last year. But according to the State Board of Elections, he still has not filed as a candidate.

The filing deadline is Feb. 25, while the primary election is June 24.
