As a blistering rematch for Montgomery County executive between incumbent Marc Elrich and Potomac businessman David Blair winds down this week, the Democratic primary candidates are again stuck where they were four years ago: watching and waiting. Elrich eked out a 77-vote win in 2018, looking to make his mark as the leader of the deep-blue county, where the primary victor typically prevails in November. This time he had a track record as executive to defend, and repeatedly found himself on the ropes in a contest that became increasingly negative as Tuesday’s primary election neared.
