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.
