Area Dems. Win State House Primaries

Three area races for the state's House of Delegates moved forward today with Democratic candidates emerging from their primary campaigns. (Read tonight's story by Michael Laris for more on these races.)

Perhaps the highest-profile victory was in District 52, where Luke E. Torian won out over Michael A. Hodge.

The 52nd District seat is one the Democrats hope to take from outgoing Republican Rep. Jeffrey M. Frederick, the former state GOP chief. Torian will face Republican Rafael Lopez.

In District 35, Mark L. Keam defeated John F. Carroll, Esam S. Omeish and Roy J. Baldwin handily.

Keam will face Republican Jim Hyland for the right to succeed Stephen C. Shannon, who is running for Attorney General.

And in District 47, Patrick A. Hope defeated Alan E. Howze, Adam J. Parkhomenko, Miles F. Grant and Andres Tobar.

Hope is bidding to replace retiring Democratic Del. Albert C. Eisenberg.

In District 38, the race between incumbent Robert D. Hull and over L. Kaye Kory was too close to call as of this posting.

Area Republican House candidates had no primaries today. A full list of results from Democratic and Republican House of Delegate primaries is available from the state's elections board.
