Far from being a stalwart advocate for Maryland's most vulnerable, she opposed important legislation that would help marginalized neighborhoods in Baltimore. Unlike Gov. Larry Hogan, she fought against legislation that would make college more affordable for Marylanders. Her support for Donald Trump, who continually degrades and insults women and minorities, has, in her words, "never wavered," and she's voted against marriage equality and against paid sick leave. She could not be further away from the ideals of Sen. Barbara Mikulski, who embodies Maryland values.
