Maryland Republicans will provide clues to how they plan to mend a divided and demoralized party when they meet Saturday to choose their leader for the next four years. Whoever is elected to chair the state party can look forward to a season of change: Gov. Martin O'Malley and the Democrat-controlled General Assembly will be redrawing legislative and congressional districts, term limits mean the next gubernatorial race will be for an open seat and, for the first time since 1998, former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. is unlikely to be the party's nominee for governor.

After the sound drubbing Maryland Republicans received at the ballot box this month, a faction in the state GOP is calling for the resignation of state party Chairman Alex Mooney. The effort follows a race in which the state party not only saw most of its candidates go down to lopsided defeats but one in which the ballot questions most Republicans opposed were all approved. Whether Mooney can be forced out in the middle of his four-year term is doubtful, but GOP activists on both sides agree that unhappiness with his performance is likely to lead to a contentious Republican state convention Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 in Howard County.

A longtime top aide and confidant to Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett who has considered running for his boss' seat in 2012 abruptly resigned, the congressman confirmed Thursday, fueling speculation that the 10-term incumbent will not seek another term.

If they were still breaking down the decorations at 3:30 a.m., you know folks stayed late at this year's "Center Stage Presents." In other words, the party was a smash. "It was our best [fund-raiser] ever," exclaims Center Stage board member Terry Morgenthaler, "for several reasons." Reason No. 1: Terry says party chairs Phil and Denise Andrews did a bang-up job, helping to bring several new faces to the annual shindig. Faces with names attached like Mark and Mia Pesinis Jensen, Robert Bowie, Ann Brobst and Larry Yumkas.

As the GOP approaches its winter meeting Saturday, it appears that this patient has taken a turn for the worse, and loved ones are in denial. Candidates for the party offices, many of them my friends, have offered little but the same old trite ideas that have gotten us to the point of soon being totally irrelevant. Without an honest assessment of the election results, registration and demographic trends, and an appropriate response, how can those newly elected party leaders, or those who elected them, expect a different result?

WASHINGTON - Maryland Republican leaders endorsed yesterday Michael S. Steele's bid to become the party's next national chairman and called him well-positioned to get the job. The former Maryland lieutenant governor appeared on the Fox News Channel on Thursday night to announce his candidacy. Steele worked as a Fox commentator during the 2008 campaign. Steele first expressed interest in becoming the Republican Party's top official two years ago, after losing a U.S. Senate race in Maryland, but President George W. Bush gave the job to Florida Sen. Mel Martinez.
