Brown Early voting begins Oct. 23 and what should be a slam-dunk election for the Lieutenant Governor (winner of City Paper's "Best Plain Brown Wrapper") continues to look like a nail-biter, thanks largely to Brown's bloodless, safe campaign and Hogan's smart focus on taxes and Brown's failed health-care-exchange rollout. Loathsome national Republicans like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge are now coming in to seal the deal for Hogan, but it just might backfire and show Maryland voters the kind of douchebag they could end up with.
