Michael Steele, the former Maryland lieutenant governor who later had a bumpy tenure as Republican National Committee chairman before becoming a political analyst at MSNBC, said Monday he may run for governor in 2014.
It’s still a ways out, but the governor’s race is heating up as candidates begin throwing their names in the ring.
While seven of Maryland’s eight U.S. representatives and both its U.S. senators are Democrats, a new analysis of the state’s political landscape shows that a slim majority of local elected officials are Republicans.
The lessons of the 2012 election may change the way Marylanders vote in 2014. Some lawmakers say it’s time to expand early voting.
The move equates to lower production costs, and hopefully a lower sticker price too.
