Polling place

Polling place

This week, Marylanders went to the polls to cast ballots in the primaries. Winners included Ben Jealous, who Democrats chose to run against Governor Larry Hogan in November, and Angela Alsobrooks, Democratic nominee for Prince George’s County Executive. In a dramatic turn, the Democratic primary in Montgomery County’s Executive race is still too close to call.

We check in with two winners from Tuesday’s election, Amie Hoeber, the Republican pick to represent Maryland’s sixth district, and Democratic Senator Ben Cardin. We also talk to Corey Stewart, the Republican tapped to challenge Tim Kaine in the Senate race in Virginia.

We also discuss the shooting at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis.
