Maryland's 2014 Primary Election Results: Governor's Race Set

Which candidates will be contenders for the governor's seat?

The Maryland primary was June 24. The general election is Nov. 4, 2014.
The Maryland primary was June 24. The general election is Nov. 4, 2014.
With the Maryland governor's seat up for grabs, the 2014 primary was bound to be eventful, and according to Politico, it was the "ugliest statewide Democratic primary in the country."

In fact, on Tuesday, the Montgomery County Education Association filed suit and asked for a restraining order against gubernatorial candidate Attorney General Doug Gansler for producing handouts resembling the association's "apple ballots" containing information it had not endorsed, according to The Washington Post.

When the Associated Press called the Democratic race around 9:30 p.m., it was Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown and Howard County Executive Ken Ulman who came away with the nomination.

"There's no one better to continue our progress and lead Maryland into the future," Gov. Martin O'Malley said regarding the news of Brown's projected win.

Larry Hogan secured the Republican nomination just before 11 p.m. when Harford County Executive David Craig conceded, according to The Baltimore Sun.

"The politicians who have been responsible for this mess in our state for the last eight years say they deserve another four years because they have been 'Moving Maryland Forward,'" Hogan said in his acceptance speech. "Well, if that's moving Maryland forward, then I say this November, the people of this great state are just going to have to take Maryland back!"

The general election will be on Tuesday, Nov. 4.

Here's the breakdown of votes in the primary as of 2:26 a.m. Wednesday, according to the Maryland Board of Elections, with 1982 of 1988 precincts reporting:

Blow the dog whistle and move all the old cranks to Mississippi where YOU can stew together. Maryland will always be progressive and more diverse every year. So it's best for everyone of you leave soon.

For personal reasons, I can't move or I'd be outta here in a NY minute. I was born here and have lived here all my life. Now I'm doomed to die here and put up with all the progressive s**t.

Why is the Patch focused on State-wide results and not reporting on the local elections? I can get all the news I want about Brown's win - want to know who is representing me on County Council and in State Legislation.
