It's official, Maryland. There were no takers to oppose Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler.

In November, Gansler will run unopposed for re-election.

July 6 was the deadline for candidates to file their bids for office, but July 21 was the last day that central committees for political parties could nominate someone to run in a race in which no one had filed.

Gansler, a first-term Democrat, is Maryland's 44th attorney feneral. He has focused on environmental, public safety and consumer issues.

Gansler has company when it comes to unopposed politicians in Maryland. Nine of the state's 47 senators join him. 

The unopposed Republicans are Sens. George Edwards, of County, and Barry Glassman, of Harford County.

The unopposed Democrats are Sens. Robert Zirkin, of Baltimore County; Catherine Pugh and Lisa Gladden, of Baltimore; Jamie Raskin, of Montgomery County; and Jim Rosapepe, Paul Pinsky and Ulysses Currie, of Prince George's County.
