The Del. Barbara Robinson, a Democrat, was nominated for the District 40 seat that became vacant when Catherine Pugh stepped down after winning Baltimore’s mayoral election.
Meanwhile, Montgomery County Democratic Central Committee voted Wednesday night for Del. Will Smith, a Democrat, to replace former Sen. Jamie Raskin, who won Maryland’s 8th Congressional District seat.
Gov. Larry Hogan will make the nominations official. He is required to appoint someone to the seats from the party that held them.
