    Wandering Eye: Heather Mizeur slams the campaign cycle, an East Baltimore torture house, and the football mind of F. Scott Fitzgerald
    The governor's race has been pretty disappointing to follow, with "false statements and distortions" coming from both Lieut. Gov. Anthony G. Brown and Republican candidate Larry Hogan. And we're not the only ones who feel frustrated: Today, The Sun published an op-ed from state Del. Heather Mizeur, a progressive who focused on forward-thinking ideas and policies in her failed bid for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination. Her op-ed provides some harsh criticism of Brown and his campaign, with her writing, "This campaign cycle has been an epic disaster." She says that she met with Brown after the primary and discussed some of her policy ideas that he could embrace in his campaign, but "Weeks after delivering [a policy] memo [to Brown's campaign], I received word that the campaign 'was taking a different approach.' I was told they had no interest in promoting new policies but were instead locked on a strategy to just draw contrasts with their opponent. That is campaign doublespeak for settling to run negative attack ads rather than to promote a positive vision." But despite her frustration, she urges progressive voters to vote for Brown, rather than write in her name as a form of protest. "There is too much at stake," she writes. "Our time will come at some future election." (Anna Walsh)
