Valerie Ervin (D), who as his choice for Lt. Governor is replacing the late Kevin Kamenetz in the Maryland gubernatorial primary, lost a court decision late last week. She continues to oppose a State Board of Elections ruling that would require individuals to still vote for Mr. Kamenetz, who died on May 10th, in order for any tallies to count for her. Ms. Ervin, naturally, wants the ballots re-printed to include her name. Expecting to lose in the district court, the Ervin Campaign says the decision allows them to quickly appeal to a higher court where the candidate and her political leadership believe their chances of overturning the administrative ruling are better. The court decisions will have to be expedited because early voting begins on June 14th for the June 26th primary election.
