A lane to victory for only woman running for Montgomery County executive

By Glynis Kazanjian, MarylandReporter.com

Rose Krasnow may prefer to be judged by voters for her credentials rather than her gender, but the fact remains she is the only female candidate in a crowded race of five white men running for county executive during the #MeToo movement.  

A former county executive candidate and a well-known Maryland pollster see this as an advantage. The consensus is also that the June 26 Democratic primary election for county executive has no clear front runner and remains wide open.

“Rose Krasnow has a lane,” said former county executive candidate and two-term County Councilman Steve Silverman. “She is the only woman in this race. She is qualified and a woman, that in of itself distinguishes her.”
