Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan got a helping hand Wednesday from one of his party's best-known figures as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie came to Maryland to raise money for the GOP. Christie, chair of the Republican Governors Association, arrived at a lunchtime fundraiser at a Bethesda restaurant to benefit Hogan and said the race's changing dynamics brought him to Maryland. "This race is closing, and that's why I'm here," Christie said. "In the beginning, it didn't look like a race that was going to be tight, but it is tight now. That's why I'm here, and that's why the RGA is going to be here to help him because we think he's got a good chance here.

 For more than 60 years with hardly a break, the Republican Partyhas chosen as its standard-bearer someone who has been able to claim it's his turn. Not since military hero Dwight D. Eisenhower defeated Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio, whose supporters so contended in 1952, has a conspicuous outsider run away with the prize. Patience nearly always has been rewarded for party stalwarts, whether it was Richard Nixon in 1960, Barry Goldwater in 1964, Nixon again in 1968, Gerald Ford in 1976, Ronald Reagan in 1980, the senior George Bush in 1988, Bob Dole in 1996, the junior George Bushin 2000, John McCain in 2008 or Mitt Romney in 2012.

COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland women's basketball coach Chris Weller has called this year's team potentially the best she ever has coached, largely because of her bench.It's becoming clear that if the eighth-ranked Terps are to advance in the NCAA tournament, Weller's bench will have to step up to warrant its billing.The bench players more than held their own Saturday night, as Maryland, the Mideast Region's second seed, beat 10th seed Toledo, 73-60, to earn a spot in Thursday's regional semifinals against Purdue in West Lafayette, Ind.In particular, junior reserve guards Estelle Christy and Katrina Colleton, both forced to play out of position because of the Rockets' three-point shooting, gave the Terps important minutes.

A pretty good series returns, other regular series and a TV movie offer some familiar guest stars, and a cable movie screening presents a resolution of the unfinished final work by novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald.* "Christy" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- A protest effort by fans, launched when CBS abruptly pulled "Christy" from the schedule back around Thanksgiving, has brought the show back for a last chance to find more viewers. Kellie Martin stars as a backwoods school teacher, and Tyne Daly is the missionary who hired her. Episodes are scheduled for tonight and next week, in place of "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman."

Elaine Hannon Christy, who reinvented herself through a series of careers including construction, interior design and retailing at a time when few women worked, died Tuesday of heart failure at Manor Care Nursing Home in Towson. She was 81. Born in Catonsville to a strict Roman Catholic family, she exhibited early on what would be a lifelong streak of independence when, as a teen-ager, she changed her given name, Mary Theresa, to Elaine. Before long, she was selling cosmetics, modeling at Hecht United Brothers, and selling dresses at Frank's near Greenmount Avenue and 33rd Street.

CBS calls it "Christy," but you can call it "Daughter of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman."It's a new drama series that premieres tomorrow night, starring Kellie Martin as a turn-of-the-century mission-school teacher in the hills of Tennessee. It's based on Catherine Marshall's novel of the same title.The series is part adventure story and part girl-coming-of-age, with a heavy dose of "The Waltons" thrown in.It's romantic, sentimental, sometimes stereotyped and, in the end, a great showcase for the considerable talents of Martin, who almost singlehandedly carried "Life Goes On" in its final season last year.

Former Gov. Robert L. Whatshisname Jr. has done it again. According to him, Chris Christie is totally exonerated in Bridgegate because an investigation has totally cleared him from any involvement ( "Chris Christie is not a 'small ball' politician," April 13). What he left out is that the investigation was done by the New Jersey governor's office and none of the principals were interviewed. This is positively Nixonian to do a self-investigation and self-exoneration. It is in the style of Fox News to spin it in this manner.

Perhaps you missed ... a regional National Labor Relations Board decision that ruled Northwestern University's football players are "employees" subject to union representation. And before you dismiss this decision as the ravings of some bureaucrat laborite, remember that the appeal goes to the full Barack Obama-controlled board, now simply a satellite operation for the AFL-CIO. My readers can figure out the myriad problems with this concept on their own, but allow me one simple illustration of the awkwardness involved.

Gov. Chris Christie, beleaguered back in New Jersey and in the national media over the scandal of contrived traffic jams on the George Washington Bridge, unveiled his strategy for putting his 2016 presidential aspirations back on track the other day before the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. As they say in some unsavory Jersey quarters, he clammed up in the hope of making the problem go away. His earlier claim of having been kept in the dark about the plot to make a Democratic mayor pay for failing to endorse his successful re-election only heightened the political heat on him. So Mr. Christie pivoted to preaching to the choir on his conservative bona fides.

In a publicity stunt that is sure to irritate 13-year-old boys and feminist scholars, Sports Illustrated and toy-maker Mattel have teamed up for the magazine's 50th anniversary swimsuit issue. Wearing an updated version of the black and white swimsuit she wore when she was introduced in 1959, Barbie appears on a giant billboard mock-up of the magazine cover and in a 4-page photo spread inside the magazine. The doll will also appear on a special edition wrap-cover of about 1,000 issues, and the only ones happy about this will be the 1,000 mothers and wives who won't have to look at three unearthly beautiful topless models who will appear on the actual front of the magazine when it hits newsstands Tuesday.

To someone who has been engaged for most of his life in both politics and the media, the parallel story lines of Chris Christie and Rupert Murdoch are fascinating. Both hold reputations as tough, hard-fisted taskmasters - brilliant, successful, in their respective fields: Murdoch as a publisher, Christie as a politician. Until recently, that is. They've stumbled. Some say mightily; others suggest only modestly. Governor Christie and his staff are under investigation for allegedly clogging up bridges, using federal funds inappropriately, bullying local officials and plying friendly politicians with appointments and lucrative projects.

As New Jersey Gov.Chris Christie plays the victim in the George Washington Bridge scandal, betrayed as he puts it by underlings in his office, much political crepe is being draped around his broad shoulders. But it doesn't necessarily have to be a shroud over his national ambitions. Surviving advisers say the governor will be pressing on, as recently elected chairman of the Republican Governors Association, with a six-state fund-raising and candidate-boosting tour in the Northeast, South and Rockies, focusing on party-building and his personal appeal as a straight-talker.

I know and like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the man who has accomplished so much while leading a blue leaning, labor dominated northeastern state. And so it was with much angst that I watched the media circus (dressed up as a press conference) in the immediate aftermath of "Bridgegate" - the revenge play wherein two senior Christie staffers ordered lane closures on the congested George Washington Bridge - allegedly to punish the Democratic mayor of Fort Lee, N.J., who failed to support the governor's re-election campaign.

What a bizarre spectacle. Assuming he did not lie during his marathon news conference, the feeding frenzy surrounding New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will be remembered as one of those incredibly odd moments of elite journalistic hysteria that are difficult to explain to people who weren't there or didn't get it. I'm not referring to the scandal itself; that's easy enough to understand. What Mr. Christie's team did was outrageous and deserves as much foofaraw and brouhaha as the New Jersey media can muster.
