Tom Hall checks in with WYPR reporter John Lee, who is with the John Olszewski Jr. campaign tonight, about what the race for Baltimore County Executive means for the state of Maryland. A win for Olszewski could indicate that a blue wave is real, while a victory for Al Redmer, Jr. would signify a Republican stronghold.
WYPR reporter Karen Hosler joins Tom to discuss the future of Maryland’s Congressional districts. Democrats have controlled the state's electoral map for the last 50 years, but if Republican Governor Larry Hogan is re-elected his administration may be responsible for outlining new Congressional districts.
Tom Hall and Mileah Kromer, the director of the Sarah T. Hughes Field Politics Center at Goucher College, discuss Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous' strategy to get a million votes and how economic issues played a role in voters' decision to support Jealous or incumbent Republican Governor Larry Hogan.
