ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) Primary races in the Maryland State Senate are creating most of the drama for Sept. 14 primaries, particularly in the Maryland suburbs of the nation's capital.
They feature a variety of competitive contests in Montgomery and Prince George's counties.
Several Montgomery County incumbents, including Sens. Jennie Forehand, Nancy King and Mike Lenett, are in some of the more noteworthy Democratic primary races this year in the Senate.
Prince George's County incumbents, including Sens. David Harrington and Nathaniel Exum, have eager challengers as well.
There will be plenty of new faces in the House of Delegates in 2011. About two dozen delegates have either retired or left to run for other offices.
