Anne Arundel County could play a pivotal role in the newly aligned 4th Congressional District race, though no candidate from there has officially entered the race.
The last time Maryland had a Republican senator, Ronald Reagan was president and now-U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin was serving his first term in Congress. But that history hasn't deterred ex-Secret Service agent Dan Bongino from entering next year's Senate race.
But, Mr. Ivey also might be an appealing candidate to voters in the newly added portions of the district because of his law enforcement career, Mr. Herrnson said.
If he decides to run, Mr. Benoit could have a third-candidate effect on the race, which usually favors the incumbent, said Paul Herrnson, Center for American Politics and Citizenship director at the University of Maryland.
