Maryland – Wednesday, November 4th, the Maryland Democratic Party released the following statement as the Associated Press projects large victories for Democrats across the state:
The AP has called victories for Maryland Representatives Dutch Ruppersberger (MD-2), John Sarbanes (MD-3), Anthony Brown (MD-4), Steny Hoyer (MD-5), David Trone (MD-6), Kweisi Mfume (MD-7), and Jamie Raskin (MD-8). Along with these victories, the AP called a decisive win for Baltimore City Mayor-elect Brandon Scott.
Victories have also been projected for Baltimore City Council President-elect Nick Mosby, City Comptroller-elect Bill Henry, and Baltimore City Council members Zeke Cohen (District 1), Danielle McCray (District 2), Ryan Dorsey (District 3), Mark Conway (District 4), Isaac Schleifer (District 5), Sharon Middleton (District 6), James Torrence (District 7), Kristerfer Burnett (District 8), John Bullock (District 9), Phylicia Porter (District 10), Eric Costello (District 11), Robert Stokes (District 12), Antonio Glover (District 13), and Odette Ramos (District 14). Statement from the Maryland Democratic Party is below:
“These victories across the state show that voters are ready for a government that works for them. With our fantastic delegation in Washington and Mayor-elect Scott in Baltimore, there’s no limit to what we can accomplish together. It’s time to restore the soul of our nation. We look forward to continued victories tonight, and a better future for Maryland and America.”
Maryland’s first district congressional district has also been called, where Mia Mason mounted a strong challenge against incumbent Andy Harris in a historically Republican district. Statement from the Maryland Democratic Party is below:
“Mia Mason ran a strong, historic campaign. In a traditionally Red district, Mia made critical inroads and built an invaluable infrastructure that will create the foundation for a Democratic 1st district in years to come. By showing up across the district, fighting for every vote, and talking to voters about the issues that matter to them, Mia was able to overperform what the pundits predicted and make the race competitive. We are deeply grateful for the work she has done. Her tireless efforts, along with those of her dedicated volunteers who were truly invaluable, have shown Maryland that the Eastern Shore is ready to go Blue.”
We look forward to every vote being counted, and to see the final results.
