GOP presidential contender Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) will participate in a “tele-townhall” with New York businessman Donald Trump on Monday.
“This is an incredible opportunity for you and everyone from Team Bachmann to hear from a businessman who knows firsthand that Barack Obama’s failed policies are crippling our nation’s job creators,” said Bachmann in an email to supporters.
“Donald Trump and I will discuss the state of the race, along with the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead,” she added.
During the tele-townhall scheduled for 8 p.m. ET on Oct. 17, Bachmann and Trump will answer questions from the audience.
Trump considered entering the GOP race earlier in the year and has yet to close the door on a possible presidential bid.
GOP candidates have traveled to New York to meet with the business mogul to seek his advice and possible endorsement.

(Salisbury) – Republican entrepreneur and Eastern Shore native Rob Fisher today announced the launch of the first television ads in the campaign for Maryland’s 1st District Congressional seat.
“Over the last few months, I have met hundreds of Marylanders and I’m very excited by the strong encouragement I have received so far,” said Fisher. “Our media strategy combined with our grassroots outreach will strongly increase First District voters’ awareness that they finally have a choice: Instead of another career politician, they can send a Representative to Congress with real-world experience who will put people ahead of party and help lead our country back to prosperity.”
The initial ad begins airing Wednesday June 9 and highlights Fisher’s business experience and the need to change the way things are done in Washington. It is the first in a series of ads that will run through the Republican primary on September 14.
“Voters need to know there is an alternative to politics as usual in this election,” said Fisher. “First District residents want a representative who will put Maryland first and work to solve our problems, instead of blindly following Nancy Pelosi and Congressional Democrats as they push our economy off a cliff with job-killing programs and runaway spending.”
The ad will also be available on the campaign’s website, www.robfisherforcongress.com beginning June 9.
Rob Fisher to Run For Congress
(Salisbury) Republican Rob Fisher today announced he will run for Congress in Maryland’s First District after submitting a Statement of Candidacy to the Federal Elections Commission (FEC). A small businessman, veteran and Eastern Shore native, Fisher is looking to bring real leadership to Congress that puts the needs of Maryland residents first.
“At a time when the people of the First District are struggling to make ends meet, Congress is more concerned with forcing job-killing legislation down the throats of taxpayers instead of helping lead us through these turbulent economic times,” said Fisher. “Maryland deserves a representative with real-world experience who will put people ahead of party and bring an entrepreneurial spirit to Congress. I pledge to be a tireless advocate for my constituents and make job creation my first priority.”
A serial entrepreneur who has run several successful small businesses in the First District and the Capitol Region, Fisher knows first-hand the challenges faced by small businesspeople and the barriers to success that have been championed by Nancy Pelosi and Congressional Democrats. Fisher’s current company, Secure Infrastructure Solutions — a Cyber Security firm helping to safeguard America’s National Security assets — has been able to grow and expand despite the terrible economic conditions of the past two years.
“My company has grown in spite of Congress, not because of it,” said Fisher. “Small businesses need government to be their loudest cheerleader, not their biggest detractor.”
Fisher will run an issues-based, grassroots campaign that will focus on the needs of the residents of the First District. His campaign will be opening offices on the Eastern Shore, Anne Arundel County and the Baltimore area.
“The First District needs a Congressman who will put Maryland first,” said Fisher. “Career politicians have had their chance. It’s time for Congress to show real leadership, listen to the people’s concerns and find innovative solutions to our country’s problems.”
Mr. Fishers office number is 443-859-3342.
