The upheaval in today's Republican Party started after the Civil Rights Act of 1964 but didn't come to the fore until Newt Gingrich's takeover of the House in 1995. Now it has become a real threat to the nation.
GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney released 37 new Maryland endorsements on Tuesday, including Anne Arundel County state Sen. Bryan W. Simonaire and Baltimore County Del. William J. Frank. Recent polls show Romney running even or slightly behind former House Speaker Newt Gingrich among likely Republican voters nationally.
