Former Gov. Bob Ehrlich, who has shifted his focus away from Maryland politics in recent months, will jump into the state's most high profile race of 2012 by headlining a fundraiser for Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett next week. The event will take place on Monday at a restaurant in Buckeystown, where Bartlett owns a farm, and tickets will run from $100 to $2,500. The fundraiser appears to be among the first overt signs of support the state Republican apparatus has offered Bartlett, who faces the toughest reelection of his political career in November.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is scheduled to host what might be the single biggest fundraiser for Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown tonight in Potomac. The former secretary of state and potential presidential candidate is headlining Brown's 5 p.m. event at a wooded 2.8-acre estate in the wealthy Washington suburb. Tickets cost $4,000 each - even more for VIP tickets, according to an event invitation. Brown campaign manager Justin Schall said as many as 500 people might attend and the campaign expects to raise more than $1 million - a sum greater than that garnered during a May fundraiser for Brown featuring former President Bill Clinton.

Most fundraising events ask participants to buy -- food, decor, services. Columbia-based Gold Party Events, however, takes a different tack by asking participants to sell their old, unwanted or broken jewelry to benefit a cause. Here's how it works: Guests bring jewelry, silverware or hollowware for appraisal by a certified buyer, who makes offers on the items. Hosts and guests take away money for items they choose to sell, while a portion of the sale goes to support a fundraiser of the host's choice.

Hours before President Barack Obama was expected to appear in Maryland for a handful of fundraisers today, state Republicans cast his visit as an attempt to rally a base that they argued has been diminished by Democratic policies. "If this was four years ago, he'd be filling the convention center," said David Ferguson, executive director of the Maryland Republican Party, noting that Obama's second and larger fundraiser of the day will take place instead in an Inner Harbor hotel. The event is a fundraiser, not a rally.
