Maryland Primary Results

July 25, 2022

Last week, Maryland hosted the only primary election this month to select candidates to run in November’s general election. Below are the results of a few notable races:

Gubernatorial Primary
This fall’s gubernatorial election will be the biggest contest in Maryland as both political parties compete to succeed popular but term-limited Governor Larry Hogan (R).

State legislator and Trump-endorsed candidate Dan Cox (R) won the Republican gubernatorial primary with 56.2% of the vote. His primary opponent, former Maryland Secretary of Commerce Kelly Schulz (R), finished with 40.2%.

Results are still incomplete among Democrats, but Wes Moore (D) is leading the primary with 36.4% of the vote, followed by former Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez (D), with 27.6%, and Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot (D) with 19.5%.

Senate Primary
Incumbent Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) comfortably defeated a primary challenge with 78% of the vote. His opponent Michelle Smith (D), finished with 22% of the vote. Chris Chaffee (R) won the Republican Senate primary with just 22% of the vote. In November, Senator Van Hollen will be the heavy favorite against Chaffee. To view the full results, click here.
