ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ)–Maryland goes to the polls. The Democrats dominate in sheer numbers of voters statewide, but because this is the primary election, all that means is the candidates for governor get to divvy up a bigger pie.
Political reporter Pat Warren reports everybody is in the same party and it is a beauty pageant.
The reigning Mr. Maryland has picked Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown as the man he’d most like to succeed him.
“I’ve been campaigning for Anthony Brown and Ken Ulman and Brian Frosh all day,” Gov. Martin O’Malley said.
And speaking of those he’s not campaigning for, Attorney General Doug Gansler bumped into O’Malley on the campaign trail Tuesday.
Gansler: “Hey, Governor.”
O’Malley: “How you doing today?…Welcome to Leisure World.”
Fewer words were never spoken.
Delegate Heather Mizeur sees her success in the swell of grassroots support and has those voters in her sights.
“We’re seeing it in every corner of the state,” Mizeur said.
For Gansler, it’s rounding the curve.
“We’re very confident that things are going to come our way from all the people we’ve talked to who have voted today. We’ve got a huge surge going on,” Gansler said.
But the most important job is yours.
“We’re just encouraging everyone in Maryland to get out, exercise that most important fundamental right to vote, and do it today before polls close at 8 p.m.” Brown said.
After these results are in, all of the candidates from this yearlong primary campaign are expected to pull together for Tuesday’s winner in the November general election.
