State Senator Jim Mathias has a challenger in next year’s elections.
He’s Ed Tinus who ran for U.S. Senate Maryland in 2012 and 2016.
But he was a Democrat then.
Now he wears the GOP label to challenge the Democratic incumbent in Senate District 38.
Tinus told the Salisbury Daily Times that he doesn’t really fit either party.
But, he added, with the current primary system it didn’t make sense to run as an independent.
And Republicans have a slight edge in the 38th District.
