The Fix Podcast: Crabs, Clams & Candidates
The Fix's Chris Cillizza traveled to the town of Crisfield on Maryland's Eastern Shore July 19 to attend the J. Millard Tawes Crab and Clam Bake, an annual event that mixes food, entertainment, and politics.
This year, Maryland is hosting two nationally important and fairly competitive statewide races -- the contest to fill the seat of Democratic Sen. Paul Sarbanes, who is retiring from Congress, and the gubernatorial battle between incumbent Gov. Bob Ehrlich (R) and challenger Martin O'Malley (D), the mayor of Baltimore.
The candidates and/or their surrogates descended upon tiny Crisfield to mingle with the masses. Chris took his video camera to capture some of the action and then sat down in the washingtonpost.com studios to share his thoughts on Maryland politics and the value of this kind of event to vote-seeking politicians.
