Best Guesses At Who Will Win:
One local blogger has made his predictions of what will happen today…read here: https://spartanconsiderations.blogspot.com/2020/02/md-cd-7-final-special-primary-election.html.
I think his top 5 on the Dems side is correct…but I am not sure I agree with the order of his top 5. We all have guesses and in the end we will find out later tonight who will move forward.
I also have guesses on the other side of the isle in this race. I think it is a two person race on the other side…and will be interesting to see who comes out on top.
All of this will give me a story for tomorrow…so stay tuned.
