Blaine Young intends to run for governor.
The Frederick County Commissioners president released a statement Saturday, announcing his plans to begin raising campaign funds.
The announcement comes nearly two months after Young initially said he was exploring the idea of a run for Maryland’s highest office.
“Someone has to step up to plate … someone has to have the guts to do it,” Young said Saturday in a telephone interview.
Young has filed a statement of organization with the state board of elections as a first step toward seeking the Republican nomination for governor in 2014.
This means he can start raising money for his campaign. He wants to raise at least $300,000 in about 120 days.
