Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich has fended off challengers for his job in the Democratic primary, all but guaranteeing him a second term as the top local elected official in Maryland’s most populous locality. He won by a gossamer margin, beating his closest rival, businessman David Blair, by fewer than three dozen votes out of more than 141,000 cast. His victory was hard-fought and legitimate — it took election officials more than a month, including a recount, to tally the ballots.
