The Votes Are In

We analyze the results of Maryland's Primary Election. Upsets? Surprises? What’s ahead for November’s general election? Last night, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton won big in Maryland; Catherine Pugh became Baltimore’s presumptive next mayor; and Chris Van Hollen soared past Donna Edwards in the Democratic race to replace Senator Barbara Mikulski. Join our panel of political experts - Andrew Green, opinion editor at The Baltimore Sun, Washington College political scientist Melissa Deckman, and Maryland Public Television correspondent Charles Robinson - and share your thoughts related to the election. We’ll talk turnout - West Baltimore community group No Boundaries reports record turnout in Sandtown - as well as the roles of race, gender, and money in politics.
