Ed Tinus

(July 13, 2018) Ed Tinus, who just this year filed to run for State Senate in District 38, dropped out of that race and then launched a successful campaign for Worcester County Republican Central Committee and an unsuccessful one for District 38C Delegate has filed, once again, to run as a Republican write-in candidate for House of Delegates for District 38C.

Tinus will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot alongside Wayne Hartman, who won the primary. The deadline to file as a write-in candidate is Aug. 6.

Ebony Parran, candidate campaign finance staff member at the Maryland Board of Elections, confirmed the law allows an unsuccessful candidate to mount write-in campaigns during the same election cycle.

The Worcester County Board of Elections was not aware of the filing, but since it’s a state office, the candidate filed in Annapolis, Maryland.

During the primary, Tinus won 283, or 8.4 percent of votes for the office, coming in third of four candidates. However, the fourth name on the list, Jim Shaffer, withdrew his candidacy weeks before the election. Shaffer still got 109, or 3.1 percent of the vote.

Tinus fared better in the Republican Central Committee race, winning a seat along with eight others and garnering 8.6 percent of the vote in a field of 12.
