Larry Hogan, chairman of the conservative activist group Change Maryland, will officially announce on January 21 he is a Republican candidate for governor. The former appointments secretary to Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. sent an e-mail to supporters Sunday saying he would make the announcement at Mike's Restaurant & Crab House in Riva. Hogan said in November that he planned to seek the nomination. He will join a field that includes Harford County Executive David R. Craig, Del. Ron George of Anne Arundel County and Charles County business executive Charles Lollar.

Anthony G. Brown claimed victories in 20 of Maryland's 24 jurisdictions in the Democratic primary, but rivals Douglas F. Gansler and Heather R. Mizeur can each point to some small consolations. Gansler outpaced Brown in Carroll, Cecil and Queen Anne's counties. Mizeur, who lost badly in her Montgomery County home, scored her sole victory in Kent County, where she and her wife own a farm they use as a second home. Brown claimed 51 percent of the statewide vote, compared with 24 percent for Gansler and 22 percent for Mizeur.

The campaign web site of Charles Lollar, one of three announced Republican candidates for governor in 2014, is back on line after an absence of almost a week. Republican blogger Jeff Quinton, who has been tracking the ups and down of the Lollar campaign, said the web site reappeared about 6:15 p.m. Thursday. The absence of a web site was one of several problems Quinton had pointed to in declaring the Lollar campaign an organizational "train wreck. " Lollar has disputed that assessment.

Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler's campaign for governor will officially begin on Sept. 24. Gansler's campaign has planned a six-day, 17-stop series of announcements beginning in Rockville, according to an email that will be sent to supporters Thursday evening.  Gansler, a Democrat, has already spent much of the summer involved in the governor's race. He built his pitch to voters with policy forums on domestic violence, manufacturing, energy projects and jails. He also spent a week in the headlines after his secretly recorded comments to campaign volunteers about his chief rival were leaked to a newspaper.

Polls may show him trailing, but Harford County Executive David R. Craig today declared himself the true front-runner in the race for the Republican nomination for governor. “In reality, I am the front-runner,” Craig told the Baltimore Sun editorial board. A poll conducted for the Baltimore Sun showed businessman and activist Larry Hogan has built on his lead since February and now is favored by 27 percent of likely GOP voters. His two closest competitors, Craig and Charles County business executive Charles Lollar, stand at 12 percent each.

Baltimore-area Republican voters, who have endured months of television ads for Democratic candidates for governor on local broadcast stations, will get to hear a pitch from one of their own when Larry Hogan goes on the air in the low-budget GOP primary. Hogan's campaign announced Thursday that it has bought time on Baltimore stations for an ad it has already been running on cable -- a less expensive medium -- in which Hogan criticizes Gov. Martin O'Malley's economic policies. Hogan is the first of the four GOP contenders who has been able to afford broadcast TV time in the Baltimore media market.

In the latest sign of turmoil affecting Charles County business executive Charles Lollar's Republican campaign for governor, a former campaign staffer has written an open letter imploring him to "do what it takes to get your campaign back on track. " Mike Phillips, writing to a candidate he calls someone "that I count as a friend and who used to count me as one," told Lollar in his letter that he is "sadly mistaken" if he thinks the campaign is heading in the right direction. Phillips, who said he had resigned from the campaign, said he had witnessed "abusibe" conduct by the campaign's leadership, "I saw behavior from your staff leadership that were mistreating other staff members, verbally abusive, lied regarding a number of campaign activities, shunned people not on the campaign who sought to volunteer, shunned those who were officially invited by you personally to join the team and effectively 'fired”'without provocation," said Phillips, whose letter was first published by Jeff's Qunton's Quinton Report blog on Maryland Republican politics.

Maryland's Democratic and Republican contenders for governor are sparing no effort to pull every last supporter to the polls Tuesday in a primary for which many voters aren't ready. Likely voters can expect a barrage of phone calls and a flood of election-eve mail on behalf of the three Democrats and four Republicans seeking Maryland's top office. Television ads will try to sway the undecided up to the bitter end — at least for campaigns that can afford that luxury — but the main focus will be on the ground game.

For Republican candidates for governor, there's simply not enough Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. to go around. He's like the father in a large family whose kids compete for his attention but can't manage to get Dad all to themselves. Ehrlich, who in 2002 became Maryland's first Republican governor in three decades and is now promoting a book, has long been telling the candidates he won't choose a favorite in Tuesday's primary. That hasn't stopped them from invoking his name, likening themselves to him, seeking his fundraising assistance and, in at least one case, using his beaming face in a campaign commercial.

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.

Fourth in a series of profiles of candidates for governor. Charles Lollar was at it again last week, the only Republican on stage with the three Democrats running for governor, wooing a crowd largely unable to cast a vote in the fast-approaching GOP primary. His Republican rivals skipped the event at a Silver Spring church, but as he has done throughout the campaign, Lollar focused on charming voters in a Democratic stronghold. The ordained preacher and former tea party activist spreads a spirited message about rising above partisanship.

Republican primary voters are blessed with the deepest field of candidates they've had for governor in a generation - four men who each bring compelling stories to their quests to replace Gov. Martin O'Malley. David Craig is the teacher turned legislator, mayor and county executive. Ron George is a one-time soap opera actor who is now a state delegate and (literally) a Main Street business owner. Larry Hogan is a former state cabinet secretary and son of the first Republican congressman to announce that he would vote to impeach Richard Nixon.

Larry Hogan became the first Republican candidate for governor to run ads on television Thursday as his campaign released a 30-second spot that is running on cable channels in the Baltimore market. The Hogan ad, which comes 2 1/2 months before the June 24 primary, continues Hogan's theme of his determination to "Change Maryland" -- the name of the conservative advocacy group he founded three years ago.  Hogan, a former Ehrlich administration official, makes the case that he can do that because he is not a career politician.

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.
