Former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge endorsed Daniel Bongino in his uphill campaign for U.S. Senate on Tuesday, becoming the latest in a string of high-profile Republicans who have backed the former Secret Service agent's first run for office. Ridge, who served as the nation's first Homeland Security Secretary and who many expected was on Sen. John McCain's vice presidential short-list in 2008, follows Sarah Palin, South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint and former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, all of whom have endorsed the Severna Park Republican in recent weeks.

Maryland Republicns will get a fundraising boost from Sen. Rand Paul tonight. Paul -- a Kentucky Republican often touted as a potential presidential candidate -- will speak to supporters at a fundraiser in Silver Spring. Individual tickets begin at $40 and sponsor-level tickets run as high as $2,000. Paul appeared earlier this year in Linthicum for a fundraiser organized by the Maryland Liberty Political Action Committee. "If we want to win again, if we want to be a bigger party, we have to go to different people with a message of hope and optimism," he said at the time.

U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin is not slick. You won't find him on the Sunday morning network talk shows very often. He isn't a partisan quote-machine. He doesn't give an especially stirring stump speech. But what Mr. Cardin does have is more valuable than that. He is a man of substance and integrity who understands complicated issues and the art of compromise. More than ever, the U.S. Senate needs such leaders, and that's why we proudly endorse him for a second term. Senator Cardin is a familiar presence on the Maryland political scene.

Republican Senate candidate Daniel Bongino began airing his first television ad Wednesday, a largely introductory spot that argues that Washington has "left behind significant portions of our inner city. " Bongino, who is seeking the GOP nomination in Tuesday's primary, is running the advertisement statewide on cable, according to his campaign. He speaks directly to the camera in the 30-second ad, arguing that "failed social policies" have destroyed "generations of families. " "We're headed in the wrong direction but that doesn't mean we have to keep walking," says Bongino, a former Secret Service agent who lives in Severna Park.

Incumbent Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin is up with his first television ad of the general election -- a spot that begins airing during tonight's playoff game between the Orioles and the Yankees. The ad, which plays off Cardin's reputation as a Senate workhorse, shows the senator slinging luggage onto airliners at Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. The ad is similar to one Cardin's campaign ran during the primary in which he was shown working as a waterman on the Chesapeake.

U.S. Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin kicked off his re-election campaign Sunday, promising several hundred supporters that he'd fight for better schools, more jobs, a cleaner environment and access to health care. "It's not about this election. It's about the next generation," Cardin said from a pier near the Baltimore Museum of Industry. He also vowed to fight tea party politicians and what he called their attempts to "turn back" social programs, women's rights and civil rights. Supporter Helen Stith-Smith, 66, cheered on Cardin for his near-15-minute speech.

WASHINGTON -- Maryland GOP Senate candidate Daniel Bongino will report raising at least $650,000 for his campaign since July, a significantly larger haul than he has had in any quarter since announcing his candidacy last year.    Bongino, who is running an underdog campaign against incumbent Democrat Sen. Ben Cardin, has been an aggressive candidate, but has lacked the financial resources needed to pose a serious threat to Cardin in deep blue Maryland. The latest number puts the former Secret Service agent in the same ballpark as Cardin for the first time.  "It shows momentum," Bongino said in an interview, noting that his campaign has doubled its fundraising over the past several quarters.

A Prince George's County state legislator, C. Anthony Muse, announced Thursday that he will seek the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate in Maryland this year, challenging Sen. Ben Cardin's bid for a second term. Muse, an African-American pastor who has served in the Maryland Senate since 2007, said he is running because he feels the country is on the wrong track. "The average person is suffering," he said. He said he has had no dealings with Cardin, which he said demonstrates that the incumbent has not reached out to local leaders to assess the problems in the state.

Independent U.S. Senate candidate Rob Sobhani agreed to pull down an advertisement he began airing on black radio stations this week that attacked incumbent Sen. Ben Cardin after state Democrats complained Friday the spot was riddled with inaccuracies. The ad plays a passage from a 2006 debate in which Cardin's one-time opponent, Kweisi Mfume, criticizes him for his time in office. "You get in Washington, you get this Potomac Fever -- you just think that God put you there," the ad quotes Mfume saying at the debate.

Four candidates for U.S. Senate wrangled over the economy, budget deficits and the state's controversial ballot initiatives in a Wednesday radio debate that stressed deep ideological differences on how to deal with the nation's pressing problems. Incumbent Democrat Ben Cardin, who is widely favored to win the race, and Republican challenger Daniel Bongino offered vastly different approaches to nearly every question. Cardin called for more investments in education and a mix of spending cuts and taxes to address the nation's budget woes.

They are here to support Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, but a handful of Marylanders considering a run for higher office are also hoping to benefit politically from his convention. The concentration of news media - both from Maryland and from other states - serves to elevate their profiles, and that helps with fundraising. There are more subtle advantages to attending the conventions, too: networking with party leaders, befriending longtime campaign volunteers and hearing national politicians at the top of their game give the most important addresses of their political careers.
