Delegate 31B Primary Results

Comments: Jeremiah Chiappelli and Doug Morris move forward making Stan Janor the odd man out on the Democrat side of this race. Stan had the only online presence of those candidates and I will be hard pressed to follow this race going forward if the other candidates don’t get online soon. Nic Kipke wins on the Republican side (this was really not a sursprise at all). The real race turned out to be for second place. Meagan Simonaire took that slot easily. This was not a total surprise but the margin did surprise me a little. I was a big fan of Brian Chisholm’s online strategy and was a little disappointed that he finished 4th on the Republican side of this race. I hope to see more from him in future races. You have to believe that Kipke and Simonaire have a significant advantage going forward based on the number of votes cast in the Primary.

Comments – On the Republican side of the race Kevin Schmidt wins big taking over 65% of the vote. It was a much more competitive race on the Democrat side of the ticket. Wendy Royalty finished third. I was a big fan of her overall social media outreach during the campaign. Lisa Markovitz finished second. Lisa made a significant push on social media during the final three weeks of the race. We can only wonder what might have happened had she started that push just a little earlier. Winning the Democratic primary was Jon Weinstein. Jon had taken significant follower advantages on Facebook and Twitter in June and takes the win by over 200 votes over Lisa Markovitz. You have to think that Jon holds a slight advantage over Kevin going forward based on the total number of votes cast in the Primary.

Maryland State Delegate – District 04 – Primary Results

Delegate District 4 Primary Results

 

Comments: Gene Stanton was the only Democrat running so he moves on to the next round. The Republican side of the race turned out very interesting results. Candidates teamed up (Schultz and Peters vs Afzali, Ciliberti and Vogt). Well they sort of split as the current Delegates (Afzali and Schultz) move forward and they bring with them Vogt. I was a little surprised as I had high hopes for Peters. I think what hurt her was that she and Schultz were on the losing side of the very contested Senate race. Peters did have my favorite social media campaign in this race. It will be interesting to see if the GOP candidates come together going forward.

Delegate Afzali was one of the Delegates that voted against the Labor and Employment – User Name and Password Privacy Protection and Exclusions bill in 2012. In a future post I will write a more detailed analysis about this bill and why it is important. If you like social media this is an important fact you should look into before voting in November.

Maryland Congress 6th Primary Results

Comments – No surprises in this race. John Delaney ran unopposed. Dan Bongino was expected to win big and he did not disappoint getting over 83% of the Republican votes. So this sets up a Delaney vs Bongino matchup in November. As previously reported Dan Bongino holds a significant technology outreach advantage and he may need every bit of it. Independents and getting out the vote may very well decide this race in the end.

AACE Primary Results

Comments – George Johnson ran unopposed so not much to say about that side of the race. The Republican side of the race was a different story. Neuman and Schuh were pretty tough on each other at times and the race turned out to be pretty close. Steve Schuh won by less than 3,000 votes. Based on the total number of votes cast the General Election could be closer than I originally anticipated. Steve Schuh holds a significant technology outreach advantage over George Johnson and reaching out to independents will be important between now and November.

Comments – No real story here. Neither candidate was challenged in the Primary so both move forward. These are two of my favorite candidates in the state. They are both excellent at utilizing technology for outreach to potential voters. The voter numbers above would indicate that Courtney Watson would be considered the favorite but I do like the approach that the Allen Kittleman team is using reaching out to Democrats and Independents. They will need a great many of those voters in November. I will be sure to keep a close eye on this race going forward.

Maryland State Delegate – District 12 – Primary Results

Howard County Districts

Here are the results of the Primary Election on June 24th

Primary Results Delegate 12

Comments – It was great to see that the two candidates that received the most votes were on my technology outreach leader list (Lam and Hill). Ebersole was well deserving of his third place finish. I was a little disappointed that Stewart (also on my technology outreach leader list) finished in fifth. I really liked what he was doing with his online outreach effort. All three Republicans get through uncontested. Based on the total number of votes cast and the overall technology outreach I give the Democrats a significant advantage going into November. I look forward to seeing if the Republican candidates step it up now that the Primary is over.

Comments – Dan Rupli ran unopposed so not much to report on that side of the race. The real story of this race was David Brinkley challenged by Michael Hough. It was not a big surprise that Michael Hough won but the margin of victory was a bit of surprise to me. I really thought it would be a closer race. Michael Hough holds a SIGNIFICANT technology outreach advantage and given the voter turnout in the Primary Election one would have to assume that he holds a significant advantage going into November.

Comments – Neither candidate had a primary challenger so not much drama here. Based on the votes received one would have to think that Kasemeyer has a significant advantage going into November.

Comments – Similar to District 12, neither candidate face a primary opponent. Guy Guzzone has to be considered a significant favorite going into November based on the votes received in the Primary.
