Additional information from the Public Interest Podcast website:
Endorsements were evaluated based upon standardized criteria. Endorsement decisions were not taken lightly and, because Public Interest Podcast is non-partisan, in no way was Party affiliation considered in the endorsement process. Endorsements have been issued based exclusively upon candidate responses to the survey questions with a preference for affirmative responses to these questions. No other information (i.e. campaign viability, incumbency, etc.) was taken into account in considering the issuance of our endorsements.
88 endorsements were made from a pool of 153 submitted questionnaires. Questionnaires were submitted to every candidate running in Maryland for the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, Governor, Comptroller, Attorney General, State Senator, State Delegate, and Circuit Court Judge. Endorsements were limited to the number of possible victors in any single race and only considered candidates that submitted a completed questionnaire.
