How Harford County Lawmakers Voted on Death Penalty Repeal
Spoiler alert: Even the sole Democratic representative voted against it. How do you feel about death penalty repeal in the state of Maryland?
Legislators in the House of Delegates—in a 82-56 vote—successfully passed the repeal of the death penalty, making Maryland the 18th state to do so.
Seven of eight Harford County Delegates, however, cast votes against the repeal Friday. That list also includes party-line breaker, Democrat Mary-Dulaney James, who represents Havre de Grace and Aberdeen. Del. Pat McDonough was absent. (See chart)
