Longtime Reisterstown resident Jim Smith thought hard about running for governor but never jumped in the shark tank. Dennis Rasmussen lost a reelection bid and eventually ran a forlorn race for the U.S. Senate. Don Hutchinson ultimately ran for the Senate, too, and lost. Ted Venetoulis ran for governor in 1966 after one term as county executive. He lost to Harry Hughes. Dale Anderson expressed a wish to be governor but instead he went to prison for extortion, tax evasion and conspiracy.
