September 13, 2006|by TAMELA BAKER

Sen. Alex X. Mooney appeared to be fending off both his primary challengers Tuesday.

At presstime, Mooney had tallied 2,966 votes to Hugh M. Warner's 777 votes and Tim Brooks' 669 votes in the District 3 Republican primary.

Mooney, an outspoken conservative Republican, was first elected to the state Senate in 1998. He serves on the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee. A graduate of Dartmouth College, he is executive director of the National Journalism Center, a division of the conservative Young America's Foundation. He is running for his third four-year term in the Senate.

Mortgage banker Brooks, 33, of Frederick, Md., served in the Marines and is a member of the Frederick County Republican Central Committee. He ran unsuccessfully for the House of Delegates from subdistrict 3A in 2002.

Mooney will face Democrat Candy O. Greenway, 53, of Frederick, in the general election on Nov. 7.

House and Senate seats in the Maryland General Assembly pay $43,500 per year.
