By Meymo Lyons

If Democrat Doug Gansler can expect opposition in the race for Maryland attorney general, candidates are waiting until the last minute to let him know. As of 11 a.m., Gansler, who is the incumbent, did not have a Democratic or Republican opponent. Maryland's deadline to file for candidacy in November's election is 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Maryland's House of Delegates will clearly have a number of new faces after the election. At least 15 delegates are running for other offices, mostly in the state Senate. Seven other delegates have either retired or moved to another job. Maryland's primary is Sept. 14th.
