King launches bid for Anne Arundel Senate seat
Del. James J. King (R-Anne Arundel) confirmed Monday night that he will launch a primary challenge to Sen. Edward R. Reilly (R-Anne Arundel), a former county council member who was appointed to the General Assembly last year.
The match-up for Senate between King, 35, and Reilly, 60, is one of an unusual number of generational primary challenges that are continuing to shape up for Maryland legislative seats. The Post detailed several others in a piece that ran in February.
In a news release distributed in the closing hours of the legislative session, King, a first-term delegate, cast himself as the more conservative choice on taxes and spending.
"As a member of the County Council, Ed Reilly's voting record mirrored that of his Democratic colleagues," King said in the release.
King, a small-business owner from Gambrills, has chosen April 15 as his official announcement day.
