Description This high-profile primary matchup between Shriver, a charismatic, progressive fighter in the House of Delegates (also the nephew of the Kennedys), a prominent, effective State Senator in Van Hollen, an experienced D.C. staffer in Shapiro, and an unknown with spunk. What a race! Whoever wins faces Connie Morella in one of the top races in the country.
