The rumors have been out there for a while that Commissioners President Blaine Young would enter the governor’s race. Now he’s exploring the option. Frankly, it’s hard to imagine how Maryland’s electoral math could turn his way. Not even former Gov. Bob Ehrlich could pull off a second term, and he was, for all intents and purposes, a moderate. We’ll be interested to see if this goes beyond the exploratory stage. To be honest, we doubt it. Young, despite having once been a Democrat then flipping parties after he decided not to run again for Frederick city alderman, is about as conservative a conservative as Frederick County has to offer.
