The Democratic Governors Association has put $750,000 into an advertising campaign questioning Republican nominee Larry Hogan's commitment to education. The national group works to elect Democrats, but the ad released this past week never mentions the party's nominee in Maryland, Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown. Instead, the advertisement focuses on Hogan's position that the state cannot afford an expanded prekindergarten program, which is the signature issue of Brown's campaign. "Around here, we need a governor who understands that education makes Maryland work for middle-class families, but instead of investing in our kids, Larry Hogan says that we should give corporations $300 million more a year in tax breaks," the ad says.

The two men vying to be Maryland's next governor brought their stump speeches to a convention of municipal leaders in Annapolis on Friday, each promising they would offer local officials a better way forward than their opponent. Republican Larry Hogan told the group of mayors and local elected officials that troubles in their jurisdictions stem from the economic policies of the two-term O'Malley-Brown administration. "The mismanagement of our state over the past eight years has had a real impact on each and every one of you," Hogan said at the Maryland Municipal League.

Republican Larry Hogan filed a formal elections complaint against Anthony G. Brown last week, accusing his Democratic opponent of illegally coordinating with a political action committee in the race for governor. Hogan alleges that Brown's campaign broke state election laws by sharing fundraising consultants with a super PAC Hogan said was created to aid Brown's bid. In the Hogan's complaint, his campaign alleged said that sharing fundraising - and just political - consultants constitutes coordination between the two operations.

Those who thought that Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown would seek to ignore the fact that he faces competition in November's general election appear to be wrong. But to say that he is engaging with Republican nominee Larry Hogan isn't exactly right either. Rather, the Democrat and presumed front-runner for governor has been busily criticizing a version of Mr. Hogan of his own invention while skating away from substantive debate about any of the actual issues in the race. It may be smart politics, but it's depressing democracy.

Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown continued his attempt to draw contrast between himself and Republican nominee Larry Hogan Tuesday, releasing a television ad that highlights Brown's proposal to gradually expand the state's pre-kindergarten program to include half-day classes for youngsters. The 30-second spot also echoes a message Brown deployed against a Democratic rival in primary the race for governor: that his opponent prioritizes reducing the corporate tax rate over paying for more Maryland 4-year-olds to attend a half-day pre-kindergarten program.

Democrat Anthony G. Brown and Republican Larry Hogan have agreed to a second televised debate in the race for Maryland governor.  The Oct. 13 event, co-hosted by three Washington-area media organizations, will be less than a week after the pair face off in a Baltimore-area debate. Campaigns for Brown, the lieutenant governor, and Hogan, an Annapolis businessman, have publicly sparred over whether there will be enough public debates before the Nov. 4 election. Aides in the candidates' camps say the campaigns are negotiating over a possible third radio debate.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan jumped out to a massive - but almost certainly temporary - lead in cash in hand over Democratic rival Anthony G. Brown, the Hogan campaign reported Tuesday night. Hogan's better than 3-1 advantage - $2.4 million to Brown's $760,000 - was based largely on a July 9 lump sum payment of $2.6 million from the state's public financing fund after the June 24 primary. However, Hogan's fund-raising for his general election campaign is essentially frozen, while Brown can continue to raise money through the Nov. 4 election.

The news about Maryland's rather disastrous economy is not at all surprising ( "Maryland sees one of nation's largest job declines in July," Aug. 18). For almost eight years, Gov. Martin O'Malley and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown have orchestrated the devastation of the Maryland private sector including the loss of the bulk of our Fortune 500 companies and thousands of small businesses, the Draconian increases in state taxes and fees while average personal income has significantly decreased, the dramatically expanded regulation of commercial activities by incompetent bureaucrats who administer programs that mostly are counterproductive and/or senseless, the departure from Maryland of thousands of high-income citizens seeking employment and entrepreneurial opportunities widely available elsewhere, and a growing disconnect between education and employment.

If the first political ad for the general election is any indication, the battle for the governor's mansion may take a negative tone, some political observers say. Democrat Anthony G. Brown released a 30-second TV spot Friday that takes a swipe at his opponent's economic policies, saying Republican Larry Hogan would "take Maryland families backwards" if elected governor. Brown has put at least $23,000 toward airing the ad in the Baltimore market this weekend, according to reports filed with regulatory agencies.

Maryland Republicans released a party-sponsored poll Friday that they say shows GOP gubernatorial nominee Larry Hogan in a virtual tie with Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown. The poll, conducted by XXXXXXXXXXXX, shows Brown clinging to a XX-XX lead in race to succeed term-limited Gov. Martin O'Malley in the Nov. 4 election.    Strong early poll numbers are important to Hogan if he hopes to attract outside money from the Republican Governors Association and outside conservative groups for a race that was not expected to be competitive in strongly Democratic Maryland.
