Also, I get incessant mailers from all sides, as I'm a registered D, but make contributions to Rs. The hit pieces and mud-slinging ads are only coming from the Ds, and the consensus is that they are feeling the hurt.

Is anyone else seeing a shift from a D focus to R in their areas??
How well are they funded compared to their opponents?

Thanks' for pointing that out, he's on my Ballot as well.

or Court of Special Appeals at Large Judge Donald Beachley?

I really don't know any details, but I do know that there is more county and state party support this time than in 2014, but also that private donations are up.

There is a real feeling of change in the area. I'm just wondering if it's in other areas, too.

That's good to know! Could that same momentum carry on into D. 30 - especially 30A?

I think this could be a good year for Republicans in MD. A safe Democratic Senate seat + a non-competitive governor's race could keep people away from the polls.

I def think that the Democrats are having buyer's remorse over Ben Jealous. The only people he's exciting are the openly socialist/communist wing of the party and he seems to be plagued by missteps like saying he's running for Governor of VA or going to campaign for Governor of MD in California.

We cannot AND MUST NOT underestimate our opposition! There are MANY other races to consider and we need to be there for those people! Submit post cards to people whom you know, talk to people and GET THE VOTE OUT ANY WAY YOU CAN!!!!!! I've said it before and I'll say it again, if you like what I've wrote in my initial entry here, you have my permission to share it with whomever you wish!

I haven't heard anything directly about 30A or B. One question... Has Busch started going negative? That could be a 'tell'.

In any case, the early belief was that Busch is even more vulnerable this cycle than last. Whether the Rs ground game is up to it, I couldn't tell you, but I certainly hope so.

Busch nearly lost his seat last time. Now he needs to lose his shirt.

Steve Schuh's and/or Nic Kipke's campaigns may be able to shed more light on it.

Dist.29 still a Deb Rey hater think not ! If you are not paying attention... The debate between Deb Rey and Brian Crosby was pretty interesting this week. We learned that Brian Crosby wants to do two significant things on the Second Amendment front...

1) He wants to have a mental health screenings where you have to go be evaluated by someone as part of the gun purchasing process.

2) He wants to limit round capacities to five rounds - effectively banning most guns including many revolvers.

That is all...

I have 7 choices for Circuit Court judges, but I know nothing about any of them.

Bonifant, Cho, Cummins, Dwyer, Hessler, Lease and Schweitzer.

Anyone have info?
