Frosh, a veteran state senator from Montgomery County who championed gun control and environmental protection, defeated two opponents to win Tuesday's Democratic primary for Maryland attorney general. Frosh, 67, who had trailed in early polls but was better-funded than his rivals, held a commanding lead over Baltimore County Del. Jon. S. Cardin - the nephew of U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin - and state Del. Aisha N. Braveboy of Prince George's County. After a concession call from Cardin, Frosh addressed supporters at the quaint Women's Club of Chevy Chase.

THE RELENTLESS challenges of growth and political opportunity characterize this year's campaign for Howard County's council and county executive. And, as befits a county with a tradition of citizen involvement - even when it comes with a NIMBY tinge - candidates for public office generally come to their races with estimable records of community service. This year is no exception. In many races, voters have difficult - if estimable - choices. County executive: Democrats will renominate the unspectacular but steady James Robey, who is unopposed in his party primary.

Two points stand out in your recent editorial about the 2014 gubernatorial race, one glaringly wrong, the other correct ("It's not over yet," May 31). The error occurs in your statement that "Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger is toying with a run for governor; he would be the only Baltimore-area candidate in the Democratic primary. " However, there is another candidate running in the Democratic primary, and he lives in Pikesville. That candidate's name is Ralph Jaffe, yours truly. And the last time I checked Pikesville was in the Baltimore area.

Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger, who has established himself as an authority on intelligence issues in Congress, will face a Democratic primary in June from an opponent who has spent his career working in the intel community. Paul Rundquist, a 25-year-old Gaithersburg resident, works as a contractor for the U.S. Department of Energy, reviewing Cold War-era documents slated for declassification to make sure they don't contain nuclear secrets. Before that he worked as a contract intelligence analyst for the agency.

I found it quite telling that The Sun focused on the fact that the Democratic primary for governor is far from decided in your, "A three-way race" (Feb. 16) even though the same holds true for the Republican primary! After all, what difference does it make because a Republican has about as much chance of being elected as The Sun does of being a fair and balanced paper!

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.

Baltimore has no favorite son or daughter in this year's gubernatorial race, so the Democratic contenders - all Washington-area residents - are stepping up their efforts to persuade city voters to adopt them. Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown and Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler have opened campaign offices in Baltimore and have launched phone bank operations. Del. Heather R. Mizeur's lower-budget campaign is doing the same work out of private homes. All are regular visitors to the city.

An ugly fight unfolded last week between gubernatorial aspirants Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown and Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler regarding their campaign rhetoric. Mr. Gansler was surreptitiously recorded saying, "I mean, right now [Mr. Brown's] campaign slogan is, 'Vote for me, I want to be the first African American governor of Maryland.' ... That's a laudable goal, but you need a second sentence: 'Because here's what I've done, and here's why I've done it.'" The Brown camp and other Democratic bigwigs are appalled: According to The Washington Post, which broke the story, Brown campaign manager Justin Schall stated that Mr. Gansler is "out of touch with Maryland's values," and to ensure that there was no lack of overreaction, Brown supporter Montgomery County Council member Valerie Ervin actually said, "White people don't like the race card being pulled on them, and he pulled the race card on Anthony.
