After eight years of receiving crucial support for his mayoral administration, Gov. Martin O'Malley came to Baltimore yesterday to return the favor to Mayor Sheila Dixon. O'Malley joined former Rep. Kweisi Mfume in officially endorsing Dixon, lending her mayoral campaign the biggest names to date with less than a month before the Democratic primary. Standing outside of City Hall in War Memorial Plaza, the trio emerged to the 1980s classic song "Eye of the Tiger," where they were joined by a legion of city and state elected officials.

Some of the largest donors to Andrey Bundley's underdog campaign for mayor are himself, the 4 Aces Bail Bonds company of East Baltimore and Tyrone's Fried Chicken of West Baltimore. The biggest donors to Mayor Martin O'Malley's re-election effort include Ravens owners Art and Patricia Modell, the prestigious law firm of Whiteford, Taylor and Preston and the Phillips Restaurant at the Inner Harbor. Not surprisingly, O'Malley has a bit more money. To be exact, the incumbent has 88 times as much campaign cash in the bank -- $2 million compared to the $22,753 for Bundley, the principal of Walbrook High School making his first run for office.

Despite earlier statements that he would formally announce his candidacy for mayor last night, Carl Stokes delayed his announcement and held a smaller-than-expected meeting of campaign supporters. About 50 friends and volunteers from his 1999 campaign for mayor turned out for a reception last night at the Forum catering hall on Primrose Avenue in West Baltimore. This was fewer than the 75 to 125 that the former city councilman said he was expecting early in the day. But Stokes said he was not disappointed because the meeting was not intended as a large fund-raiser, but instead as a small meeting of his campaign volunteers.

John B. Ascher's campaign for mayor got off to a rocky start yesterday.Mr. Ascher, a follower of political extremist Lyndon LaRouche, arrived to make his official announcement in City Hall Plaza just as a light rain began to fall.Moments later, a City Hall guard strode across the plaza to inquire -- with a scowl -- just what he and his half-dozen supporters were doing.And although Mr. Asher eagerly offered campaign literature to anyone who looked his way as they hurried past, few people bothered to take it.One man who did take his campaign handout read a few lines before crumpling it into a ball.

That room erupted in cheers as he conceded. Less than 10 minutes later, champagne was flowing.
