That was some election with high turnout everywhere. The results were close enough for a recount in the 64th District House race but Maria Horn's victory was upheld though.
Congratulations and thanks to all the candidates and all the volunteers in Salisbury and elsewhere that worked so hard to make this a good year not only for Democrats but for our state and our country too.

Everyone pictured below was elected or re-elected except for David Lawson in the 30th State Senate race. We thank him for his hard work this year and in 2016. That district is a tough nut to crack for Democrats and he gave it two good shots.
Both ballot questions passed too. This is just the beginning though. 2020 is just around the corner and we will need to build on our success.
