No Upsets for State Senate Seats in So. Md.

By David Noss

CALIFORNIA, Md. (November 2, 2010)—With all precincts in Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary's counties reporting, there were no upsets in state senate seats for legislative districts 27, 28, or 29, which encompass all of southern Maryland.

The closest race was in the 29th between incumbent Roy Dyson (D) and challenger Steve Waugh (R). Dyson kept his seat by a margin of 51.32% to 48.62% (20,623 to 19,537 votes). Based on the Republican and Democratic voter turnout in the primary, it looked like Waugh had a solid chance to capture the seat.

Incumbent Thomas Middleton (D) easily held onto his seat in the 28th in Charles County. His 69.52% of the vote easily trumped Republican challenger Jay Bala, who held only 30.46%. There was one write-in vote.

The widest margin of victory was held by incumbent and senate president, Thomas V. Mike Miller, Jr. (D) in the 27th. His challenger, Vernon R. Hayes, Jr. only convinced 28.76% of the voters to go his way.
