Owens Enter Comptroller Race

The crowded field of Democrats in the Third Congressional District race breathed a sigh of relief yesterday. After nearly a year of dropping hints that she would run, including buying a home in the district currently represented by Ben Cardin, Anne Arundel County Executive Janet Owens announced that she will not vye for the seat.

Instead, The Annapolis Capital reported, Owens is a candidate for state Comptroller.

The politics talk of the day wasn't so much about Owens' campaign as it was who she's trying to defeat. The Comptroller position is currently filled by Maryland political giant William Donald Schaefer.

Schaefer, a Democrat, also faces a challenge from Peter Franchot, a liberal Democrat who represents parts of Montgomery County in the House. Now Owens, a Democrat who is often described as more conversation than the Republicans who dominate her County's Council, is coming at Schaefer from the right.

Owens and Franchot aren't the type to get into a statewide race willy nilly. They are running because they think they can win. And they may be onto something. ...

Janet "The Queen of Sprawl" Owens will be one of the worst comptrollers in the history of Maryland if she is elected. Not that I like Franchot all that much either, but Owens has been a thorn in our side here in AA County the last 8 years. I would hate to see her carry her tradition of bulldozing to the state level however.
