I’ve started on an analysis of last night’s results, but it’s going to take some time to get my thoughts in order. So here’s some random thoughts. Congratulations to the winners: Chris Van Hollen, Jamie Raskin and Anthony Brown. Lots of friends with all of those campaigns, congratulations to each and every one of them.

Because four precinct locations in Baltimore City opened an hour late this morning, a judge in the City ordered that those locations remain open till 9:00.

OK, this might be the craziest thing I’ve ever seen. Anthony Brown has an enormous campaign debt left over from the 2014 general election – over $400,000 to the Laborers Union at 10% interest. Now, Brown has filed his last campaign finance report, in which he raised only $160,000, spent over $600,000, but astonishingly has loaned himself ANOTHER $400,000. Leaving… Read more »
