The election cycle is in full force all around the country. Many people are taking time to understand their candidates’ platforms. Others, are just happy to wear wool and do what they are told. Sadly, that seems to be the prevailing attitude in Maryland, where special interest politics holds huge sway.

Maryland is a very diverse state and has some very red areas, politically speaking; however, the state leans blue due to the more congested areas of the state such as Prince George’s and Baltimore Counties. Not surprising, these are also the areas that led the way to a state-wide ban on hydraulic fracturing in the State.
