Democratic gubernatorial candidate Heather R. Mizeur called for tightening of Maryland's laws on long guns Thursday night in the wake of the shotgun attack that took three lives at The Mall in Columbia Saturday. Her proposal came as the Montgomery County delegate met Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler at a forum that drew two-thirds of the Democratic field in the 2014 race for governor to the giant Leisure World senior complex in Montgomery County. Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, whose father died earlier in the day, did not attend.

Maryland's three Democratic candidates for attorney general are likely to debate how to enforce environmental laws, fight high-tech crime and crack down on home foreclosures at their first debate Monday night in a race that will likely determine who will be the state's top lawyer. State Sen. Brian E. Frosh, Del. Jon S. Cardin and Del. Aisha Braveboy are seeking the Democratic nomination in a race that party's nominee has won in every election for almost a century. The winner of this year's June 24 primary will face Jeffrey N. Pritzker, a Towson lawyer who would be the first Republican elected to the office since 1919, and Leo Wayne Dymowski, a Libertarian.

WASHINGTON -- Bill Richardson, the avuncular governor of New Mexico, an internationalist with a gold-plated resume, announced yesterday his intention to seek the Democratic presidential nomination, making history as the first Latino to have a credible chance to lead a national ticket. On paper, Richardson's credentials are unassailable. He has served as a member of Congress, ambassador to the United Nations, energy secretary and, since, 2002, the governor of a state in the heart of the rapidly growing Sun Belt.

If the Democratic primary is likely to decide who will be the state's next governor - a reasonable but not entirely certain proposition, given the balance of power between the state's two major parties - at this point in the contest two somewhat contradictory realities are in evidence. This first is that the battle between Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler and Del. Heather R. Mizeur for the Democratic nomination is anybody's race to win. A new OpinionWorks poll for the Baltimore Sun revealed that, with only four months to go before the June 24 primary, a remarkable 40 percent of likely Democratic voters are undecided.

DES MOINES, Iowa - With the candidates hurtling toward the first 2004 presidential vote two weeks from tomorrow, the contest comes down to this: The nomination could be decided earlier than ever - before most Democrats cast primary ballots or even learn much about their likely nominee. If that happens, the winner will be Howard Brush Dean III, a still largely unknown politician whose phenomenal rise to pre-eminence in a crowded field is the story of the race so far. Dean expects to be a target of renewed attacks when the candidates meet in a televised debate today in Iowa, a prelude to the Jan. 19 caucuses.

WASHINGTON - Breaking with a nearly 30-year tradition, former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean announced yesterday that he would become the first Democratic presidential candidate ever to opt out of the system for publicly financing elections. Speaking to supporters in Vermont, Dean said that only by rejecting public financing - and the spending limits it imposes - could he compete financially with President Bush if he wins the Democratic nomination. Bush has rejected public financing and is aiming to raise at least $175 million by the Republican National Convention in September.

A pathetic is the adjective often used to describe the electorate, but the a-word that might better describe voters in Baltimore's suburbs is angry.You could sense it in the gubernatorial vote, as Del. Ellen Sauerbrey's minimalist government message swept through thesuburbs like an autumn brush fire. She beat Rep. Helen Bentley by 2-1 in growing counties like Howard and Carroll, and even bested Mrs. Bentley in the two candidates' own backyard, Baltimore County. You could also sense it in the Democratic primary; state Sen. American Joe Miedusiewski's "average Joe" campaign resonated defiantly in a blue-collar belt from northern Anne Arundel into Baltimore and Harford counties, although Prince George's County Executive Parris Glendening won over all.In the county executive races, voters also showed disdain for any government they perceive as spending too much or not protecting them enough.

Not long ago, the common wisdom was that Republican County Executive Charles I. Ecker would coast into a second term. The sailing might not be so smooth, however, now that Susan B. Gray has captured the Democratic nomination to run against Mr. Ecker in November. Ms. Gray's surprising win Tuesday has altered the political landscape in a county that, otherwise, held a predictable primary.It is not just the Republicans who have their task cut out for them. Democratic Party regulars must now scramble to figure out how to run on a ticket headed by a woman whose views about curtailing future growth and development in the county are not shared by the rank and file.

Not counting rumors that Anthony Weiner's marriage has hit a rocky patch, it may be the worst-kept secret in politics: Joe Biden wants to be president. On Monday, The Wall Street Journal reported that the vice president's inner circle is swabbing the decks, battening down the hatches and hoisting the mainsails for USS Bidenpalooza 2016. "Everyone involved in his world," a Democratic official told the Journal, "is engaged in taking all the steps that make sense to prepare for a run, if he does run. " Mr. Biden's people are apparently willing to go for it even if the allegedly inevitable nominee, Hillary Clinton, decides to run. Why is this happening?

In the cease-fire struck between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got second billing to Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi's role as the prime go-between, and rightly so. But her highly visible hand-holding on both sides did nothing to quiet chatter about her political strength at home as a potential presidential candidate in 2016. Her visits to Tel Aviv for a talk with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and to Ramallah to confer with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas underscored President Obama's confidence in her in sending her from Burma, where she had been accompanying him, directly to the Middle East to try to put out the fire.

Whom do you trust: Mary Kay Sigaty, a 60-year-old woman who lives between the Mall in Columbia and the Wilde Lake Village Center and has spent decades doing community volunteer work topped by two years on the county school board and four on the County Council — including preparing new zoning for what she believes will be central Columbia's revival? Or Alan Klein, a 56-year-old man whose family was involved in Columbia's first years, who says he's imbued with the values that James W. Rouse espoused, and who says the zoning for Columbia's town center redevelopment is a sell-out to master developer General Growth Properties — an example of elected officials being co-opted instead of standing up for constituents?

DENVER - Barack Obama accepted the Democratic presidential nomination last night with a scathing assessment of John McCain and a searing indictment of the Bush administration, promising to repair "the broken politics of Washington" and preside over a more prosperous and equitable America. Speaking to a rapturous audience of more than 80,000, the largest U.S. political convention crowd ever assembled, Obama delivered an address that was alternately outraged and uplifting, personal and political.

Bethesda -- With a populist message and a few digs at the front-runners, politics professor and commentator Allan J. Lichtman entered the race for the U.S. Senate yesterday. Though he has never run for office, Lichtman told a crowd of supporters gathered at the North Bethesda Middle School that he will capture the Democratic nomination and win the general election by waging a grass-roots campaign against corporate interests and the Washington establishment. "I am running to change what is wrong in Washington," he said.

The feminist-baiting males in my life are asking, with barely contained glee, if I am sad that Hillary Clinton didn't win the Democratic nomination for president. They assume I wanted a female nominee. No, I tell them, I wanted an electable nominee. And she was it. It seems strange to say this now. I used to think that Hillary was the most unelectable of the Democratic contenders. Too much Clinton baggage, even for me. I didn't know if I could hold my breath for four years, waiting for Bill to misbehave.
