Dan Bongino Says Future Election Run In Maryland Possible

Play associated audio

Former Maryland Republican Senate candidate Dan Bongino is taking advantage of this year's Conservative Political Action Conference to build his fundraising network.

Bongino lost the three-way Senate race to Democrat Ben Cardin, but he hasn't stopped trying to paint Maryland red. The former Secret Service agent started a PAC called Cede No Ground for Maryland, which he says is raising money to help like-minded conservatives win in the blue state.

"To help fund other candidates' state senate seats, we need the ability to fight back in Maryland," he says. "Right now we're overwhelmed by a liberal super majority taking away your economy, your healthcare, your education, and your self protection rights. We need the ability to fight back."

As for Bongino's future, he says we may see his name on the ballot again in Maryland soon.

"We're feeling out 2014 the electoral cycle," he says. "We're looking at a few offices, some statewide, some not... we're strongly considering it."
