The presidential election of 2012 and Maryland's gubernatorial election of 2014 have much in common rhetorically in terms of their approaches to issues and spin, the two key components of political persuasion. The 2012 presidential election pitted a likable African-American Democratic incumbent president against a white, older Republican who had been out of politics for years. The 2014 Maryland gubernatorial race features a likable incumbent African-American Democratic lieutenant governor against a white, older Republican who has been out of politics for years.

Candidates for Maryland governor unleashed dueling attack ads Monday, heightening a negative contest that has been marked by name-calling and hostility. Republican Larry Hogan's ad plays off an attack Democrat Anthony G. Brown has already lobbed against him: the opponent would take the state "backwards. " Hogan's 40-second ad highlights the pocketbook issues that he has made the centerpiece of his campaign and charged that the O'Malley-Brown administration was responsible for the economic recession.

'Twas the day after Christmas and all through the (political) house, not a creature was stirring, not even . . . William Donald Schaefer.It was, indeed, a merry Christmas for many declared candidates for elective office in Maryland next year. When they looked under their brightly baubled fir trees, they found exactly what they'd been wishing for. Santa had been listening to their bedtime prayers.In a few cases, though, Santa got nasty. Old St. Nick apparently treats politicians the same as he does little boys and girls: If you've been good, you get what you requested; if you've been bad, watch out.Here's a list of what some of Maryland's politicos found in their stockings yesterday, and also what was missing from the pile of presents:* Helen Delich Bentley, Republican candidate for governor.

When you're a Libertarian candidate in Maryland, garnering more than 1 percent of the vote on Election Day counts as a win. But for Shawn Quinn, candidate for governor, nothing short of toppling both the major-party candidates will feel like victory. "People think I'm nuts," Quinn said last week. "But I want to be the next governor of Maryland. " The Libertarian Party, founded in 1971, has never won more than a full percentage point of Maryland voters in statewide races. Quinn is undeterred.

Voters will head to the polls Tuesday to resolve one of the costliest primary fights in Maryland history and nominate scores more politicians for November's general election. With experts forecasting low turnout, candidates were out in force trying Monday to lure voters - long accustomed to September primaries - to cast a ballot in Maryland's first June primary since the Eisenhower administration. "It's really a turnout question in an election like this," said Barbara A. Hoffman, a former state senator and longtime political observer.

Third in a series of profiles of candidates for governor. In 1991, Ron George opened a jewelry store on Main Street in Annapolis within sight of the State House dome, placing his name in oversized gold lettering on the 19th-century storefront. It turned out to be a convenient location for the conservative Republican state legislator now running for governor. For George, Main Street is not merely an address, it's a persona. Hardly a campaign appearance goes by without a reference to his connection to "Main Street" roots and values.

OCEAN CITY — Gubernatorial candidates of both parties promised city and town officials that they would restore local road repair money cut from the state budget by the O'Malley administration. Appearing at the annual convention of the Maryland Municipal League two weeks before the June 24 primary, Democrat Anthony G. Brown and four Republican candidates pledged full restoration of the transportation spending known as "highway user revenue. " That spending was cut back as much as 95 percent by Gov. Martin O'Malley during the recession as the governor chose to shield other spending priorities from deep cuts.

When the Rev. Darlingston Johnson tried to buy 120 acres in Montgomery County to accommodate his new church a decade ago, he quickly learned that local politicians were less devoted to practicing Christian - style kindness than he was. He needed a few zoning signatures. Officials barely gave him the time of day. The reason, he says: His membership included lots of African immigrants, a group he says has never had a seat at the table of power. "While the number of African immigrants in the U.S. is large, our community lacks the strong influence with political and corporate leaders we deserve," he says.

THERE WAS NO ambivalence in Harford County Executive Eileen M. Rehrmann's letter released yesterday: She is a candidate for governor. Given sufficient financial support and elevated visibility, the 52-year-old Democrat could pose a threat to Democratic Gov. Parris N. Glendening.Yet she starts off a long-shot. No Maryland governor has been defeated in a party primary. While the current governor is unpopular with many Democratic officeholders, the public's response is tougher to gauge. Various polls indicate a continuing high unfavorable rating, but Mr. Glendening is a relentless campaigner.

In their only scheduled debate on Baltimore television, the four Republican candidates for governor depicted Maryland as overtaxed and overspent under a Democratic administration, creating a climate in which businesses are fleeing to neighboring states. In the debate, taped Monday afternoon for broadcast Friday, David R. Craig, Ron George, Larry Hogan and Charles Lollar offered a grim assessment of the state's economic outlook as the second and final term of Gov. Martin O'Malley comes to an end. "Businesses are leaving in droves - to go to Virginia, to Delaware, to West Virginia, to other states," said Hogan, 58, a former Ehrlich administration official, who said the state's "onerous" tax policy is to blame.
