Who will build momentum in the Prince George’s County Executive race?

Extracted from "Ten Random Questions" by Adam Pagnucco at Maryland Politics Watch
9. Who will build momentum in the Prince George's County Executive race?
Right now, we see three credible candidates in the hunt: former Delegate Rushern Baker (D-22B), who nearly defeated term-limited incumbent Jack Johnson in 2006, Senator C. Anthony Muse (D-26) and State's Attorney Glenn Ivey. A few months ago, we picked Ivey as the early leader, partially because Baker's and Muse's finances were in terrible shape. But there is a long time to go in this race. Montgomery County residents have a lot at stake here because Prince George's dysfunction often spills over the border, especially with regards to WSSC. Most of our spies with an opinion favor Ivey, with one calling the dropoff between him and the other Prince George's politicians "huge." 
The other nine questions all relate to Montgomery County.
