If the first political ad for the general election is any indication, the battle for the governor's mansion may take a negative tone, some political observers say. Democrat Anthony G. Brown released a 30-second TV spot Friday that takes a swipe at his opponent's economic policies, saying Republican Larry Hogan would "take Maryland families backwards" if elected governor. Brown has put at least $23,000 toward airing the ad in the Baltimore market this weekend, according to reports filed with regulatory agencies.

The presidential campaign entered September rife with negativity, as the Republican National Committee launched a long-awaited assault on Democrat Al Gore's honesty and the major-party candidates strafed the countryside with increasingly vitriolic exchanges. An RNC ad - due to begin running today in 16 states - accuses Gore of perpetually "reinventing" himself and spotlights his controversial 1996 fund-raising visit to a Southern California Buddhist temple. The ad, approved by the Bush campaign, coincides with a sharply hostile turn in the tone adopted by the Republican and Democratic tickets.

It was strictly sibling revelry at the 111th running of the Maryland Hunt Cup yesterday in Glyndon. In his first trip around the demanding four-mile course, Stewart Strawbridge impressively guided The Bruce to a three-length victory for the trainer, half-sister Sanna Hendriks, who was so thrilled she fumbled the trophy on the winner's stand after the race. Owned by Strawbridge and bred in New Zealand, The Bruce basically accomplished the chore by running on the front end, several times turning back challengers and finishing strongly to beat defending champion Bug River and Lear Charm, who wound up in a dead heat for second.

WASHINGTON -- President Bush, continuing a steep slide from the heights in public opinion polls, would find himself in a dead heat if he were running for re-election today against an unnamed Democratic candidate, according to a new nationwide pollHowever, in a race against Gov. Mario M. Cuomo of New York, the Democrat most preferred by members of his own party, Bush still wins handily. Nonetheless, the new poll results reflect a significant erosion of the president's standing among voters -- apparently as a result of growing concern over his handling of the nation's troubled economy.

With tens of thousands of ballots yet to be counted, the bitterly fought House race between Democrat Frank M. Kratovil Jr. and Republican Andy Harris is unlikely to be settled before the end of next week, state officials said yesterday. Kratovil, the state's attorney for Queen Anne's County, led Harris, a state senator from Cockeysville, by fewer than 1,000 of the more than 329,000 votes cast Tuesday in the contest for the seat now held by longtime Rep. Wayne T. Gilchrest. The tally doesn't include the more than 25,000 absentee ballots that elections officials are to begin counting today.

WASHINGTON - President Bush's Iraq policy has endured one setback after another: A failure to find weapons of mass destruction. An insurgency that has killed more and more Americans. Explosive allegations of abuse and sexual humiliation of Iraqi prisoners. In response, his approval ratings have slipped, hitting their lowest point ever in some polls. But while more voters are holding the president accountable for what they view as failures in Iraq, they seem far from ready to abandon him in his bid for re-election.
