Jim Hyatt drops out of House District 12 race


Reliable sources tell me that Jim Hyatt has dropped out of the race for the House of Delegates in the newly-consolidated District 12. Jay Mason had been serving as Hyatt’s campaign manager while Kathy Malone was his treasurer. His campaign Facebook page has been deleted.

District 12 is in Baltimore and Howard counties.

Here’s what Maryland Reporter previously said about District 12:

District 12: Baltimore County and Howard (Kasemeyer filed; DeBoyMaloneBobo all three retiring)

Catonsville resident Rebecca Dongarra has announced for delegate.

Sen. Ed Kasemeyer, a Democrat, filed for reelection in July.

With three open seats, this will be one of the most competitive districts in 2014.

Democrats filed: Brian BaileyTerri HillEric EbersoleClarence Lam 

Democrat Mike Gisriel has not filed or announced, but has a campaign Facebook pageJim Hyatt has a Facebook page, and will announce soon. At least two more candidates are expected to announce this month.
