Ex-Secret Service Agent To Run For Senate

BALTIMORE (AP) — A former Secret Service agent says he is running for U.S. Senate from Maryland.

Daniel Bongino, a Severna Park resident who also worked for the New York City police department, announced Tuesday that he would seek the seat held by Ben Cardin, who was elected to the Senate in 2006.

Bongino, 36 and a Republican, says he is entering the 2012 race because political leaders are making America a follower rather than a leader in the global economy.

Brian Murphy will be Bongino’s campaign chairman. Murphy is a former Republican candidate for governor.

    AMERICA WILL BE A FOLLOWER IN THE GLOBAL ECONOMY FROM NOW ON……………THE ONLY WAY WE CAN BE A LEADER AGAIN IS TO START UP THE FACTORIES, START MINING THE IRON ORE AND COAL, DRILL FOR OIL, ETC., ETC……………AND THAT WON’T HAPPEN IF WE’RE TRYING TO BE GREEN AND YOU CAN’T BE GREEN AND FIX OUR ECONOMY AT THE SAME TIME.

    CHINA ISN’T WORRIED ABOUT BEING GREEN AND SOON WE WILL BE COMPLETELY OWNED BY CHINA.

    YOU HAVE TO MAKE A CHOICE………ONE OR THE OTHER!!!!!

    Well Daniel, as long as you’re corrupt at heart,
    greedy by nature,
    can talk out of both sides of your mouth,
    and are willing to take money from big business,
    then answer to them,first and foremost,
    then my friend, you may indeed qualify.

    Doug is making a very un-PC remark about Mr. Bongino because he is apparently an Italian-American, and as we all know Italians are corrupt at heart and greedy by nature!!!!

    Just like the Lybian conflict, Obama would not take the lead. We go in number one or we should not go! I am sick at my stomach the way this country is being run. Good luck Mr Bongino, you have 5 votes in Grasonville,MD

  5. Charles says:

    Mr. Bongino you have my vote. Cardin, Hoyer, Van Hollen and Babs all are cheerleaders for Obama. This once great country is now in decline.

    It’s a shame because any other state, this guy might have a chance. However, here where you have angry limo liberals in Howard and Montgomery counties voting DEMO. Then you also then have the massive voter fraud. After all, Baltimore city is where every 4 in 2 dead people “vote” DEMO. To top that off, you then have an entire generation of people that feel they are entitled and should be taken care of. Therefore, this guy has about as much of a chance as someone who would challenge Kim Jong in North Korea.
