2 lawmakers nominated to fill vacant state Senate seats
Two Democratic members of the House of Delegates have been nominated to fill vacant seats in the state Senate.
The Montgomery County Democratic Central Committee voted Wednesday night for Delegate Will Smith to replace former Sen. Jamie Raskin, who won Maryland’s 8th Congressional District seat.
Meanwhile, Delegate Barbara Robinson was nominated for the District 40 seat that became vacant when Sen. Catherine Pugh stepped down after winning Baltimore’s mayoral election.
Gov. Larry Hogan, a Republican, will make the nominations official. He is required to appoint someone to the seats from the party that held them.
