Sizing Up Maryland's Congressional Races


The Maryland Congressional race is heating up. Congresswoman Donna Edwards (D-4th District) is giving up her seat to run for the Senate seat being vacated next year by retiring Senator Barbara Mikulski. Edwards’ district includes parts of Anne Arundel and Prince George’s County. Six Democrats are vying for the nomination in the 4th District to succeed Edwards. 

In the 8th district, Congressman Chris Van Hollen, who represents Montgomery County, is also relinquishing his House seat for a run at Senator Mikulski's soon-to-be-vacant office. Nine Democrats, including some well-funded political novices, have thrown their hats in the ring to be their party's nominee to fill Van Hollen's House seat.  

John Fritze, Washington correspondent for the Baltimore Sun and Todd Eberly, Chair & Professor of political science at St. Mary's College and proprietor of the FreeStater blog,  join Tom to discuss these and other significant congressional races.
