Candidate Profile |
Tony O'Donnell, who has been minority leader in the Maryland House of Delegates since 1997, has been a regular critic of the spending policies of the House's Democrat-controlled chamber.
When O'Donnell announced his U.S. House bid in December of 2011, he said politicians in Washington have lost touch by spending too much money without thinking of the consequences to citizens. He says it's time for the government to make sacrifices and reduce spending.
In March of 2012, he criticized a proposed state revenue package that included an income tax hike on people who make more than $100,000, saying it would hurt people who are still trying to bounce back from the recession.
