GAITHERSBURG, Md. — The Democratic primary for Montgomery County Executive is too close to call, according to the Associated Press.
Incumbent Marc Elrich declared victory, but challenger David Blair announced that there will be a recount.
Elrich tweeted a victory message with the final votes still being counted.
“I am honored to be the Democratic nominee for County Executive,” he wrote late Saturday night. “I want to thank the voters. I love this county and care about our residents so very deeply. This primary has been a long journey (and certainly exciting).
