Maryland results for every midterm race
In Maryland, Democrats are trying to wipe out the few, but notable, Republican-held seats in the state as they try to unseat the state’s popular Gov. Larry Hogan and flip the state’s only Republican-held congressional seat.
If they succeed, Democrats will have elected the state’s first African-American governor in Ben Jealous, a progressive who’s previously served as president of the NAACP. That said, Jealous is still facing a major uphill battle against Hogan, a popular moderate Republican who has maintained a double-digit lead in the polls throughout this election cycle.
And Jealous isn’t the only Democrat with a near-insurmountable challenge in November. On Maryland’s eastern shore, Jesse Colvin, a former US Army Ranger, is trying to win a heavily gerrymandered district represented by ultra-conservative Rep. Andy Harris. Colvin is running a boots-on-the-ground campaign to try to convince Maryland’s most conservative district to vote for his brand of centrism.
The state heavily favors Democrats, who control both chambers of the legislature by comfortable margins. The entire state legislature is on the ballot today.
President Donald Trump is heavily unpopular in this blue state, with a sky-high 60 percent disapproval rating, according to Morning Consult.
