    Wandering Eye: Race's role in Larry Hogan's win, the controversy of Kim Kardashian's butt, and more
    In University of Maryland Baltimore County political-science professor Thomas Schaller's recent op-ed in the Baltimore Sun, "Race had a role in Hogan's win," he compares the gubernatorial-election results in 2010, when Republican Robert Ehrlich lost to incumbent Gov. Martin O'Malley, to 2014, when Republican Larry Hogan defeated Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, an African-American. He concludes that "somewhere between 100,000 and 200,000 presumably white Marylanders" who in 2010 voted for Democrats O'Malley, Attorney General Doug Gansler, Comptroller Peter Franchot, or for Franchot and newly elected Democrat Brian Frosh for attorney general this year, "did not support Mr. Brown's bid to become Maryland's first black governor." Another gauge is to run the numbers in the 13 Maryland counties whose populations are at least 80 percent white, where nearly 22 percent of the state's residents live. In these counties, Brown's average support came to 24.5 percent, ranging from 16 percent in Carroll County to 34.5 percent in Frederick County. The two white state-wide Democratic candidates did much, much better in these counties: Franchot averaged 46 percent and Frosh 34 percent. Brown may have run a poor campaign, and Hogan a good one, but it seems clear that race was indeed a factor in Maryland's many very-white counties. (Van Smith)
