WASHINGTON -- With Sen. John McCain securing his party's nomination this week, many Republicans in Maryland and across the country are coming to grips with a candidate who was not their first choice. "I have a pretty long list of concerns, but Republicans tend to be loyalists," said Michael D. Zimmer, a Carroll County commissioner who originally backed Rep. Tom Tancredo of Colorado. "I don't think there will be quite the same level of intensity at the grass roots for McCain as for, say, a Mitt Romney."

The citizens of Harford County face a crucial decision on Feb. 12. We must choose a person to serve as a judge on the Circuit Court. I believe that Charles Wagner is the best person for the job. In fact, the Republican Central Committee of Harford County has endorsed Wagner. Wagner has served our community for years as a volunteer and as a general practice attorney. He has shown a real concern for victims of crimes and those in need. His demeanor is reserved and he will use restraint in applying the law as it is written.

Harford GOP has too few true members I noticed that The Sun endorsed every switch-o-crat (defined as a Democrat who switches parties because the county is trending Republican) running in Tuesday's Republican primary. Consistent with your endorsements, every switch-o-crat was apparently successful in the primary elections. Although you did not endorse in the Register of Wills race, recent party-switcher Harry Hopkins is holding a slight lead over local GOP leader Bill Christoforo in that race.

From: Laura GreenCounty Republican PartyKimberly McCoyCounty Democratic PartyThe Anne Arundel County Republican Party and the Anne Arundel County Democratic Party have pledged to work together in an effort to legally fight for the interests of the residents of Anne Arundel County in our right to be the heart of one congressional district.The congressional redistricting process has split our county into four pieces, none of which is the majority of a congressional district. The effect of this gerrymandering is that Anne Arundel County voters have been disenfranchised fora decade, bereft of a strong congressional voice.

Howard County State's Attorney Timothy J. McCrone announced this week he is seeking a second term as the county's top prosecutor. At a fundraiser at Yingling-Ridgely VFW Post 7472 in Ellicott City, McCrone told supporters that he never forgets that the county's quality of life depends "in significant measure on public safety and justice." "Our children, our businesses and our senior citizens can only thrive in a community where we cherish safety and justice," McCrone said Wednesday evening, surrounded by a crowd of more than 150 at the event that grossed about $15,000.

A memorial service for state Sen. Robert H. Kittleman isn't scheduled until Tuesday, but the Howard County Republican Party is advertising for candidates to replace him and plans a final vote Sept. 29, said Howard Rensin, county party chairman. Most Republicans are publicly declining to speculate about a replacement for Kittleman, 78, who died Saturday of leukemia, as maneuvering for the job goes on behind the scenes. "It's a public process that's not public," said Donald F. Norris, a professor of public policy at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

SILVER SPRING - Rolling out a partisan message he believes will resonate with voters, Republican Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. criticized yesterday what he called the entrenched "status quo" gripping a General Assembly that thwarted much of his agenda before concluding earlier this week. Ehrlich returned to campaign-style themes in delivering his first major speech since the legislature adjourned. He told a crowd of 600 at a Montgomery County Republican Party fund-raising dinner that he will fulfill the mandate for change he says he received during last year's election.

Standing at dawn beside a busy road in Ellicott City on a recent chilly morning, Tony Salazar wore a fixed smile above his pressed shirt, tie and blue blazer. He waved his hands vigorously at passing commuters from behind a large white-and-red campaign sign, drawing an occasional horn toot or a wave. "In a way, this one for me is a lot more pleasant because I know a lot more people," he said, comparing his current quest for the District 1 seat on the Howard County Council to his unsuccessful 2004 campaign for Maryland's 7th District congressional seat.

MARYLAND Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele isn't looking for a house to buy in Howard County, but it does seem as if he is visiting more often as political activity picks up at summer's end. Steele, a Republican and likely candidate for the U.S. Senate, attended the county Republican Party golf tournament Tuesday at Waverly Woods, and he is due back in a few weeks for Republican County Councilman Christopher J. Merdon's $150-a-ticket fundraiser Sept. 22. Steele is not saying when or if he will announce his candidacy for the Senate seat from which Democrat Paul S. Sarbanes is retiring next year, but one attendee said Steele told local party faithful that Howard is a wealthy county, and he will need its residents' help if he does run. Howard County Councilman Charles C. Feaga said Steele told the GOP faithful that "being rich, we have more responsibility to make things happen.

WITH BLUE "Merdon, County Executive" signs plastered everywhere, the annual Howard County Republican party's Lincoln Day Dinner at Turf Valley looked more like the launching of the county councilman's 2006 campaign than what it was - a fund-raising gathering for the party. County Councilman Christopher J. Merdon, the Ellicott City Republican expected to oppose council Chairman Guy Guzzone, a North Laurel-Savage Democrat, for the county executive's job next year, was also out sign waving with a group of supporters early Wednesday morning at Broken Land and Little Patuxent parkways.

HOWARD COUNTY'S next election is 20 months away, but party leaders are already working to field strong candidate slates. The county executive's job and at least three of the five County Council seats will be without incumbents and up for grabs, and several General Assembly seats might also come open. "We started working on the candidates and building a list a year ago," said Brian Harlin, vice chairman of the county Republican Party and a former County Council candidate. He has a list of 15 to 20 people who might run, he said.

Republicans traveling to Houston for our party's convention have at least one thing in common with the Democrats who just returned from New York: We all have the unenviable chore of explaining why the band is playing ''O, Christmas Tree'' while our home-grown political stars are introduced to the assembled delegates.For a state that has enough parochial pride to designate a state tree, flower, fossil, crustacean, insect, ship and dog, we sure do have a lousy song. And no acceptable alternative . . . or so I once thought.

Howard County Republicans are so outraged by the large increase in local income taxes enacted by County Executive James N. Robey and the majority Democrats, they are advertising it in large, black print. But the party's concern with what it terms "OUT OF CONTROL SPENDING!" in the ads, which have run in The Sun and several Howard County weeklies, ignores the spending decisions of a Republican president and GOP-controlled Congress. Those decisions are predicted to produce a $477 billion deficit this year, rising to $521 billion next year in President Bush's proposed budget, which calls for making federal income tax cuts permanent.
