Pardon us if we are not completely reassured by officials' insistence that glitches recently discovered in the Connecticut Affordable Care Act health insurance exchange that Maryland is in the process of adapting will be fixed well before the site goes live here in November. To learn that a coding error there caused inaccurate bills, unpaid subsidies, mistaken Medicaid enrollments or outright dropped coverage for more than 5,000 people is not encouraging - particularly since officials there initially misdiagnosed the problem as an isolated incident before backtracking this month to acknowledge a problem with their software.

While I am pleased that gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan submitted a letter to the Baltimore Sun affirming his support for access to birth control, it did not go far enough to answer how he feels about a woman's right to choose ( "Hogan: Hobby Lobby case a manufactured political issue in Md. governor's race," July 8). I am writing to once again to ask that he clarify his stance on abortion and women's reproductive health. Like Mr. Hogan, I believe it is time to "clear the air and cut through the political rhetoric.

Maryland election officials have determined Republican candidate for governor Larry Hogan broke no laws in converting his Change Maryland advocacy organization into a campaign operation. But in a memo released Thursday, officials pointed out that a loophole permits corporations such as Change Maryland to test the water on behalf of candidates without disclosing donors or spending, as the candidates themselves must do. The ruling came after two of Hogan's rivals in last month's Republican primary filed complaints with the State Board of Elections in May. Jared DeMarinis, director of candidacy and campaign finance for the board, wrote in the memo that he was dropping the complaints.

Republican Larry Hogan will be the first candidate in two decades to mount a statewide general election bid using taxpayer donations. Hogan's campaign said Wednesday that it will accept public financing, an unusual move that reflects the GOP's uphill political fight against Maryland's better-funded and more powerful Democratic Party. The decision will give Hogan's camp a $2.6 million check from state coffers to pay for his race against Democrat Anthony G. Brown, who has proved himself a formidable fundraiser by collecting more than $12 million for the primary election alone.

Republican Larry Hogan will pay for his bid for governor with public financing, the first candidate to mount a state-wide general election bid on taxpayer dollars in two decades.  Hogan's campaign will receive a $2.6 million within the next few weeks to finance his race against Democrat Anthony G. Brown, who has proved himself a formidable fundraiser by collecting more than $12 million for the primary election alone.  "The Democratic Party...

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.

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.

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.

Maryland Republicans came together Thursday night to unite behind Larry Hogan's candidacy for governor as his defeated primary foes vowed at a unity rally to work for his election in November. Harford County Executive David R. Craig, Charles County business executive Charles Lollar and Del. Ron George -- the second through fourth-place finisher's in Tuesday's count -- shared a stage with a beaming Hogan at the Severna Park gathering of several hundred cheering Republicans. Hogan praised each of his defeated rivals and said each was on board with his general election campaign.

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.
