The biggest news came out of Maryland, where Republican Larry Hogan easily won the GOP Senate nomination, but on the Democrat side, Prince George's County Executive Angela Alsobrooks scored a stunning upset over Rep.

Trone spent over $60 million of his own money on his campaign, making it one of the most expensive Senate campaigns in history.

Maybe Democrat voters just thought he couldn’t really be a Democrat if he believed in wasting his own money.
