  • Baltimore County Executive and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Kevin Kamenetz has died following a cardiac arrest according to multiple reports

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz - a Democratic candidate for the 2018 gubernatorial contest - died early this morning at University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center following a cardiac arrest, the county said Thursday in a statement. He was 60 years old and participated in a candidates' forum earlier in the evening.

Baltimore County officials said Kamenetz woke up in his Owings Mills home at 2 a.m. and felt sick. Prior to serving as the County Executive, he was elected to the Baltimore County council where he served for 16 years. A new county executive will be elected in November, taking office in December.

Hogan has also ordered the Maryland flag to be flown at half staff from today until sunset on the day of interment.

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh said Kamenetz was an "ardent supporter" of Baltimore and someone she "admired". The County Council will now be required to vote on a replacement to serve the remaining seven months of Kamenetz's term. Other gubernatorial candidates released similar statements, praising Kamenetz and saying they were shocked by his sudden death.


'I'm incredibly saddened to learn of the passing of Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, ' Jealous wrote.

"His absence will shake up the race because he was an important political figure in the state", pollster Mileah Kromer told The Baltimore Sun.

He is survived by his wife Jill and the couple's two teenaged sons, Karson and Dylan. "Our prayers go out to his family and many loved ones this morning".

US Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Maryland, called Kamenetz "an energetic public servant who cared about making a difference for those he served".
