One in a series of profiles of Maryland delegates to the Republican National Convention Ask Brenda Butscher to compare this year's Republican convention to the first one she attended, in 1972, and her answer is unexpected. "One thing is I haven't met with an ice pick since I've been here," the 72-year-old Garrett County woman says with a smile. Butscher, who has attended nine national political conventions — more than anyone else in Maryland's delegation — found herself caught up in the Vietnam War protests that accompanied the 1972 nomination of Richard M. Nixon in Miami Beach.

March has been a rough month for Maryland Republicans. In Annapolis, they watched helplessly as Democrats worked their way through an ambitious ideological wish list that includes new taxes and spending, death penalty repeal, Second Amendment limitations, wind power subsidies, and other proposals anathema to Republicans. Seven of 12 GOP senators - apparent victims of "Stockholm syndrome" - - supported Gov. Martin O'Malley's budget, which includes $1 billion in new spending. And just as state Democrats rammed through an 87 percent hike in state gas taxes, David Ferguson, executive director of the Maryland Republican Party, canceled a planned training session for candidates to embark on a quixotic national "tour" to preach the evils of a possible Martin O'Malley presidency.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Maryland's delegation to the Republican National Convention doesn't include any headline speakers, but there is a nationally recognized figure within its ranks: Anti-tax advocate Grover Norquist. Norquist, the founder of Americans for Tax Reform, is staying at the same Tampa hotel as the 37 delegates, 34 alternates and party guests this week. Norquist, who lives in Washington, reached out to Maryland Republican leaders months ago to request four rooms from their hotel block.

- For three days, they hobnobbed with Republican stars, were pursued by reporters, cast ballots for their party's presidential nominee and generally had a taste of life at the center of the political universe. Today, Maryland's delegation to the Republican National Convention returns home to a state where Mitt Romney is given little chance of carrying in November and a slate of congressional candidates is being heavily outspent in every district but one. In other words, state Republicans come back to reality.

SOLOMONS — A conservative activist running an insurgent candidacy against the Maryland Republican establishment seized the post of national committeewoman at the state GOP convention Saturday, beating longtime party stalwart Audrey E. Scott. The victory by Nicolee Ambrose of Baltimore represents a generational changing of the guard for Maryland Republicans.

— As Republicans shift their sights to unseating President Barack Obama, national party Chairman Michael S. Steele will announce this evening whether he plans to run for another term at the party's helm. Steele's intentions remained a mystery Sunday afternoon. "He has not tipped his hand to anybody that I know of," said Louis Pope, a Republican National Committee member from Maryland. "I'd say I'm pretty close in his inner circle. " Pope says he has "nothing but admiration" for Steele, a former Maryland lieutenant governor and U.S. Senate candidate in 2006, given the Republican Party's successful midterm elections.

He's a rookie in Congress, but Rep. Andy Harris is positioned to become a GOP heavyweight in Maryland. As delegates from across the country converge at the Republican National Convention this week to nominate Mitt Romney for president, the first-term lawmaker from Cockeysville is the state's highest-ranking elected official to attend. And while his role will be limited - he is not a delegate - his efforts at getting fellow state Republicans elected in November have been extensive.

Pope named a reason that was misleading in a Tuesday article in the Howard County edition of The Sun.
