Well once again it is time for the citizens of Maryland to elect a governor. I wonder who the choices are. I remember in last election there were other parties that ran for this position. The Green Party and Ed Boyd, the Populist Party and Christopher A. Driscoll. However I do not remember hearing a lot about them or seeing much media coverage on them or on their platforms. I do kind of remember there was some debate sponsored by the media. However only certain candidates were invited to attend.

One year before the 2006 statewide election, Republican Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. trails his two chief rivals, with many voters approving the incumbent's job performance but signaling a desire to return the state to its traditional Democratic roots. Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley leads Ehrlich by 15 percentage points, 48 percent to 33 percent, according to a poll conducted for The Sun by the independent, nonpartisan firm Potomac Inc. Montgomery County Executive Douglas M. Duncan has a 5 percentage point lead on the governor but has gained little ground on the mayor in the weeks after the two Democrats' formal entry into the governor's race.

Washington. -- Had David Dinkins won in New York, the message would have been that President Clinton's visit (along with Hillary Rodham Clinton's and Tipper Gore's visits) demonstrated the growing political power of this administration.Had Jim Florio won in New Jersey, it would have meant that higher taxes don't bother voters. And had Mary Sue Terry become the first woman governor of Virginia, pundits would have said the year of the liberal woman had been extended.Instead, the clear message of Tuesday's ''off-year'' elections was that Mr. Clinton is the one having the off year.

GOV. WILLIAM Donald Schaefer wasn't the only voter left waiting for his polling place to open on Tuesday. Across Baltimore City many polling places opened late because the one Democratic election judge and one Republican election judge as required by law weren't on hand, said Barbara E. Jackson, the Baltimore elections board administrator.For some unexplained reason on Tuesday, a large number of election judges -- at least 100 -- failed to show up at their assigned polls.The board of elections had 45 stand-by election judges on hand, Ms. Jackson said, and all were dispatched in cabs to polling places that called for help.

LONG ODDS don't scare Charles I. Ecker. He proved that seven years ago when he surprised virtually everybody by winning the Howard County executive's race against a Democratic incumbent. Now the moderate Republican faces another uphill campaign, against Ellen R. Sauerbrey, for the GOP's gubernatorial nomination.At the moment, Ms. Sauerbrey is entrenched as the heavy Republican favorite, having narrowly lost the governor's race in 1994. Already, some Republican moderates have drifted into her conservative camp, hoping to be with a winner in 1998.

Parris N. Glendening and Republican Ellen R. Sauerbrey. In renewing their battle of four years ago, the candidates have blasted each other as political extremists -- and given voters a stark choice.

Ehrlich Jr. is looking more closely at jumping into the race.The third-term Republican from Baltimore County served in the General Assembly for eight years before going to Washington and would enjoy a return to Annapolis.In the past six months, Ehrlich, 41, has begun to conclude that the 2002 election might well give him the chance to do that."It's an option that we're taking more seriously than before," Ehrlich says of a run for governor.

Baltimore County Executive James T. Smith Jr. declined Friday to enter the race for state Senate, but with more than a million dollars in campaign funds at his disposal, he's expected to play a significant role in the 2010 elections for local and state offices, including governor. Smith, a Democrat who was believed to be planning a run for the General Assembly — going as far as putting his longtime family home on the market last fall and moving to an apartment in the 7th District — ruled out a run for the seat held by Republican state Sen. Andrew P. Harris.

The Preakness Stakes has a 135-year tradition of producing not just a winning horse but a winning politician — Maryland's governor, who gets a brief moment in the national spotlight awarding the second jewel of racing's Triple Crown. Saturday was no exception, and Gov. Martin O'Malley, who has been an attending dignitary for more than a decade, first as Baltimore mayor, said he felt an even deeper sense of pride this year. "It's the first time I can remember coming here without the cloud hanging over my head about whether Preakness will be here next year," he said.

When former (and, he hopes, future) Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. gave one of his semi-annual guest lectures to Towson University Professor Richard Vatz's political rhetoric class on Thursday, he skipped the campaigning and instead served up lessons for the students on how to cut through political spin. It is advice voters would be well advised to take and apply to the candidates in this election — him included. •Themes. Campaign themes, Mr. Ehrlich said, are shorthand ways for people to identify with candidates without getting bogged down in the specifics.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. told listeners of his WBAL radio talk show Saturday that he will stay behind the microphone until July, when he officially files his candidacy with the state elections board. "BAL has asked, and we've agreed that I stay on this show ... until [I] become an official candidate," Ehrlich told listeners at the start of the two-hour "Bob and Kendel Ehrlich Show."

As Maryland's first Republican governor in a generation learns to negotiate the shoals of Annapolis, and Baltimore's Democratic mayor learns how important it is to plow side streets, the maneuvering is already under way for a highly anticipated match-up in the governor's race of 2006. It might seem early to start talking about it, but don't think the prospect of a gubernatorial race between Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. and Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley has not crossed the minds of those two politicians, even if the date is still three years away.

Governor pledges funds for schools Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. pledged to spend $338 million next year on school construction, matching this year's level that was among the highest allocations in Maryland history. Speaking at the groundbreaking of a new high school outside of Frederick, Ehrlich said population growth in the state -- expected to increase in the next few years with the national realignment of military bases -- demands increased investments in schools. But the campaign of his Democratic opponent in the governor's race, Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley, called Ehrlich's promise an election-year gimmick designed to detract attention from his cuts to construction-funding earlier in his term.

Speaking Tuesday morning to the Pikesville Chamber of Commerce, former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. outlined policies -- many of them involving taxes -- that he said have made the state's business climate inhospitable to employers. " Maryland is a great state, but it sure makes it difficult to make a buck," he said. The state's only Republican governor in the past four decades said small business owners should make an effort to unseat legislators who have voted for such policies, but he dodged questions about his own potential candidacy.

As Marylanders wait to hear whether the rumors are true of a potential bid by Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. to recapture the governor's office he lost four years ago, a report released in recent weeks by the Center for American Politics and Citizenship at the University of Maryland, College Park, provides a detailed snapshot of the fundraising results from the epic 2006 governor's race Mr. Ehrlich lost to then-Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley. The big story that jumps out from the report, co-written by David Searle, James Curry and CAPC director Paul Herrnson, is the sheer magnitude of the sums raised and spent by the two party tickets.
