The elder statesman of the Maryland Senate faces one of the year's youngest challengers. A Baltimore lawmaker is battling an upstart who hadn't been born when he first took office.

With the much of the state divided into safe Democratic or Republican districts, the party primary contests on Tuesday will decide election winners in many corners of Maryland. While no wholesale changes are expected in the 188-seat General Assembly, national sentiment against incumbents has inspired an outpouring of candidates working to propel lawmakers out of posts they've held for decades.
