In the District 14B delegate race, the Republican incumbents and Democrat challengers are battling it out over the abortion question.Democrats Lloyd G. Knowles, 56, a former County Council member, and James B. Kraft, 41, a former county party chairman, say the state should remove all restrictions on Medicaid funding for abortions.Abortion is legal in Maryland. A 1968 law that banned abortion -- except for cases of rape, genetic defect or potential harm to the mother -- was voided in 1973 by the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe vs. Wade decision.

The Ellicott City condominium complex stood ominously before Bill Woodcock the other afternoon.Of 30 households, only six had registered Democrats.That's not good news for Woodcock, a Democratic candidate running for a House of Delegates seat in a district that has solidly backed two Republican incumbents in the past three elections.Not only that, those Republicans hold powerful leadership positions in the Maryland General Assembly: Robert H. Kittleman, the minority leader, and Robert L. Flanagan, the minority whip.

While Democrats are attacking delegates Robert H. Kittleman and Robert L. Flanagan on one side, fellow Republican John B. Clark contends the two incumbents are too liberal for the District 14B voters.When state Democratic leaders decided how to redraw state legislative districts after the 1990 Census, they carved out largely Democratic Columbia precincts that used to be in the 14th District, parceling them into a radically changed District 12, which stretches into southwest Baltimore County.

Flanagan -- who have represented District 14B for a combined 28 years.But Woodcock tried to use the experience of his rivals against them, suggesting that they are more interested in "political posturing, gamesmanship and division" than in representing the district that includes Ellicott City, western Howard and Columbia's River Hill village.

Before the next General Assembly session begins this January, House Speaker Casper R. Taylor Jr. must leave no doubt in his colleagues' minds that delegates from legislative districts that overlap jurisdictional boundaries deserve full membership and voting rights in the meetings of each subdivision's House delegation.The matter arose after the Democratic majority of the Montgomery County House delegation voted last week to oust Republican Dels. Robert H. Kittleman and Robert L. Flanagan of District 14B. The two delegates are based in Howard County, where 65,000 of their constituents live.

District 14, which covers all of the area west of Clarksville Pike (Route 108), is the only part of Howard County where Republicans dominate. Largely rural and conservative, this district, which includes a portion of Montgomery County, has nurtured several GOP leaders who are poised to take on greater roles in Annapolis.Given the apparent mood of the district and the potential of the candidates, Sen. Christopher J. McCabe deserves re-election. A year-old development officer, Mr. McCabe has proven to be an effective legislator who has been active on such issues as adoption and ethics reform.

Ellicott City lawyer Andrew D. Levy, who's trying to unseat Republican incumbents in District 14B, says "the two Bobs" are not telling the truth in a new cable TV ad in which they claim to have doubled the amount of school construction funds the county received.The 30-second spot for Dels. Robert H. Kittleman and Robert L. Flanagan began airing last week.More than 90 percent of the county's $12.9 million allotment for fiscal 1995 went to schools outside the district -- mainly to Del. Virginia M. Thomas' east Columbia district, Mr. Levy said.

Former County Executive Elizabeth Bobo criticized the Republican-dominated Howard County legislative delegation at a candidates forum yesterday, saying it takes a disingenuous approach to governing.Ms. Bobo, a Democratic candidate for delegate in District 12B, charged that the delegation consistently requests state money for school and road construction and other projects, boasting whenever financing comes through. On the other hand, it routinely advocates cutting taxes, she said."It's not an honest way to govern," Ms. Bobo said.
