    An all-you-can-eat seafood festival that often draws Maryland's leading political candidates wrapped up with a little less star power than usual.

    The 38th Annual J. Millard Tawes Crab and Clam Bake was held Wednesday afternoon in Crisfield. This year was unusual because Maryland's primary was held before the event in June, rather than in September as in past elections.

    Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, who is running for governor, was scheduled to attend, but he did not make the trip. His campaign said Brown and running mate Ken Ulman attended a funeral in Baltimore County.

    His Republican opponent, Larry Hogan, attended the event after announcing plans to eliminate income taxes on the pensions of veterans in Ocean City.
