Anne Arundel's Republican county executive candidates Laura Neuman and Steve Schuh continued their intense and personal primary fight during a debate in Severna Park Wednesday night. Though they spent most of the debate treading familiar territory - who has a better record on taxes, who is best to continue to move past the scandal of the previous county executive - the debate brought forth a new accusation. Neuman, the current county executive, alleged that one of the restaurants co-owned by Schuh allowed Hell's Angels members to show their colors, despite a request from county police not to allow the practice.

For today's edition of the Maryland Democratic gubernatorial debate fact-check, we'll focus on a recurring point of contention between Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown and Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler, and on the one aspect of Del. Heather Mizeur's platform that generated significant disagreement among the candidates. Is Virginia 'cleaning our clock'? Mr. Gansler attacked the economic record of Mr. Brown and Gov. Martin O'Malley in part by suggesting the economy in Virginia is much stronger than the economy in Maryland.

When the Democrats running for governor met for their second three-way television debate Monday night, charges and countercharges flew - along with allegations of distortion, deception and half-truths. Doug Gansler was especially aggressive, pointing to votes Anthony Brown cast in the General Assembly more than a decade ago to make the case that Brown lacks sympathy for crime victims. Heather Mizeur avoided finger-pointing, but was the target of one of Gansler's more easily debunked - and likely intentionally sarcastic - claims.

The Democrats running for governor traded barbs Monday night over Maryland's economy, marijuana laws, and the troubled rollout of its health insurance website in their final televised debate before a primary in which pundits suggest many voters are still undecided. Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown and Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler repeatedly clashed, accusing the other of deceiving the voters. Even Del. Heather R. Mizeur, who stood above the fray in the previous three-way debate, was drawn into the contentious exchanges.

Last week, I thought Lt. Governor Anthony Brown was the loser among Democratic candidates for not showing up at WBFF's TV debate. And he was. But he was an even bigger loser Monday in showing up for the debate on Maryland Public Television. No wonder he doesn't want to do these TV debates. It's not just incumbency; he's terrible on television. His answers are just this side of bureaucratic doublespeak - exactly the rhetoric of Washington and Annapolis unaccountability that makes some voters want to scream.

The three Democratic candidates for governor will all meet for their second televised debate Monday night on Maryland Public Television and WBAL-TV, giving voters their final opportunity to see them confront each other on television. Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler and Del. Heather R. Mizeur will go on at 7 p.m. in a debate hosted by MPT's Jeff Salkin. The three met last month in a televised debate at the University of Maryland College Park in an exchange that included lively confrontations between Brown and Gansler while Mizeur largely stayed above the fray.

With just three weeks to go until Maryland's gubernatorial primaries, the next few days will offer voters the last chance to see or hear each party's candidates on the same stage at the same time. Democrats will hold their third televised debate (and the second in which Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown will participate) tomorrow and a radio debate the following morning. Republicans will hold their final debate (and their only encounter to be televised state-wide) on Friday. There remain key questions about all of the candidates in both fields, and we hope their opponents or the moderators will push them beyond what we've heard so far. Here's what we'd like to know about each of them: Democrats • Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown: Mr. Brown has already been the subject of intense criticism over the failed roll-out of Maryland's health insurance exchange website.

Harford County Executive David R. Craig, Del. Ron George of Anne Arundel County, former Ehrlich administration official Larry Hogan and Charles County business executive Charles Lollar vied to see who could describe the state's economic circumstances in more dire terms.

In answer to reporters' questions about why he skipped last Tuesday's gubernatorial debate on WBFF-TV — or if he was bothered that the television station had presented him as an empty podium — Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown grinned and said the following: "I'm looking forward to the Baltimore debate on WBAL next week on Monday, and then later next week we'll be at the Larry Young [radio] show. ... Look, I'm looking forward to next week's debate. ... I'm looking forward to next week's debate, guys, it's the Baltimore debate I'm looking forward to on WBAL.

The images of two Democratic candidates for governor debating  -- with the missing third candidate represented by a lonely lectern and a name tag - have quickly shown up in a new television ad.    Democratic candidate and Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler has pounced on front-runner Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's absence at Tuesday night's debate at the WBFF (Fox45) studios. Gansler's 30-second spot - to appear in the Baltimore market immediately - opens with Gansler and Del. Heather Mizeur smiling and being applauded by the debate audience.
