Maryland's highest court moves state primary to July 19


ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland's highest court has moved the state's primary from June 28 to July 19, as courts weigh challenges to the state's new legislative map as well as Maryland's congressional map.

The Court of Appeals on Tuesday also set a new candidate filing deadline for April 15.

The court issued the order in the matter of a legal challenge to the map of political boundaries for the 188 seats in the General Assembly. Separately, a trial began Tuesday over allegations that Maryland’s congressional map has been illegally drawn to benefit Democrats.
