Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown dwarfed the fundraising efforts of his rivals and raised substantially more cash than any other candidate running for governor, according to finance reports filed Friday. Brown's campaign reported that it had raised $813,000 in less than three weeks, more than three times what his closest competitor took in. "Wow," Donald Norris, chair of the public policy department at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, said of Brown's haul. "That is stunning.

Among the participants in this year's Baltimore Pride Parade will be Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, gubernatorial candidate Heather Mizeur and Ken Ulman , who is gubernatorial candidate Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's running mate. The politicians say they have embraced the local LGBT community, with Rawlings-Blake performing the first gay marriage in Baltimore City in 2013 and conducting the first mass gay wedding in Druid Hill Park later that year. Mizeur would be the first female and openly gay governor in Maryland if elected.

We need fresh voices with bipartisan ideas in Annapolis. After attending a Howard County candidates forum in Savage on May 21, I heard two such voices running for a District 13 seat in the House of Delegates - one from each party. Democrat Najab Siddiqui had the soft-spoken insight of a local business owner, job creator and professional engineer. His desire for excellence in both the county and the state was well evident. He provides a sound choice for those party voters who want change in their district representation.

As early voting got underway Thursday in the primary race for governor, the four Republicans competing for the GOP nomination jockeyed to present themselves as the most qualified to take on a Democrat in November. The candidates taped a final televised forum in a Washington studio and, as they have in the past, largely agreed that tax cuts are in order after eight years under Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley. But the normally genial discussion among the Republicans was punctuated by each candidate trying to reinforce his credentials as the conservative most likely to succeed in a state where Democrats hold a 2-1 registration advantage.

Editorial from the Aegis | June 12, 2014
It's been more than a decade since all the voters of the county could vote for all the members of the county council. A key argument in favor of switching from countywide to in-district selection of county council members was that the smaller districts would allow for more grassroots campaigns. Rather than have to get a message out to a county of 250,000 — the theory went — candidates in a particular district would only have to reach about 41,500 people. Actually, the number of people needing to be contacted is even smaller than that as each district has roughly 27,500 registered voters.

District 12 candidate for the Maryland House of Delegates Brian S. Bailey indicated in a letter to The Sun that he takes full responsibility for an error in the authority line on the Web site his campaign created ( "Bailey: 'I take full responsibility' for election law violation," June 8). I never saw the website but was pleased to hear that this type of illegal action is being taken seriously by the prosecutor. We do not need candidates who engage in this type of behavior. Mr. Bailey also suggested that by accepting responsibility for an illegal act he has shown the characteristics of a sound leader.

Before recording their votes in the upcoming Maryland primary elections, readers should study the records of the candidates for attorney general very carefully. I believe such scrutiny will lead to the inevitable conclusion that Sen. Brian Frosh is by far the best candidate for this important position ( "Frosh for attorney general," June 8). By virtue of his almost 30 years of experience as one of the most respected, effective members of the legislature with a long list of accomplishments, Senator Frosh can be trusted to continue Maryland's tradition of outstanding attorneys general.

In a recent story on the race for three delegate seats in an area that extends from West Columbia to southwest Baltimore County, reporter Luke Broadwater provides good basic information on the 10 Democratic candidates ( "A wide-open race for redrawn district in Baltimore, Howard counties June 7). But more needs to be said about how different Michael Gisriel is from most of the others. To be sure, it was pointed out that he was a one-term delegate years ago, that he was disbarred in 2009, had only recently moved into the district and is wealthy enough to have lent his campaign $85,000.

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.
