Cardin cruises to third term in Senate
GREENBELT — For the 52nd consecutive year, Maryland Democrat Ben Cardin has been elected to hold public office.
Cardin was elected to a third term in the United States Senate Tuesday, capturing the lion’s share of the vote on a rainy day in Maryland and earning an early call from the television networks.
“I can tell you that rain did not stop the enthusiasm of the voters,” Cardin told Capital News Service Tuesday evening outside Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt. “That gives me great encouragement about a ‘Blue Wave.’ So I’m very optimistic that we’re going to see great results here in Maryland and around the nation.”
“Voters are anxious to come out to vote, and they’re here,” the senator said. “They recognize that this midterm election is about the future of our country. So, you see the type of enthusiasm that you see in presidential years. And that’s very exciting to hear.”
