Joshua Harris has won the contested Green Party primary for Baltimore mayor, and Nancy Wallace has won the contested primary for the Green nomination in Maryland’s Eighth U.S. House District.
Though the Maryland Green Party is ballot-qualified, the state of Maryland only sponsors Democratic and Republican primaries, so the state, county, and city Greens held by-mail balloting throughout April and in-person voting on April 30. Harris defeated David Marriott and Emanuel McCray; vote totals have yet to be released. In the Eighth District, Wallace received 45 votes, Elizabeth Croydon six, and Charles “Teddy” Galloway III four.
While the U.S. Senate and other U.S. House primaries were not contested, voters had the option of selecting “None of the Above” or saying no candidate should be run. Margaret Flowers won the U.S. Senate nomination. Other U.S. House candidates are Nnabu Eze (Third District), Kamesha Clark (Fourth District), George Gluck (Sixth District), and Myles Hoenig (Seventh District).
Maryland Green Party U.S. Senate candidate Margaret Flowers will meet voters at the Green Party of the United States national headquarters in Takoma Park, Maryland, on Friday evening from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. to urge party members to vote in the Maryland Green Party’s primary. Maryland Greens can vote by mail through Saturday, April 30, or in person in Baltimore on Sunday, May 1. (Ballots will be available at the Flowers event.)
Though Flowers and most of the Green candidates for U.S. House are unopposed in their primary races, voters will also have the option to select “None of the Above” or to say that the party should run no candidate. There is a competitive primary in the Eighth District between Elizabeth Croydon, Charles Galloway, and Nancy Wallace. There is also a competitive Green primary for Baltimore mayor between Joshua Harris, David Marriott, and Emanuel McCray.
Flowers and Harris appeared on the Real News Network as part of their coverage of the Maryland Democratic and Republican primaries Tuesday evening.
Elizabeth Croydon, who is running for the Green Party U.S. House nomination in Maryland’s Eighth District, took part in the #Reschedule420 Emergency National Mobilization to Deschedule Cannabis demonstration outside the White House last Saturday.
Charles “Teddy” Galloway III and Nancy Wallace are also seeking the Green nomination in the by-mail primary.
