Today on Midday, we continue our series of Conversations with the Candidates.
Tom's guest for the hour is Tony Campbell, the Republican candidate for the United States Senate. He is an adjunct professor of political science at Towson University and is one of four candidates running for the seat currently held by Democrat Ben Cardin.
Dr. Campbell won a crowded primary that included 11 candidates. Long involved with Republican politics, he served on the Executive Committee of the MD Republican Party and on the Charter Review Commission of Baltimore County. He ran in the Republican Primary for Baltimore County Executive in 2014, losing to the eventual nominee, George Harmon, by only 20 votes.
An African-American, Dr. Campbell supports President Donald Trump, citing in particular the tax cuts enacted last year and President Trump’s handling of foreign policy, in particular his dealings with North Korea and China.
Dr. Campbell served in the United States Army as a Chaplain and he received his doctorate from Liberty University Seminary. He is the author of two books, America Today and A More Perfect Union. Dr. Campbell is the father of two children and lives in Baltimore.
