8.Unless there's a hot race at the top of the ticket, we don't get big voter turnouts in Baltimore.

The last time we had a hot Democratic primary was 1999, when O'Malley defeated Lawrence Bell and Carl Stokes. At least 49 percent of city voters turned out. You have to go back to 1983 to find another hot primary; the turnout was 63 percent that year, with William Donald Schaefer winning in a landslide over attorney Billy Murphy.
