New District 30

District 30 was redrawn considerably in 2014, giving up Arnold and Cape St. Claire in exchange for Edgewater and south county. While Democratic Senator John Astle slightly increased his vote share from 2010 to 2014, the surprising performance by his underfunded Republican opponent, Don Quinn, has put this seat at the top of the GOP’s target list in 2018. Former delegate and gubernatorial candidate Ron George has declared his intention to run for this seat, but Delegate Herb McMillan may also run. Astle, for his part, has expressed his intention to run for a seventh term.
