ELECTION 2018: And the winners were…along with our prediction score!

| November 7, 2018

Well, the results are in and there were certainly a lot of surprises in the local Anne Arundel County races. Below are our predictions presented yesterday with the winners highlighted in bold.  When we added them all up, we figure we have about 75% correct. Not great, but not too shabby.  The shockers were Adams, Schuh, and Arnold!

We take out our crystal ball and offer some predictions on today’s races in Anne Arundel County. They are NOT endorsements, but simply reasonably reasoned guesses based on conversations with candidates, their supporters and detractors, and just the general conversation around the county.

We have a pretty good track record on these since 2009. Certainly not perfect, but more right than wrong!  We will recap these as the results come in and give ourselves a critique when all the dust settles.

We looked at the following races:

  • Governor — Larry Hogan and Ben Jealous
  • Comptroller — Anjali Phukan and Peter Franchot
  • Attorney General — Craig Wolf and Brian Frosh
