It’s A Seat “we see changing hands” Says Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball

MARYLAND Yesterday, March 11th, Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball, one of the top nonpartisan election analysis groups in the country, predicted that Democrats would flip the Maryland Governorship in the 2022 election. It would be a tough hold for the GOP,said the Crystal Ball, and a state we see changing hands.”

The Crystal Ball also noted that while far-right Trump associates like Rep. Andy Harris (MD-1), who voted against the American Rescue Plan, may run for Governor — driving a Trump loyalty race-to-the-bottom primary. They would be rejected by Marylanders with a similarly historic margin as the former president. 

“It’s not surprising top analysts are predicting Maryland Democrats will win up and down the ballot in 2022. With Republicans racing further and further to the right and Democrats delivering real results for Marylanders, the choice has never been more clear, said Maryland Democratic Party Chair Yvette Lewis. “Voters have seen the successes of President Biden’s American Rescue Plan, and the hard work of our Democratic delegation and General Assembly.  Just like Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball, we’re confident that our state will once again reject the far-right Trumpist values of today’s Republican Party, and in 2022, we’ll elect a Democratic Governor who will work for the people.”

Sabato’s Crystal Ball correctly predicted forty-nine states in the 2020 Presidential Election and every gubernatorial race.
