When Julio Martinez crossed the U.S. border illegally more than a decade ago, his attorneys say, he was running for his life, attempting to escape the deadly and pervasive gang he joined in his native El Salvador as a 14-year-old boy. Martinez, who entered the country in 2000 and lived in Middle River for years, is now at the center of a legal question that has split federal courts and that could have significant implications for U.S. immigration...

Anne Arundel Republican county executive candidates Laura Neuman and Steve Schuh traded barbs in a debate this week in Annapolis. Neuman, who was appointed county executive to replace John R. Leopold last year, and Schuh, a two-term state delegate, have been duking it out in the GOP primary for months. Neuman used Monday's debate to attack Schuh for his actions as a state legislator and his campaign tactics. She mentioned multiple times that Schuh voted for the state law that requires Anne Arundel and other jurisdictions to charge a stormwater remediation fee — dubbed a "rain tax" by detractors — to pay for pollution-reduction programs.

Public education - the new hybrid school board, school safety and overcrowding - dominated discussions among the three candidates for the 42nd District's state Senate seat. Just six weeks before the primary, incumbent Sen. Jim Brochin, a Democrat of Towson, Democrat Connie DeJuliis, of Glen Arm, who represented Dundalk in the House of Delegates for one term in the 1990s, and Republican Tim Robinson, a physician from Timonium, faced off at the Idlewylde Community Center. Brochin, who is seeking his fourth term, will face DeJuliis in the Democratic primary election June 24. The winner will face Robinson in the general election Nov. 4. All three candidates told the audience of about 25 that they believe these issues were better handled by county officials, but promised their support.

Christopher Doyle says he doesn't think there is anything wrong with being gay, but he also believes he can help children and others rid themselves of "unwanted same-sex attractions" through therapy sessions in a tidy suburban home in Bowie. That has made the licensed psychotherapist the target of intense criticism over the years - so much so, he says, that he closely protects the address of the International Healing Foundation, the nearly 25-year-old nonprofit he runs. "Unfortunately, we get targeted by activists," Doyle said in the home on a recent morning.

One might have sympathized with Del. Heather Mizeur during Wednesday night's debate among the Democratic gubernatorial candidates when it came her turn to answer a question about whether the Washington Redskins should change its name. It's not that she was unprepared for the question — quite the contrary, she and the other candidates all believe that it should be changed and have said so before — but that she seized the occasion for a rather desperate segue into an issue that a Maryland governor actually has something to do with: her proposal to require a "living wage" substantially higher the increased minimum wage the state just enacted.

Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown's campaign insists he's no diva. Bringing his own makeup artist to last night's televised debate was part of his pre-game prep. Before the three Democrat candidates went on stage for the first televised debate hosted by NBC, the network offered to lend their makeup artists to the candidates. Both Gansler and Mizeur accepted but according to a copy of the pre-debate schedule obtained by The Sun, Brown “will do his own make-up.” In fact, Brown has his own makeup person, whom the campaign hired for other photo shoots and television ads and brought to the University of Maryland College Park Wednesday night to get Brown ready for the bright lights.

Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown and Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler launched barbed attacks on each other's record and character as they and Del. Heather R. Mizeur met in the Democratic gubernatorial campaign's first televised debate Wednesday night. As Brown and Gansler exchanged acrimonious remarks over everything from the rollout of Obamacare to a raucous teen party Gansler failed to break up last year, Mizeur admonished her better-known rivals for "bickering" instead of talking about solution's to Maryland's problems.

Having an experienced TV moderator went a long way Wednesday night in making Maryland's first debate among the Democratic candidates for governor a lively and occasionally illuminating hour of television. David Gregory is getting hammered these days by the critics and in the ratings for his work on NBC's “Meet the Press,” but he showed more than enough political savvy and TV smarts to keep the Maryland debate on point most of the night. He quickly sharpened the focus and heightened conflict among two of the candidates by using his first question to ask who should be blamed for the disastrous rollout of the Maryland health care exchange.
