BKAS Recommendations for the primary in Maryland (early voting starts tomorrow and the primary is on June 26)

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

Maryland primary

Note that Maryland has closed primaries, which means you need to registered in the party to vote for their candidates in the primary.

Below are candidates from our BKAS series that have progressive values. In general, the list contains candidates who have Bernie-like positions – Medicare-for-All, increased minimum wage, getting money out of politics, free college tuition, etc. However, not every candidate may support every position Bernie has. If you don’t know the candidate, check out their linked webpage. If you are not comfortable voting for any of these candidates, you can find others running in these races listed on the Green Papers or Ballotpedia for US Senate, Ballotpedia for US House or Ballotpedia for Governor. Also, here are links to the BKAS posts on Maryland – Maryland 1, and Maryland 2, but note that they were written early-January of 2018 and candidates will have changed. Check the Green Papers or Ballotpedia links above for the most up-to-date list of candidates in your district. The list below includes some candidates that have declared since those original Maryland posts were made.


Finally, I may have missed some candidates, so if anyone else knows of a good progressive I’ve left off this list, let me know.


Governor:

Ben Jealous (endorsed by Our Revolution and Justice Democrats)

US Senator:

Chelsea Manning or Jerome Segal

US Representatives:

MD-01: Allison Galbraith or Michael Pullen

MD-02: Jake Pretot seems significantly more progressive than the incumbent, though he doesn’t mention Medicare-for-All on his website

MD-03: The incumbent John Sarbanes has co-sponsored HR676 (Medicare-for-All bill in Congress), but his challenger Adam DeMarco seems overall more progressive

MD-04: The incumbent Anthony Brown has cosponsored HR 676 (Medicare-for-All), though he is otherwise a rather moderate Democrat. He does not have a more progressive challenger.

MD-05: Dennis Fritz is much more progressive than the incumbent, Steny Hoyer, who is a quite conservative Democrat. However, Fritz does not specifically mention Medicare-for-All on his website. There is supposed to be a Green party candidate too, Patrick Elder, but I couldn’t find a website for him.

MD-06: There are lots of good candidates in this district. Roger Manno (endorsed by Our Revolution and Justice Democrats) or Andrew Duck or George English or Chris Graves or Ted Athey (Independent candidate)

MD-07: The incumbent Elijah Cummings is very progressive, a member of the House Progressive Caucus and an original co-sponsor of HR 676 (Medicare-for-All).

MD-08: The incumbent Jamie Raskin is very progressive, a Vice Chair of the House Progressive Caucus and an early co-sponsor of Medicare-for-All (HR 676). He has been endorsed by Our Revolution


Secretary of State: In Maryland, the Secretary of State is appointed by the Governor. However, the Secretary of State does not oversee elections in Maryland. That job is done by the Maryland State Board of Elections, which is also appointed by the Governor.


Also, here are Ballotpedia links for the Maryland State House and State Senate races. I haven’t had time to research these candidates, so you’ll have to do your own research on them.

State Senate:

Here are some specific House of Delegates candidates endorsed by Our Revolution:

Tommi Makila, State Senate District 27

Robbie Leonard, State Senate District 42


State House:

Here are some specific House of Delegates candidates endorsed by Our Revolution:

Samir Paul, State House District 16

Vaughn Stewart, State House District 19

Wala Blegay, State House District 25

Kirkland Hall, State House District 38

Gabriel Acevero, State House District 39

Richard Bruno, House District 41

So my Primary (Virginia) is Tomorrow, but I’m Completely Uneducated About Candidates

Are there any Berniecrats? Or any other advice for the primary? I'm certainly willing to go vote but there haven't been any election materials or anything. According to the local registrar's sample ballets:

Dem Primary: 9th District House of Representives Anthony Flaccavento vs. Justin D. Santopietro.

Rep Primary: Senate E.W. Stewart, E.W. Jackson, Nick J. Frietas

…I don't even understand why there are different races on each of these ballets, what's going on?
