What happened Tuesday in the Maryland General Assembly races to watch

November 9, 2022

Tuesday’s election was a test of Maryland’s Democratic-controlled General Assembly. Democrats currently hold 99 seats in the House of Delegates and 32 seats in the state Senate — large enough majorities in both houses to overturn a veto. Here’s a roundup of some of the most interesting General Assembly results from Tuesday. Vote counts represent preliminary election results with some precincts still counting Election Day and mail-in ballots. State Senate District 9, representing Howard and Montgomery counties: Democratic incumbent Sen. Katie Fry Hester appears to be holding onto her seat in the closely watched race for District 9. Hester had narrowly defeated Republican Sen. Gail Bates in 2018, flipping the district — which had represented Howard and Carroll counties at the time — from red to blue.
