Incumbents Rule 35A
Republican incumbents Donna Stifler and Wayne Norman cruised to victory in the delegate race for District 35A.
Jacobs Claims Victory
Nancy Jacobs has claimed victory in the race for the District 34 State Senate seat.
Jacobs trailed by a narrow margin in Harford County after 1 a.m. Wednesday. But a strong performance in Cecil County went a long way towards victory for the incumbent.
"Cecil County has always been good to me, but Harford has always been good to me, too," Jacobs said. "I have a lot of Democrats in my district. I'm excited."
Jacobs stood behind her campaign against Democratic challenger Art Helton, who said Tuesday night he "lost Cecil fairly big."
"I was satisfied with my campaign. I did every conceivable thing that I've planned to do. I have no regrets with how I ran my campaign," Helton said. "I'm just sorry I was not successful."
James, Glass Win 34A
Mary-Dulany James won a fourth term for state delegate in District 34A Tuesday night, leading a pack of four candidates for two positions in Annapolis.
James had 29 percent of the votes in the four-person race for two seats with ten percent of precincts left to report at 1 a.m. Wednesday
The Havre de Grace native stood behind what she called a positive campaign.
"I look at this as a huge victory for me. One, they responded to me. And two, I didn't have to go negatively," James said. "I tribute that to my voters. I think they do respond. If they're given a choice, they will choose [the positive campaign.]"
James initially won the seat in 1998, and was re-elected in 2002 and 2006.
Glass was leading the other seat with 27-of-30 precincts reporting, and is projected to win. Glass had 10,347 votes (25.34 percent) to lead McGrady's 9,310 (22.8 percent) and Posey-Moss's 9,203 (22.54 percent). Ten percent of precincts had yet to report.
