July 22, 2022

As election workers started to count mail-in ballots, Ivan Bates increased his lead on Thursday in the Democratic primary for Baltimore state’s attorney, a race that will likely help determine the direction of criminal justice in the city moving forward. Bates, 53, of Locust Point, a defense attorney who’s the managing partner of Bates and Garcia, P.C. and served as an assistant state’s attorney in the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office from 1996-2002, has earned 23,616 votes (40.4%). State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, 42, of Reservoir Hill, who’s seeking a third term, has received 17,927 votes (30.7%), according to unofficial election results from the Maryland State Board of Elections and Baltimore City Board of Elections.
