Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler has yet to launch his bid for governor but on Friday announced he hired a veteran strategist to manage his campaign. New campaign manager Carrie Glenn has experience helping Democrats secure victories in competitive races against Republicans, most recently in Montana. She oversaw the re-election of U.S. Senator Jon Tester and Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock's election as governor. Democrats have been awaiting Gansler's next move in the primary race to succeed  Gov. Martin O'Malley, who is term-limited.

Justin Schall, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's campaign manager, has rejected Larry Hogan's criticism of Mr. Brown's ad campaign. Mr. Schall said Mr. Hogan has proved over and over that he doesn't trust women to make their own health care decisions, be it by his support for banning abortions or his advocating a constitutional amendment that would limit women's access to birth control. Of course, when President Barack Obama changed his mind over the years regarding same-sex marriage, Democrats thought it was fine because people have the right to change their views.

President Barack Obama's campaign manager and former political adviser Jim Messina will meet with Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's supporters on Monday to talk about Maryland's gubernatorial race.  Why?  It's not exactly clear. Brown's campaign said Messina will also make a public announcement about the race, though Brown's campaign manager Justin Schall was mum about about what that announcement could be.  Messina oversaw Obama's 2012 re-election campaign, and worked in the White House as a deputy chief of staff during the president's first term.

Justin Schall, Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown's campaign manager, seems to be the only one making any kind of statements to The Sun. Everything I read says "Justin Schall, Brown's campaign manager, says ... " followed by some sort of negative on Republican gubernatorial nominee Larry Hogan. Is he the one who is actually running for the office or is it the lieutenant governor? Mr. Brown can't speak for himself, or is he afraid to actually say some of the misinformation and mistruths shown in his negative TV ads?

Baltimore County Councilman Kenneth N. Oliver's endorsement of Joseph Bartenfelder over Kevin Kamenetz in the race for county executive has cost him his campaign manager and chairman, who quit when a disagreement about the decision came to a head earlier this month. Billy Chase, an Owings Mills lawyer who managed both of Oliver's previous campaigns, said he and Oliver had talked about the endorsement several times, and when Oliver made it clear he had made up his mind, Chase handed over his resignation on Aug. 13. "My position was he needed to stay neutral," said Chase, although he acknowledged that he would not have quit if Oliver had endorsed Kamenetz, who has served alongside Bartenfelder on the council since 1994.

Although former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. has yet to officially enter the race for his old office, Gov. Martin O'Malley is eager to take him on, according to the governor's campaign manager, Tom Russell. Russell, a longtime Democratic campaigner, said the current heated political conditions can't help but entice Ehrlich into a rematch against O'Malley. " Maryland is a Democratic state, but this is one heck of a Republican year," Russell said. "Right now, incumbents are suffering, and Democrats are suffering."

The gubernatorial campaign of Republican Larry Hogan is demanding a criminal investigation of its charges that Democratic rival Anthony G. Brown's campaign illegally coordinated its activities with a legally independent political action committee. The call Tuesday night for an investigation by the State Prosecutor's Office or the Attorney General's Office folows a complaint the Hogan camp made last week to the State Board of Elections on the same topic. The Hogan campaign contends that the Brown campaign ilegally coordinated its activities with those of the lieutenant governor's "One State, One Future" PAC. The Hogan campaign asked that prosecutors look into whether Brown or his running mate, Howard County Executive Ken Ulman, illegally solicited funds on behalf of the PAC. As evidence, the Hogan campaign pointed to the fact that the Brown campaign and the PAC had both reported using the same fund-raising consultants.

I got quite a chuckle reading "Hogan's rolling office raises eyebrows" (Sept. 7) regarding Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan's campaign bus. According to the Hogan campaign spokesman, Adam Dubitsky, the campaign pays Mr. Hogan $683.77 a month as "office rent" to use a newly-purchased bus, which is equal to what Mr. Hogan pays to fiance the bus. Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown's campaign called Mr. Hogan's bus a metaphor for the Republican's wealth....

Republican Larry Hogan filed a formal elections complaint against Anthony G. Brown last week, accusing his Democratic opponent of illegally coordinating with a political action committee in the race for governor. Hogan alleges that Brown's campaign broke state election laws by sharing fundraising consultants with a super PAC Hogan said was created to aid Brown's bid. In the Hogan's complaint, his campaign alleged said that sharing fundraising - and just political - consultants constitutes coordination between the two operations.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan jumped out to a massive - but almost certainly temporary - lead in cash in hand over Democratic rival Anthony G. Brown, the Hogan campaign reported Tuesday night. Hogan's better than 3-1 advantage - $2.4 million to Brown's $760,000 - was based largely on a July 9 lump sum payment of $2.6 million from the state's public financing fund after the June 24 primary. However, Hogan's fund-raising for his general election campaign is essentially frozen, while Brown can continue to raise money through the Nov. 4 election.

Candidates for governor in Maryland's June primary spent a record of almost $25 million - paying roughly $35 for every voter who showed up at the polls. Campaign finance reports filed with the State Board of Elections this week show that the primary's cost exceeded the total spent during the primary and general election four years ago by more than $2 million. As Democrat Anthony G. Brown continues to raise money apace and Republican Larry Hogan has $2.4 million in public financing, they appear on track to shatter the record $33 million spent on the gubernatorial contest in 2006.

If Republican Larry Hogan wants to be Maryland's next governor, he needs to drive home his message of cutting taxes and creating jobs. And he needs to appear pleasant. For his part, Democrat Anthony G. Brown needs to avoid unforced errors that could squander his advantages. And he can't underestimate his opponent. This is among the advice offered by political pundits and campaign veterans, many of whom expect a lively race for governor when the campaign for the Nov. 4 election moves into higher gear in the coming weeks.

Republican Larry Hogan will be the first candidate in two decades to mount a statewide general election bid using taxpayer donations. Hogan's campaign said Wednesday that it will accept public financing, an unusual move that reflects the GOP's uphill political fight against Maryland's better-funded and more powerful Democratic Party. The decision will give Hogan's camp a $2.6 million check from state coffers to pay for his race against Democrat Anthony G. Brown, who has proved himself a formidable fundraiser by collecting more than $12 million for the primary election alone.
