Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan on Friday challenged Democratic rival Anthony Brown to dump a bucket of ice water over his head as part of a fund-raising campaign for medical research. Brown, notified of the challenge by a Baltimore Sun reporter, promptly accepted. Hogan and running mate Boyd Rutherford issued the challenge to take part in the "ALS Ice Bucket Challenge" while in Ocean City for the annual convention of the Maryland Association of Counties. Following the protocol for the challenge, they posted video of their cold dousing on the Internet.

If Republican Larry Hogan wants to be Maryland's next governor, he needs to drive home his message of cutting taxes and creating jobs. And he needs to appear pleasant. For his part, Democrat Anthony G. Brown needs to avoid unforced errors that could squander his advantages. And he can't underestimate his opponent. This is among the advice offered by political pundits and campaign veterans, many of whom expect a lively race for governor when the campaign for the Nov. 4 election moves into higher gear in the coming weeks.

Discussing the weather might once have been an alternative to arguing about politics, but not in Maryland in 2014. Before the front that brought torrential rains to Maryland Tuesday had even passed, it became the basis for an attack by Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan on Democratic rival Anthony G. Brown. Precipitation had already been at the center of this year's campaign as a result of Republican opposition to the storm water cleanup fees they have dubbed "the rain tax. " On Tuesday evening, after a day that brought flash flooding around the state and broke rainfall records at BWI, the Hogan campaign released a statement charging that the downpour underscored the O'Malley-Brown administration's failure to protect the Chesapeake Bay from " catastrophic releases of polluted sediment from the long-neglected control reservoirs, or ponds, above the Conowingo Dam. " Hogan was referring to a long-running controversy over how much hard the buildup of decades of sediment behind the dam on the Susquehanna River poses to the bay. Hogan considers it the No. 1 threat to the bay -- a view not shared by the Army Corps of Engineers and many environmentalists.

The two men vying to become Maryland's next governor have agreed to an hourlong televised debate in early October, reaching a deal after more than a month of uncertainty about when — and whether — the pair would face off. Democrat Anthony G. Brown and Republican Larry Hogan said Wednesday they have agreed to an Oct. 7 debate hosted by The Baltimore Sun and WJZ-TV, which will be taped in the morning and aired statewide that night. Behind the scenes, the campaigns are still wrangling over details of a television debate in the Washington region and a radio debate.

Last week, the Maryland Democratic Party took a swipe at Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan for his decision to use public campaign financing during the primary and general elections, noting in a news release that Mr. Hogan, "who often claims to be the only candidate who will protect tax dollars, received over $320,000 in taxpayer funds for the Republican primary and nearly $2.6 million for the general election. " But a story today in the Washington Post about the free flow of campaign contributions from the owner of one of Maryland's casino licenses to the coffers of the Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, and his running mate, Howard County Executive Ken Ulman, offers a reminder of just how wise an investment public campaign financing is. The Democratic party is trying to make hay out of the idea that some of those taxpayer funds (donated willingly, incidentally, through a check-off box on state income tax returns)

Republican gubernatorial canidate refused a request Monday that he disavow Frederick County sheriff Charles Jenkins, just as Hogan distanced himself from a far right-wing GOP candidate for the Anne Arundel County Council. CASA de Maryland called on Hogan to withdraw his support from Jenkins, a Republican seeking re-election, after the sheriff took a trip to the U.S. border with Mexico financed by an organization that strongly advocates for tougher enforcement of immigration laws.

As Gov. Martin O'Malley has extended a welcoming hand to immigrant children fleeing Central America, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Anthony G. Brown and Republican rival Larry Hogan have staked out starkly different positions on whether he is doing the right thing. Brown, O'Malley's lieutenant governor, is backing the governor's actions in joining with religious leaders to help federal efforts to resettle unaccompanied minors while they await immigration hearings. Hogan opposes O'Malley's position.

Republican gubernatorial nominee Larry Hogan blamed Democratic rival Anthony G. Brown for Baltimore's "food deserts" Thursday, suggesting that the O'Malley-Brown administration's tax policies led the the recent demise of the Stop Shop Save grocery chain. In a statement released by the campaign, Hogan minimized the impact of Thursday's opening of a new, 67,000-foot ShopRite store in Howard Park. “ShopRite expanding in Baltimore is a good thing, but I would have hoped this major corporation would have chosen to locate in one of Baltimore City's food deserts where unemployment and poverty are far higher than the state average," Hogan said.

A prominent Democrat lawmaker said Thursday he would work to close what he called "the Hogan loophole," which he said allowed Republican Larry Hogan "to pocket" public money during Hogan's campaign for governor. Economic Matters Committee chairman Del. Dereck Davis said he would seek stiffer rules for politicians who accept public financing, as Hogan as done. Among those provisions: forbidding spending public money in a way that improves a candidate's financial fortunes. Hogan's campaign, meanwhile, called the issue "absurd.

The recent attack on Mike Anthony Peroutka by the political establishment as well as The Baltimore Sun and its subsidiary publications is nothing less than character assassination in an attempt to kill his candidacy for Anne Arundel County Council ( "Hogan, GOP concerned about Arundel candidate's ties to secessionist group," July 25). Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan's disavowal of Mr. Peroutka incorrectly implies that he had avowed him to start with. Mr. Hogan's campaign manager's statement, "Those views have never been part of the Republican Party...
