After Recount, Elrich the Democratic Nominee for County Executive

Councilmember Marc Elrich is the Democratic nominee for county executive, after the Montgomery County Board of Elections completed its recount of ballots. 

Health care executive David Blair of Potomac picked up five votes in the recount, and Elrich picked up three for a net gain of two votes for Blair. 

“Now we can all join together and move forward,” Blair said.  

Blair said he would support “Democratic nominees across the entire ticket,” including Elrich. 

The final vote tally was Elrich 37,532 and Blair 37,455, a 77-vote difference. 

Blair said he was about to call Elrich, and he was going to offer his support and encouragement. 

Elrich will now face Republican candidate Robin Ficker in November. Councilmember Nancy Floreen is seeking signatures to be an independent candidate in the race.
