No Threat To Mikulski In Maryland

Barbara Mikulski (D), first elected in 1986, is seeking a fifth term -- a milestone no woman in the Senate has ever achieved. Mikulski, a liberal former member of the Baltimore City Council, is not especially loved in the state. But she has been an effective fighter for Maryland, and faces no threat from Republican challenger Eric Wargotz, a Queen Anne's County commissioner.
