Donald Trump's swipe at Ben Jealous hands Democrat a chance to link Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan to pre

Baltimore Sun

“In Maryland, the Democrat candidate for governor wants to give illegal aliens free college tuition courtesy of the American taxpayer,” Trump said. “Come on in, free college.”

The crowd booed. But the Jealous campaign on Friday cheered, seizing on the spotlight by issuing a statement and holding a conference call with fellow Democrats to try to tie Republican Gov. Larry Hogan to Trump.

Trump’s words were an apparent swipe at Jealous' proposal to offer free tuition to community college students, without excluding Maryland residents who were brought to the United States without authorization to stay as young children — a group known as Dreamers. Jealous is not proposing free tuition for more recent arrivals.

For Jealous, whose weak fundraising has stymied his ability to counter a barrage of ads from Hogan and the Republican Governors Association, Trump’s attack came as free advertising. While Trump’s line went over with the crowd in red Montana, polls show the Republican president is deeply unpopular in Maryland.


My opinion: The party establishment in Maryland has offered a shameful lack of support to Ben Jealous.

1. Any Democrat foolish enough to vote for a Republican deserves whatever they get.

2. The Party in Maryland wanted Rushern Baker

After Baker lost, it seems many local elected officials have been lukewarm in their support of Ben Jealous
