Coverage by notes,

Newburg businessman and former gubernatorial candidate Charles Lollar has re-entered the 2014 election scene following his nomination Monday by the Charles County Republican Central Committee as the party’s candidate in the District 1 race for county commissioner.

…Lollar made a name for himself in state Republican circles as a charismatic conservative after running a spirited but unsuccessful campaign against U.S. Rep. Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md., 5th) in 2010. He ran for governor this year but finished a distant third in the GOP primary behind nominee Larry Hogan and Harford County Executive David Craig.

Lollar could not be reached for comment, but his campaign manager, La Plata resident Chris Cherest, said the notion of Lollar entering the District 1 race arose in the moments after it became clear Lollar had lost his gubernatorial primary.
