MD - Duncan Simms Ticket Out of the Race
However, on Thursday County Executive Duncan dropped out of the race citing illness and ending his and Simms run for Governor and Lt. Governor.
Duncan who said he recently had been diagnosed with clinical depression said withdrawing from the race was best for him and his family.
The O'Malley Brown ticket, which had been leading in the polls http://blackpolicy.com/black-races.php?s=MD, face nominally opposition in the September primary and can now grid for the tough general election ahead where they will face incumbent Bob Erhlich who has yet to name a runningmate.
Four years Gov. Erhlich shocked many and choose Michael Steele for the post and made Steele the first African American to win statewide in Maryland. Lt. Governor Steele is now a GOP candidate for the United States Senator from Maryland (http://blackpolicy.com/black-races.php?s=MD).
