Primary election is over. Congrats to all who chose to run and a huge thanks to the few who voted. Now, it's time to figure out how much candidates spent locally (in their own districts and even in Maryland). Oh yes, it sounds good when candidates say that they support local small businesses, but did they use them in this election?

Chances are no. Campaign money flew out of this state for consultants, printers and even robocalls. Why?
