Description

Democratic Rep. Chris Van Hollen will face Republican state Delegate Kathy Szeliga in the general election for U.S. Senate in Maryland. Both candidates soundly beat out their competitors to secure their parties' nominations Tuesday, setting up a showdown in November for the seat to be vacated by retiring Sen. Barbara Mikulski. Szeliga has an uphill climb in fundraising and voter registration. Democrats outnumber Republicans in Maryland 2-1, but she's lining up a not-so-secret weapon: Gov. Larry Hogan. Szeliga's campaign told 11 News on Wednesday that plans are in the works for a formal endorsement.
