Liberals on the East Coast got some very bad news last week.

Early Thursday morning, the leading Democrat candidate for Governor of Maryland, Kevin Kamenetz, passed away.

Major Blow to Democrat Party

At 60-years-old, Kamenetz still had a significant career ahead of him.

The baton was expected to be handed over to him in the upcoming gubernatorial race for Maryland.

From there, he was being tagged as one of the future leaders of the party.

That all changed early Thursday morning.

Reports stated Kamenetz woke around 2am and did not feel well.

He was rushed to the hospital and died soon afterwards.

Distinguished Career

Kamenetz’s career started in the courtroom as a prosecutor in 1994.

He has a very successful career, serving a total of four terms.

In addition to his prosecutorial duties, he had served as the president of the Maryland Association of Counties as well as the Baltimore Metropolitan Council.

One of his greatest strengths was his fiscal accountability to the citizens of the state.

Kamenetz was using the Trump presidency to strengthen his base during his run to the governor’s mansion.

He, like most liberals these days, had taken on the cause of the undocumented immigrant.

His death will surely shake up the race, leaving Democrats scrambling to find a suitable replacement.
