I know being a Republican ideologue in a blue state like Maryland takes some fortitude. But upon reading some of Brian Murphy's few specific proposals as to why he should have been the Republican gubernatorial nominee instead of Bob Ehrlich, I have to question why he would want to lead a government in the U.S.A. ( "The Maryland GOP can win," Nov. 29.) His most specific proposals require a country where firearms are widespread, where abortion is illegal and where immigration is not a problem.

Brian Murphy's analysis of Warren Buffet's position on paying higher taxes misses the larger point Mr. Buffet was making ("Raising taxes on the rich won't cause them to flee," Aug. 29). The practical and reasonable response to our country's deficit situation is a combination of reduced spending and increased taxes. Only through both can we reduce the deficit significantly and ensure a stable economy that allows us to make the kind of investments we need in order to create jobs.

I've just recently started reading your paper on a regular basis and have come to the conclusion that you are just as biased as so much of the other news media. That's nothing new, and we smart people out here read a lot of different sources so we can be well informed. The race for Maryland governor has been covered extensively by The Sun but certainly not thoroughly or honestly. It's obvious by your total lack of coverage on the Brian Murphy campaign for governor that you understand he is the better Republican candidate over former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., otherwise you would jump at the opportunity to help split the Republican vote.

Capital News Service reporter Stacy Jones reports from Crofton: Republican gubernatorial challenger Brian Murphy says he'll give former Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. his endorsement -- but only if he's willing to accept it. "He's made it pretty clear that he doesn't want much to do with me," Murphy said after conceding the GOP primary to the former governor. "Of course I thought I was the better candidate, but somebody's got to beat [Democrat Martin] O'Malley. " The Sarah Palin-endorsed tea party favorite conceded the primary late Tuesday after nearly three hours of waiting anxiously for the votes to be tallied.

The stink of seafood wasn't the only thing hanging over the J. Millard Tawes Crab and Clam Bake this year. The recession loomed, too, personified by one Earl De Vincentz . Retired from the Baltimore City Fire Department, now a corrections officer at Eastern Correctional Institution, De Vincentz planted himself at the front gates of the annual Crisfield political fest so he could have a word with the men who would be governor. The 65-year-old got the ear of Martin O'Malley as the Democratic governor and his electric-green entourage strolled in. The guards got a 2 percent pay cut last year, no raise this year and expect to have to take three to five unpaid days off next year, De Vincentz complained to O'Malley.

In a bid to pump up Maryland Republicans of all stripes, former GOP Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. hosted a rally Sunday that featured moderates such as Rudolph W. Giuliani along with Ehrlich's conservative primary foe, Brian Murphy. The theme: Don't be distracted by recent political polls and go vote. The event was held at a Montgomery County farm and capped off a frantic weekend of Ehrlich campaign events focused on persuading Republicans to take advantage of the state's new early voting rules and cast their ballots for change in the governor's mansion.

Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley and Republican former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. turned aside primary opponents on Tuesday to set up a rematch of their 2006 contest. But this time, it's O'Malley who is the incumbent, fending off Ehrlich, now the challenger. "Both of us have records. Both of us have made choices," O'Malley said Tuesday night. With the primary now out of the way, he said, "public attention becomes much more focused on the contest for governor. " Walking into his victory party, Ehrlich expressed confidence.

Meeting at a swim and tennis club in this tony Washington suburb, the Montgomery County Tea Party activists demanded answers from Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s pick for lieutenant governor. What will the Republican former governor do to hunt down illegal immigrants if he wins in November? Which government programs will he cut to pay for promised tax cuts? What business regulations will he lift? And the most heated query: Why, the small crew pressed lieutenant gubernatorial hopeful Mary Kane during their meeting last week, won't Ehrlich debate his conservative GOP primary challenger?

Maryland primary voters hit the polls Friday for the state's first-ever experience with early voting — a dry run, candidates and election officials say, for the weeklong voting period before the general election in November. The new system has cast office-seekers in the role of de facto educators, explaining the process to voters. Many also include early voting information in their campaign literature and have begun mentioning it in automated phone calls to voters. Many, including the governor and his chief competitor, hope to lead by example by casting their own votes early.

WASHINGTON – Barbara Hovermill boarded one of 12 buses from Hagerstown, determined to be part of the crowd of tens of thousands that rallied Saturday at the Lincoln Memorial at an event organized by conservative commentator Glenn Beck on the 47th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. "We need to have government hear us," said Hovermill, a 68-year-old retired retail worker from Williamsport whose shirt was adorned with buttons and stickers for her favored candidates in Maryland — including gubernatorial candidate Brian Murphy and U.S. Senate candidate Jim Rutledge, both Republicans.
