    That's almost as bad at the MD GOP. They have already scraped the bottom of the barrel and are now resorting to random some dudes that have enough money for their own filing fees. The Senate candidate in 2012 was some random former secret service agent that had never run for anything before. In 2010, the best they could muster to run against Sen. Mikulski was a county commissioner from Queen Anne's county. They may have to settle for a janitor to run for governor in 2014, unless they can get Peter Franchot to switch to the party he belongs in.

    •  Milkulski will probably retire in 2016 (0+ / 0-)

      My guess is this is her last term since she will be about 80 in 2016. Should be quite a battle to get the democratic nomination assuming she retires unless O'Malley decides he wants to be a senator.
      There no republican party here and really no hope of them ever becoming competitive any time soon.
