With Brown Dominant In New Poll, Gubernatorial Upset Unlikely

With recent polling data out on the governor's race, it looks very unlikely that either of the Democratic challengers to Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown will pull a Harry Hughes. WYPR's Fraser Smith and Karen Hosler talk about the poll and that remarkable 1978 gubernatorial primary.

WYPR's Fraser Smith and Christopher Connelly talk about why David Craig, despite a long history in Maryland politics, was unable to qualify for public campaign financing in his bid for governor.

Why Have There Been So Few Black Governors?

Jun 5, 2014

Maryland’s 2014 gubernatorial race is full of potential firsts.

What did he know and when did he know it?

The four contenders for the Republican nomination to be Maryland’s next governor met this afternoon for their second and final debate before the June 24 primary.

  The governor’s race on the democratic side has gotten progressively more heated, and more negative. And the final TV debate before the June 24 primary featured a fair amount of mud slinging.  Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, Attorney General Doug Gansler and Del. Heather Mizeur faced off Monday night in front of an audience of undecided voters.

WYPR's Fraser Smith and Andy Green of the Baltimore Sun talk about why Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown is appearing on a mailer that praises State Sen. Ulysses Currie, despite Currie's past indictment and censure for ethics violations.

Maryland Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan, Jr., was the last to throw his hat in the ring, but he has moved to the front of the polls and is sitting on the largest war chest.

WYPR's Fraser Smith and Alison Knezevich of the Baltimore Sun talk about contributions from developers--and from Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz--to a campaign fund that can be used to benefit members of a particular candidate "slate."

  Maryland’s increasingly contentious gubernatorial race got more negative Thursday when the top two Democratic candidates released tit-for-tat attack ads bashing each other. Campaign finance reports filed earlier this week show candidates with money to burn as the primary approaches.
