State Senator Jim Mathias squared off against his Republican challenger Mike McDermott during a two hour forum yesterday, hosted by the Ocean City chapter of the AARP.

McDermott struck out against the Democratic incumbent citing the number of jobs that Maryland has lost during the Great Recession.
