All too many also remembered Mr. Brown's miserable performance in trying to set up the Maryland health exchange website, spending millions of dollars on software that in the end had to be scrapped and even more millions buying the plans of another state, a humiliating event. Other than that fiasco, I can't remember one positive accomplishment he made at lieutenant governor. And incidentally, wasn't it curious that on Election Day, Gov. Martin O'Malley was nowhere in sight? I'm guessing Mr. Brown's loss hasn't helped our governor's presidential hopes.
