    Blue Maryland gets more liberal  [Editorial]
    Maryland has long been a heavily Democratic state, but 2013 may have cemented its status as a truly liberal one. The two things were not always synonymous. Though Democrats have dominated the legislature and governor's mansion for decades, the party's...
