Comparing the Democratic candidates

Five candidates are seeking the Democratic nomination for county executive in Prince George's County in the Sept. 14 primary. Because of the county's overwhelming Democratic registration, winning the primary virtually ensures victory in November. The pivotal race to succeed Jack B. Johnson, barred by term limits from running for a third term, comes at a time of profound challenges as Prince George's seeks more jobs, better schools and a lower crime rate.
