Greg Holmes enters Md. U.S. Senate Republican primary

Greg Holmes to run for U.S. Senate

Republican Greg Holmes is running for the U.S. Senate.

Holmes, a Maryland political unknown, will take leave from his state government job to launch a campaign. He was tapped by Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) to serve as the Maryland Transit Administration‘s director of governmental affairs.

The Prince George’s County Republican announced his Senate bid on Facebook.

“Today, I filed to run to represent the great state of Maryland in the United States Senate. Our country is at a crossroads, and it is time that new leadership steps and stands firm with the constitution,” Holmes wrote.

Holmes first announced his candidacy on Jan. 27 on A Miner Detail Podcast in an exclusive interview with A Miner Detail Podcast host Ryan Miner.

Holmes says he supports U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) in the 2016 Republican primary contest.

Other Maryland Republicans to run for the U.S. Senate seat are state Del. Kathy Szeliga (R-Baltimore), former U.S. Senate candidate Richard J. Douglas, John Graziani, Chrys Kefalas, Lynn Richardson, Anthony Seda, Richard Shawver, and Dave Wallace.

Maryland’s primary is April 26.
