Our eighth monthly roundup of candidates for General Assembly is hopefully complete through the June 24 primary. The Feb. 25 filing deadline has passed, as has the Feb. 27 withdrawal deadline, and the March 4 deadline for the major parties to fill open ballot positions when no one has filed.
As we did last month, we include campaign fundraising totals from 2013 filed with the State Board of Elections in January. The next campaign finance reports are due April 15.
We have tried to list every candidate who has filed or filed and withdrawn. We have added figures for Cash on hand, amount Raised in 2013, and Loans or Debts when significant.
Each district is listed by county and, in most cases, incumbents (in parentheses) with their status.
The districts reflect new district lines, which have placed some incumbents into a different district. Each legislative district has one senator and three delegates, often split into subdistricts of one or two delegates. Many of the subdistricts were changed in the last redistricting, and voters are often finding out about this for the first time.
Note: the following summaries apply only to districts in southern
Maryland. For the entire Maryland-wide report, please
