What a day! Yesterday’s primary elections brought several surprises, both right here in Maryland, and across the country. The headlines today were filled with spin from both sides, and our panel today takes a look at the results and seeks to unpack what they really mean for the political landscape in Maryland and nationally. What does Tea Party-supported Christine O’Donnell’s victory over establishment candidate Delegate Mike Castle in the Republican Senate primary mean for the GOP? Does candidate Ann McLane Kuster’s victory over Katrina Swett in a New Hampshire Congressional primary herald growing progressive power?
And, of course, what will the final count show in the contest between Gregg Bernstein and Patricia Jessamy, in the primary for Baltimore City State’s Attorney?
Anthony McCarthy co-hosts a discussion with:
Anne McCarthy, Associate Dean at the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School and former Republican candidate for Comptroller
Charles Robinson, Reporter and Associate Producer at Maryland Public Television
Trae Lewis, President of the Baltimore Area Young Republicans
Jason Rosenbaum, Senior Online Campaign Director of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee
