Weather in Maryland is very bad right now. Bridges are shut down all around Baltimore, Annapolis, Chestertown, and the broader Eastern Shore.
So the State of Maryland where I occasionally reside has decided to get CNN, MSNBC, Fox and other network pundits some overtime pay by keeping the polls open an extended 90 minutes.
Two races I care about at the primary level are incumbent Wayne Gilchrest (R-MD-01) in the Republican House race — and Donna Edwards in the MD-04 Democratic Primary.
I saw Gilchrest yesterday morning campaigning in 15 degree weather at an Eastern Shore DC commuter bus stop — and TWN‘s good friend, the progressive activist and blogging guru Matt Stoller, is out in the miserable weather tonight canvassing for Donna Edwards.
Good luck to both Edwards and Gilchrest — both of whom are enlightened about the need to move in a different foreign policy course than we are currently on.
