From E. Varney Kamah | GNN Correspondent | Maryland County |

As politicians around the country craving to gather huge supporters in their bid for the pending December 8, 2020, senatorial midterm election, voters are doing all to justify their link with a particular candidate who they believe in can make the difference.

One of such group that is making its presence felt in these elections is the group calling itself the ‘Friends of John A. Ballout’, addressing a news conference on Sunday, August 16, 2020, divorced from widespread speculation in the county that it is supporting the ‘John Biney’ quest for the senatorial bid in the pending midterm election in December of this year.

Address the media on the issue, the Chairman for Press and Propaganda of the Friend of John Ballout, Nichols Barti said the  purpose of the press conference is to debunk statement made Thomas Nimely on the 9th of August 2020 that the Friends of Ballout has given their support to James P. Biney candidate on the ticket of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) is untruth, adding, “This information is 100% percent false and misleading.

Noting, “We the Friends of John A. Ballout will remain committed in our quest to support Mr. Ballout in this Senatorial process until he becomes successful in his bid, we have nothing to do with Mr. Biney’ we will not support Biney, and we will never give our support to him because he’s not the rightful leader”, Nimely speaking on behalf of his organization said.

Also speaking, Abel S. Williams who is the Chairman of the Friends of Ballout in Pleebo district#2 Maryland county also lamented that he will make sure to organize more youths in the camp of Ballout be successful, and noted that Ballout is the best candidate in the county and at the same time called on Marylanders to join them support the senatorial bid of Mr.  John A. Ballout for positive change.
