2012 Maryland Senate Race - Primary Election Candidates
Description of Election
We have this election marked as a solid Democrat, as Maryland has been largely blue for quite some time. This was seen in the primary as more people for the incumbent Democratic Senator than all the Republican nominees.
A wide field of candidates for both parties created a very lively primary. On the Democratic side, Senator Cardin was able to get 74% of the vote despite 8 other contestants in the primary. On the Republican side, 10 candidates competed for the nomination with Daniel Bongino winning that contest with just 34% of the vote.
