LINTHICUM- Election night was an emotional roller coaster for Maryland’s republicans. The evening began with great hope for Gov. Mitt Romney and Maryland republican candidates, but ended with tears as the night came to a close. The Republicans say they’re disappointed, but not defeated, and they’re confident that another four years under Democratic rule will make Maryland swing from blue to red in 2014.
