MARYLAND: In a surprise of the night… “A wealthy Potomac businessman whose very candidacy challenged state Democratic leaders won a hotly contested congressional primary in Western Maryland on Tuesday, setting up a battle for the seat in November that will help decide control of the House of Representatives,” the Baltimore Sun reports. “John Delaney, a banker and first-time candidate, managed to topple state Sen. Rob Garagiola in the race, even though leading Democrats in Annapolis such as Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller had the legislator in mind when they redrew the 6th Congressional District last year to make it more competitive. Delaney, who outspent Garagiola 3-to-1, will now face Republican Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett in November in a contest that is likely to be among the most expensive and closely watched in the country.”
