    STATE TIDBITS

    State Capital: Annapolis
    State Nicknames: Free State, Old Line State

    Maryland's northern border is the famous Mason-Dixon line, traditionally the demarcation between North and South. During the mid-19th century, Maryland was a major immigration center, and its ethnic diversity (Maryland has a higher percentage of black residents -- 25 percent -- than any state outside the South) still sets it apart from many Southern regions. The state also boasts demographic variety, from the Democratic leanings of urban Baltimore to the conservative bend of the rustic, Southern-styled Eastern Shore and the hills of the western panhandle. Its eight House seats are divided equally between the parties, and while its political differences are great, when taken as a whole Maryland is moderate with a slight Democratic edge, like the nation itself. Maryland gave Clinton his third-highest percentage in 1992 and his fifth-best (tied with Illinois) in 1996. Sen. Barbara Mikulski is one of four women incumbent senators up for re-election in 1998. She is the only one elected prior to the 1992 "year of the woman."
