Democratic Candidates For Governor Greet Voters In Final Primary Push
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ)—Only a day away. A campaign that started in June of last year ends Tuesday when voters choose candidates in the 2014 primary election.
Political reporter Pat Warren found Democrats for governor talking to voters Monday.
This is a campaign that sees no one giving up or taking the race for granted.
Candidates are heading to the finish. On the last leg, a lackluster campaign becomes an amazing race to get voters to the polls.
Maryland’s Democratic gubernatorial candidates get a second wind going into the primary on Tuesday.
The Brown-Ulman ticket split a schedule. Ulman was in Towson on Monday.
“We anticipate a strong showing tomorrow, but we tell everybody the only poll that matters is the one that closes at 8 o’clock tomorrow evening,” Ulman said.
Doug Gansler on Sunday made a literal point of his run.
“We’re very, very optimistic of the outcome. People are coming up to us at the Metros. People are coming up to us in Bethesda and Rockville and downtown Baltimore,” Gansler said.
Heather Mizeur shook hands at Waverly Farmers Market on Saturday and made her second campaign pitch in four days at Lexington Market on Monday.
“People are waking up to it in big ways. There’s been a huge shift that has happened in the last couple of weeks, and we’re just going to ride that wave of momentum to the victory line,” Mizeur said.
Less than 5 percent of eligible voters cast ballots during early voting.
This is the first time Maryland has had a primary in June this early in the year, so voter turnout on Tuesday is expected to be low.
