It's a safe bet that Baltimore County Executive Dennis Rasmussen did not get a good night's sleep after he read the election returns on Tuesday evening. It is not so much that voters unseated two incumbent county councilmen; rather, it was the nature of those votes -- which were entirely anti-establishment in sentiment -- and the issues they represent which leave the executive in a somewhat exposed position.In the 7th District -- which is critical in the general election -- Dale Volz, one of Rasmussen's closest allies, was wiped out by a leader of the property tax movement, Don Mason.

The poll shows Romney with 45 percent of the vote, Santorum with 28 percent, Newt Gingrich at 12 percent and Ron Paul at 7 percent. The primary is on Tuesday.

Baltimore County is at a precarious juncture, with its fiscal future up for grabs and the war of images in full swing. Across the political landscape -- from Dundalk to Owings Mills -- Republican challenger Roger Hayden accuses County Executive Dennis Rasmussen of setting a prodigal example. Indeed, some of Hayden's politicking hinges on accusations that the incumbent has sold taxpayers down the river for a fancy new office and a Lincoln Town Car.This kind of stuff is nonsense, but it plays well in a year in which incumbents are being routinely knocked off by voter cynicism and frustration.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Storm Davis is listed as "day to day" after leaving Friday night's game with an inflammation in the arch of his left foot.If Davis is unable to take his regular turn Wednesday, Dennis Rasmussen will move up a day and take his place. That would put the veteran left-hander in position to assume Davis' spot in the rotation if necessary.Davis, who described himself as "sore" yesterday, has had trouble with his foot all spring, but Friday night was the first time he had to curtail activity.

Rasmussen wore the leader's yellow jersey and had won the 16th stage when he was ejected for allegedly lying about his whereabouts to avoid doping tests.

Apparently my good friend, Fred Rasmussen , who wrote an interesting piece about passenger ship founderings over the past century ("Some show bravery, others cowardice," Feb. 26) was not aware of one of the most outstanding rescues in history. Coincidentally, the master in charge was a ship captain from Baltimore. The rescue has been recorded on a painting entitled "And Every Soul Was Saved. " An engraving of that painting is included as the frontispiece of a book on America's merchant marine, printed in Baltimore in 1915, with the description reading as follows: "The engraving opposite, taken from a famous painting by Thomas M. Hemy, commemorates one of the most graphic rescues at sea ever recorded in the history of maritime events.

Caution: Billboards are on the move. Box trucks outfitted with billboards on three sides surfaced in the Baltimore area about a year ago when drivers began carting the advertising through downtown streets and the suburbs. The 6-foot-high messages change frequently, often are accompanied by blaring music and can be designed for interaction - one truck was built as a furnished dorm room and allowed visitors to lounge in the back when it was parked at a local university. Mobile billboards are helping to make transit advertising one of the industry's fastest growing segments.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark --Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen said yesterday that attempts by European companies in the Middle East to disassociate themselves from Denmark or Danish products were "disgraceful." At the same time, Rasmussen tried to shield the Bush administration and some of Denmark's partners in NATO from accusations that they had been tardy and overcautious in coming to Denmark's defense in the crisis. He attributed the current furor more to attempts by Iran and Syria to cause diversions in the Middle East than to a few satirical cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad in a Danish newspaper.

Former Baltimore County Executive Dennis F. Rasmussen is expected to announce today his candidacy for U.S. Senate as a Democrat, saying voters want a moderate alternative to a crowded field of left-leaning primary contenders. "I'm looking to reach out to both sides of the aisle. People want you to govern these days," Rasmussen, a State House lobbyist who left public office in 1990, said in an interview yesterday. He has scheduled a kickoff speech tonight in White Marsh and has designed a campaign handbill bearing the slogan "Just Right for Maryland," a reference to the side of the Democratic spectrum from which he is launching his bid. Rasmussen joins a field dominated by Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin, a Democrat from Baltimore County, and Kweisi Mfume, a former congressman and past president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
