ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Experts say that despite a deep field of candidates, the race to represent Maryland in the U.S. Senate is not very competitive.
University of Maryland Baltimore County political science professor Laura Hussey said Sen. Benjamin Cardin is largely expected to earn the Democratic nod in Tuesday’s primary election. However, state Sen. Anthony Muse, who is among the eight candidates challenging Cardin, says he is confident his grassroots campaign has made enough inroads to topple the incumbent.
Hussey says that of the 10 Republicans who want to challenge Cardin in the general election the front runner appears to be Daniel Bongino, a former Secret Service agent from Severna Park.
