State Sen. Adelaide Eckardt’s long political career is coming to an apparent end. Eckardt, a political fixture on the Eastern Shore and in Annapolis for decades, lost a runoff to become mayor of Cambridge on Tuesday — two months after losing her reelection bid in the Republican primary. Eckardt was defeated by former Cambridge Commissioner Stephen Rideout. According to unofficial results posted on the city government’s Facebook page, Rideout received 681 votes, for 55%, to 557 votes (45%) for Eckardt.
