Competitiveness

At least one candidate from both major parties faced off in the general election in 56 (84.8%) of the 66 districts up for election.

Primary challenges

A total of 72 incumbents faced primary competition on June 24, mostly in multi-member districts. Forty-three incumbents did not seek re-election in 2014 and another 26 (18.4%) of the current 141 incumbents advanced past the primary without opposition. Primary challenges included:

  • District 2A: Incumbents Neil C. Parrott and Andrew A. Serafini defeated David C. Hanlin in the Republican primary.
  • District 5: Incumbent Donald B. Elliott lost his bid for re-election in the seven-way Republican primary.
  • District 24: Incumbent Darren Swain, who was appointed in January 2013, lost his bid for a full term in the ten-way Democratic primary.
  • District 31B: Incumbent Don Dwyer, Jr. lost his bid for re-election in the eight-way Democratic primary.
  • District 40: Incumbent Shawn Z. Tarrant lost his bid for re-election in the 10-way Democratic primary.

  • District 44A: District 44 was split in two by redistricting, with Democratic incumbents Keith E. Haynes, Keiffer J. Mitchell, Jr. and Melvin L. Stukes battling each other for one seat in District 44A. Haynes won the Democratic primary.
  • District 47A: District 47 was split in two by redistricting, with incumbent Michael Summers facing competition from four other Democrats in the race for two seats in District 47A. Summers lost his bid for re-election in the Democratic primary.

Retiring incumbents

Forty-three incumbent representatives did not run for re-election, while 98 (69.5%) ran for re-election. A list of those incumbents, 28 Democrats and 15 Republicans, can be found above.

Impact of redistricting

See also: Redistricting in Maryland

Between 2000 and 2010 Maryland's population grew by 9 percent, just below the national average. Baltimore saw its power decrease as it shrank by some 30,000 residents. For legislative redistricting, the Governor is responsible for drafting plans and submitting the new maps to the General Assembly. The Governor appoints an advisory commission to assist in this task. Under the state Constitution, each district is required to have one Senator and three Delegates.

The Governor’s Redistricting Advisory Committee released a proposed map of new legislative districts on December 16, 2011, increasing the number of majority black districts from 10 to 12. Democrats voiced support for the plan, while Republicans criticized it for being divisive and highly partisan. The Fannie Lou Hamer Political Action Committee, a black activist group, threatened to sue the state if the map was approved by the legislature, arguing that the plan violated the federal Voting Rights Act by purposely reducing black influence and violated state laws by splitting more boundaries and counties than was necessary.[1]

In the end the legislature decided on inaction, letting the governor's plan become law on February 24, 2012, without taking a vote. A number of alternative maps were proposed in the House, but none of them received committee hearings.[2]

List of candidates

Note: Districts have three seats each except where noted. The number of seats in a district defines how many candidates can win in either party's primary; for example, District 2A has two seats, meaning the two Democrats running were effectively unopposed in their primary and the top two finishers in the Republican primary advanced to the general election.
