In backing Del. Steve Schuh this month over incumbent Laura Neuman in the GOP primary for Anne Arundel County Executive, former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. cited Mr. Schuh's attendance at national Republican conventions, his membership in a local Republican club, and his past volunteer activities as reasons to support him. He also faulted Ms. Neuman for having no involvement in intramural GOP politics. Curiously, Mr. Ehrlich's message did not mention the two candidates' actual records in office.

The Maryland Democratic Party turned Republican Larry Hogan's charge that the state is on the verge of bankruptcy against him Monday, pointing to the GOP gubernatorial nominee's 1994 bankruptcy filing over more than $1.5 million in debt. In a campaign news release, the Democrats also charged that has "a long history of mismanaging money," pointing to outstanding debt left over from his primary campaign. The report also criticizes the Maryland Republican Party for its track record of debt.

I miss Bob Ehrlich. Seriously, I do. I realize the former governor shares space with me here on the Baltimore Sun's opinion pages; in terms of sheer column inches, I suppose Mr. Ehrlich the Pundit is never that far away. But I'm talking about Mr. Ehrlich the Politician. A dozen years have passed since Mr. Ehrlich first ran for governor, in 2002. He beat then-Democratic Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend that year. Along with his running mate, Michael Steele, Mr. Ehrlich seemed to have revived the Maryland Republican Party almost overnight.

For the city's 32,000 registered Republicans -- and 18,000 registered independents who can vote in the GOP primary -- the mayoral race is a low-key contest between Victor Clark, a car salesman, Arthur Coffey, a retired budget analyst, and S. Scott McCown, a security consultant.The Sun endorses Mr. Clark, a one-time Democrat who 20 years ago became a GOP convert and is the second vice chairman of the Maryland Republican Party. His leadership offers the best hope to begin the process of building a genuine two-party system in this city.

The Maryland Republican Party faces its latest rebuilding effort after its chairman announced this week he is stepping down amid the organization's struggles to pay its bills and maintain relevance in an overwhelmingly Democratic state. Chairman James Pelura's announcement came about a year before the 2010 primary elections, when the GOP will select candidates to run against Democratic incumbents such as Gov. Martin O'Malley and Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski. Pelura will stay on through the party's convention Nov. 14. Pelura had repeatedly told executive board members that he did not plan to step down, even after receiving a vote of no confidence in July, so his resignation Monday night was "a little surprising," said Chris Cavey of Baltimore County, the party's first vice chairman.

— It wasn't just the wind whipping up the crowd of about 200 outside Calvert County Republican headquarters Friday afternoon. "In Maryland of all places, we know we can win because we have done it before," former Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele told GOP supporters. Now chairman of the Republican National Committee, Steele has spent the past six weeks on a 48-state "Fire Pelosi" tour, promoting Republican congressional candidates to turn out the Democratic House speaker. The odyssey arrives in Severna Park today for a rally with Andy Harris, the Republican state lawmaker attempting to unseat freshman Democratic Rep. Frank Kratovil in the 1st Congressional District.

Fourth in a series of profiles of candidates for governor. Charles Lollar was at it again last week, the only Republican on stage with the three Democrats running for governor, wooing a crowd largely unable to cast a vote in the fast-approaching GOP primary. His Republican rivals skipped the event at a Silver Spring church, but as he has done throughout the campaign, Lollar focused on charming voters in a Democratic stronghold. The ordained preacher and former tea party activist spreads a spirited message about rising above partisanship.

As I noted last week , it has become more apparent that Maryland's Democratic leaders are furiously trying to move past the debacle that has been the rollout of Maryland's health care exchange.  After publicly heeding calls for hearings, leaders in both the State Senate and House of Delegates are pushing off any real investigation until after the June primary. To those willing to see it, this is simply cover for the favorite candidate of the state's Democrat oligarchs, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown.

Maryland Republicans will consider what insiders are calling "the Don Dwyer Resolution" that encourages elected officials to resign if convicted of a crime that carries jail time. The proposal, which informally references Anne Arundel County Del. Don Dwyer and his 60-day sentence for alcohol-related offenses, is one of four resolutions submitted for the party's rank-and-file to consider as the Maryland GOP convenes in Annapolis for its fall convention this weekend. Earlier drafts of the resolution said the Maryland Republican Party would not support or endorse candidates who had served time in jail, but the revised version under consideration Friday night only applied elected officials incarcerated during their time in office.

Your article about the inept Maryland Republican Party's struggles just scratches the surface (" GOP struggles to overcome adversity, Aug. 23). As an independent, non-ideological voter, I am nonpartisan in this affair, but you were very kind in your treatment of the individuals named. You really could have taken the Republicans to task for their ineptness. I do not think our delegation from Harford County has contributed a thing to those of us that live here. Yet, you will see them at any photo opportunity available.

PHILADELPHIA - Maryland Gov. Parris N. Glendening kicked off the official Democratic response to the Republican National Convention here yesterday, criticizing GOP presidential candidate George W. Bush's record on gun control and the environment. Riding on a bus called the "Rolling Donkey," Glendening began what he expects to be a national tour on behalf of the expected Democratic presidential nominee, Vice President Al Gore. From a sheet metal workers union hall about three miles south of the convention site, Glendening said that Texas has slipped in its national rankings on pollution control under Bush.

The Maryland Republican Party and the state elections board reached an agreement Friday that requires the strapped GOP to repay at least $2,000 a month to Michael S. Steele's campaign account, which state officials contend made an improper contribution. The parties had planned to finalize an agreement last week, but Jared DeMarinis, director of campaign finance at the State Board of Elections, said 11th-hour revisions proposed by the party were "unacceptable." Lawyers for both sides spent the past week in negotiations.

In a democracy, it is always important to get involved in the process. Many individuals I talk with say that they do not like it when people complain about government, but then they do not even vote. Contrary to popular belief, each vote does matter, and decisions are made by those who show up. That is why I applaud the Maryland Republican Party for taking into consideration the idea of opening its primary elections to independent voters. This has been an issue I have been pressing for years.

A generational shift within the Maryland Republican Party picked up steam Tuesday as a veteran GOP senator called an end to her legislative career and a conservative favorite launched an audacious challenge to an incumbent Democratic congressman. State Sen. Nancy Jacobs, one of Maryland's longest-serving Republican lawmakers, said she will not seek re-election in 2014 — adding to the attrition of the GOP's small band of senators in Annapolis. Jacobs, 61, who represents Harford and Cecil counties, said she wants to spend more time with her husband, Bruce, and her family.
