CRISFIELD, Md. (AP/WBOC)- The 37th annual J. Millard Tawes Crab and Clam Bake is set for a steamy afternoon at Somers Cove Marina in Crisfield.

The outdoor all-you-can-eat affair is scheduled for Wednesday. It has become a major meet and greet for Maryland officials over the years.

This year, the inevitably hot event is happening as some Maryland politicians are getting an extra early start on campaigning for 2014.

For example, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for governor, chose his running mate last month a year before the primary. Republican David Craig chose his running mate on Tuesday.

The event is named after Maryland's 54th governor, who was from the small Eastern Shore town of Crisfield. Tawes was governor from 1959 until 1967.
