Within hours of the Supreme Court's decision last week that closely-held corporations could deny coverage for contraceptives through their employees' health insurance policies if doing so violated the owners' religious convictions, Gov. Martin O'Malley took to Twitter to decry the verdict: "No woman should have her health care decisions made by her boss. Period. This decision is wrong and a setback for women's health. " Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, who is running to replace his term-limited boss, wasn't far behind with his own statement: "No one has the right to dictate personal health care decisions to a woman, certainly not her employer.

For Anthony Brown, the Hobby-Lobby decision seemed like manna from Heaven ( "Corporations trump people," June 30). Unable to run on Maryland's economy, jobs growth, tax rates, the health exchange rollout, his competence as an executive or the other issues central to this election, Mr. Brown and his special interest defenders are instead trying to frighten women for his own political gain. In his calculation, this is easier than, say, addressing the tens of thousands of women who have lost their jobs during his administration and, along with it, their employer-sponsored health insurance and the family planning and women's health services it covered.

So the primaries are over and a tiny fraction of the voters have chosen a retread of the O'Malley administration to run against a corporate Republican offering us the same old nostrums - tax cuts for businesses and the wealthy - that have failed America for the last 34 years ( "The race is on: Hogan, Brown begin sparring in contest for governor," June 25). How boring and predictable. Voters had a real choice this year in Del. Heather Mizeur's gubernatorial candidacy, but sadly not enough of them bothered to make the 10-minute visit to their polling station to cast a vote that would have made a difference.

The back-and-forth between the campaigns of Republican Larry Hogan and Democrat Anthony Brown on Wednesday provided a good preview, just hours after the polls closed in the primary, of what the race for governor is going to be like. Mr. Hogan released a quickly produced, web-only ad attacking Mr. Brown as incompetent and blaming him for the tax hikes and rise in unemployment that occurred during his eight years as lieutenant governor. And the Democrats and Mr. Brown's campaign quickly responded by trying to make the conversation about something else.

Hours after winning their party primaries, Democrat Anthony G. Brown and Republican Larry Hogan exchanged the first salvos in November's race for governor. Hogan released an Internet ad calling the lieutenant governor "the most incompetent man in Maryland" and vowed to make the campaign a referendum on Gov. Martin O'Malley's tenure. Brown shot back that he would make the campaign a referendum on the "failed administration" of Maryland's last Republican governor, Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., in whose Cabinet Hogan served.

Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown claimed victory in the Democratic nomination for governor Tuesday after early returns suggested a landslide win. "It's about where we're going. It's about what next," Brown said in a victory speech as he led with three times as many votes as his closest competitor. He is positioned to become Maryland's first African-American chief executive. In the Republican race, former Ehrlich administration official Larry Hogan accepted the GOP nomination after Harford County Executive David R. Craig, conceded defeat.

Despite a spirited three-way contest, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown appears on his way to a convincing victory in the Maryland Democratic gubernatorial primary. On the Republican side, businessman and former state cabinet secretary Larry Hogan also emerged from a crowded field with a solid win. Though the primary appears to have drawn strikingly few voters to the polls - perhaps as a result of the unusually early election date - the result has set the state up for what promises to be a compelling general election contest during the next few months.

I was a little startled by something I saw Monday morning on Interstate 70, about halfway between Hagerstown and Frederick. As I approached the Appalachian Trail footbridge that passes over the highway, I looked up and saw what appeared to be a cardboard cutout of Neil Parrott, the conservative Western Maryland politician who made a name for himself with a campaign against same-sex marriage. He also tried to beat back the Dream Act, the law that grants immigrants in the country without documentation who graduate from Maryland high schools an in-state tuition discount at our colleges and universities.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan condemned a federal agency's decision Wednesday to cancel several trademarks of Washington's National Football League team on the basis that the nickname Redskins is offensive to native Americans. Hogan said he does not consider the team name a racial slur. Cmpaigning at a firefighters' parade in Ocean City, Hoagn issued a statement saying the decision on by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to revoke six team-held trademarks "should offend anyone concerned about constitutional limits on government power and free speech.
