Here are my takeaways from the scorecard above:

Larry Hogan continues to add followers on Facebook at an impressive level. He is getting close to that 100,000 follower milestone. He also lead all candidates in adding new Twitter followers over the past month.

Ron George added a good number of new Facebook followers this past month. He has done a good job over the past few months in acquiring followers on Facebook and is edging ever closer to the follower numbers of Craig and Lollar.

Charles Lollar and David Craig both had some positives but I can’t say that either campaign really stood out this past month.

Without question Larry Hogan remains the clear technology outreach leader in this race. If he does win this Primary his significant Facebook following can only help him in the General Election.

Of course the reality of followers, likes, and subscribers does not mean a lot when it comes down to voting in the end, but it is a fun exercise to do and makes a great resource for following all of these candidates.

  1. Hogan started out with over 50,000 before he entered the race. When it comes to resumes, David Craig has no equal. Craig has never lost a race 11-0, Hogan has never won one. Being governor boils down to a few things: EXPERIENCE, TAX REDUCTION, PROTECTION OF CITIZENS RIGHTS INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS, The man who can accomplish these goals and manage the State is the man we need, David Craig is the only one who has a proven track record.
