Democratic 2nd District City Council candidate Beatrice "Bea" Gaddy ran her campaign headquarters out of a vacant rowhouse owned by a landlord criticized by a neighborhood organization for owning scores of rundown properties.In an agreement with Stanley Rochkind, Gaddy used the house in the 1800 block of North Washington St. for free in exchange for fixing it up. But after inquiries by The Sun, Gaddy, 66, returned the house to Rochkind this week."I've moved almost everything out because I know how people could perceive it," Gaddy said.

Republican Larry Hogan opened his gubernatorial campaign headquarters in Annapolis Friday night by reminiscing with his former boss, former Gov. Robert  L. Ehrlich. Ehrlich said he and Hogan met decades ago campaigning for Hogan's father, former Congressman Lawrence J. Hogan, “and then we went to the Republican convention to meet girls.”  He said he called Hogan out of retirement to work for him in 2002 because Hogan could work well with Democrats. Ehrlich joked that Friday night's event “was a like a reunion of the cabinet,” since Hogan was his appointments secretary and Hogan's running mate, Boyd Rutherford, was a secretary of general services.

A Baltimore Circuit Court jury deliberated just 40 minutes yesterday before finding state Del. Tony E. Fulton not guilty of stealing money during his 1990 re-election campaign.Mr. Fulton, 40, was acquitted of two counts of felony theft and misdemeanor misconduct."It was obvious that the charges were bogus, and given the fact that the jury only stayed out a half-hour or so, it seems they were convinced, too," said an elated Mr. Fulton after the verdicts."This shows that the system works. My family and I still have a lot of healing to do, but I'm happy in knowing that today I got justice," he said.

WASHINGTON -- After about 114 hours of near-nonstop campaigning, Bob Dole finally got a full night's sleep Tuesday night in his own bed.He woke up yesterday with, as he had foreseen, nothing to do. For the first time in nearly half a century, he held no political office, having resigned from the Senate to run for president and then watched as his presidential aspirations were crushed in Bill Clinton's landslide victory Tuesday.Dole spent a few quiet hours at his campaign headquarters here yesterday afternoon, wrapping up loose ends, posing for pictures with his aides and his Secret Service detail and perhaps giving a thought to the future.

WASHINGTON -- Vice President Al Gore explains his decision to move his presidential campaign headquarters to Nashville, Tenn., by saying he wants to take it "directly to the grass roots and directly to the American people."Translation: I've got to do something to take the focus off me as a Washington political animal tethered to Monica Lewinsky's old boyfriend.The idea that moving a presidential campaign out of Washington will bring a candidate closer to the American people is laughable, considering how presidential campaigns are conducted these days.

Some of the candidates for governor are taking offense at Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's use of a "tracker" to videotape what one of his rivals, Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler, says on the campaign trail. Where have they been? This tactic, while a bit irritating and obnoxious, is standard procedure in high-profile campaigns and has been for years. Both Gov. Martin O'Malley and former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. employed trackers during the last two gubernatorial campaigns, and nobody said a peep about it. Granted, the Brown campaign's sanctimonious defense of the practice is particularly rich.

The balding guy with a shy way about him would always sit in the back of the church, usually by himself, and silently slip out after Communion and before the final hymn. Congregants at Old St. Paul's in downtown Baltimore recalled one-time vestryman William Donald Schaefer on a glorious Easter Sunday, just three days before the former mayor and governor will return to his old church one last time. Services for Schaefer, who died at 89 a week ago, will be held at the historic church Wednesday after he lies in state at the State House and in City Hall Monday and Tuesday.

After waiting for election returns throughout the night, Baltimore County Councilman Kevin Kamenetz will declare victory this morning in his race for the Democratic nomination for county executive against fellow council member Joseph Bartenfelder. Bartenfelder, 53, a Fullerton farmer and former member of the Maryland House of Delegates, conceded the race to Kamenetz around 9 a.m., saying he won the precincts he needed to win, but the low turnout cut too far into his total vote. "We tried to get our message out, we kept our campaign focused and positive," he said.

With his party's nomination finally in hand, Sen. Barack Obama urged Democratic leaders in Maryland and elsewhere to realize that an extraordinary organizational effort would be needed for him to win in November. He was young and inexperienced, and he was black. He had to be more than an inspirational speaker. We have to change the game, he said. His evolving plan required doubling and redoubling what is often called the ground game: voter registration and turnout. He would need a 21st Century version of what campaigns have always done.

DES MOINES, Iowa - Of all the "name" Democratic presidential candidates operating campaign headquarters here for the kickoff 2004 caucuses, the one who seems to have made the least effort in Iowa so far is Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman of Connecticut. So it's not surprising that he is running only fifth in the latest Zogby International poll of Iowa Democrats, with a mere 4 percent support. Although Mr. Lieberman probably has the highest name recognition of all the candidates after being the party's vice presidential nominee in 2000, he has not been as visible in the state as the competitors he trails in the poll.
