Douglas Ordway of Charlotte, N.C., had the winning ticket last night in the Howard County Democratic Party's handgun trigger-lock raffle. Ordway's ticket was plucked from among 1,000 $1 tickets that were sold as part of a partisan effort to draw a contrast to Carroll County Republicans, who raffled a 9 mm semiautomatic handgun in February. The raffle for the safety device came after three hours of schmoozing and speeches at the Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner, an annual fund-raising event for the Democratic Party.
