Young Democrats Hold Straw Polls


 The Young Democrats of Maryland held their annual convention over the weekend – at which they heard presentations from the three frontrunners for the Democratic Party’s gubernatorial nomination. Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown, state Attorney General Doug Gansler, and Montgomery County Delegate Heather Mizeur all addressed the group, which is the official youth arm of the state Democratic Party. The Young Democrats also held a straw poll – which Lieutenant Governor Brown narrowly won, receiving 62 votes, enough to edge out Delegate Mizeur, who got 57; Attorney General Gansler came in a distant third, with just 12 votes. The group also heard from the three Democrats running to be the next state Attorney General; and the straw poll for that race put State Senator Brian Frosh in the lead… Frosh got nearly 3 times as many votes as Delegates Aisha Braveboy and Jon Cardin. The Democratic primary is set for June 24th.
