When she arrived for her senior aerobics class at the Randallstown Community Center the other morning, Mrs. Willie Tombs was surprised to bump into Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski. Tombs got a kiss and hug from the Democratic veteran, along with a gentle reminder that "we're doing early voting now. Can we count on you to turn out?" The answer was yes. After the senator moved on, the Pikesville resident said she's been personally familiar with Mikulski "for years. I knew her when she was a social worker" in East Baltimore in the 1960s.

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.

Del. Patrick N. Hogan, a Frederick County Republican, announced Tuesday that he will not seek a third term in the House of Delegates in next year's election. Hogan, 34, was only 23 when he first won a House seat in 2002, representing the city of Frederick and parts of the county. He lost his bid for re-election in 2006 but won back a seat in 2010. In his announcement, Hogan said he "never intended to make a career out of elected service. " Hogan said that by forgoing a re-election campaign he can focus on doing his job as a legislator for the remaining year of his term.

At a time when the Republican Party needs a heavy dose of compromise to bring functionality back to government, one of its most admirable models of goodwill and working across the aisle has departed with the death at 88 last week of Howard Henry Baker Jr. of Tennessee. The state's first elected GOP senator, former Senate majority leader, Reagan White House chief of staff and presidential aspirant was a gentle throwback to the brand of moderate conservatism that got things done without breaking the china.

With much of the General Assembly in flux in the run-up to the 2014 election, Baltimore County's 11th District is what passes for an oasis of stability. Sen. Robert A. Zirkin, Del. Dan K. Morhaim and Del. Dana Stein -- all Democrats -- announced yesterday that they would run for re-election as a slate. That leaves one likely vacancy in the delegation because Del. Jon Cardin is expected to seek the Democratic nomination for attorney general. Zirkin, Morhaim and Stein also ran as a team in 2010.

Sen. Edward R. Reilly, the No. 2 Republican in the Senate, announced Tuesday that he will seek re-election in his Anne Arundel County district. Reilly, 63, is a former Anne Arundel County councilman who was appointed to the 33rd District Senate seat in 2009 and elected in 2010. He is a consistent conservative whose pro-life views led him to cast one of two Republican votes in favor of repeal of the death penalty. A Crofton resident, Reilly also holds a jobs as a Nationwide Insurance representative.

Del. Rudolph C. Cane, the first and so far only African-American to represent an Eastern Shore district in the General Assembly, has dropped his bid for re-election. Cane, 79, withdrew his candidacy for the Democratic nomination in his district Wednesday, leaving Wicomico County Councilwoman Sheree Sample-Hughes as the only candidate of either party. The four-term Democrat was first elected to the House in 1998 -- ending a long struggle for an African-American seat on the Shore.

For the past year, Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski has been running a very successful, though unannounced, campaign for re-election in 2010. She's traveled the state, raised money, hired a campaign manager and stashed away more than $2 million in campaign cash. That's not a huge pile of money, but it's enough for now - with no major opponent in sight and no apparent prospect that one will materialize. Independent analysts and strategists in both parties have consistently rated Mikulski a safe bet for re-election, increasingly rare for a Democratic incumbent this year.

Baltimore County State's Attorney Scott D. Shellenberger filed this week to run for reelection as the county's top prosecutor in 2014. Shellenberger, 54, a Democrat, was elected in 2006, following longtime county State's Attorney Sandra A. O'Connor, a Republican. He won a contested re-election in 2010. This past year, he was among the most vocal advocates in an unsuccessful effort to fight repeal of the state's death penalty. Shellenberger was hired in the county in 1982, serving as a law clerk and prosecutor before joining the law firm of Peter G. Angelos for 13 years.

Four years ago, Baltimore defense attorney Gregg L. Bernstein emerged from a private practice to run an aggressive campaign targeting a longtime chief prosecutor who Bernstein said had grown complacent. Now, as he makes his first re-election bid for Baltimore state's attorney, Bernstein is the one facing pointed attacks in the Democratic primary campaign - this time from a former assistant who says his leadership has already failed. Marilyn J. Mosby, a politically connected insurance company attorney, has seized on the city's persistently high homicide rate and pointed to prominent crimes to criticize Bernstein's approach to the job. The incumbent, meanwhile, has run an understated campaign that emphasizes changes he has made to the office.

In response to Michael Dresser 's May 28th article that describes Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown's campaign treasury as having over $4 million cash on hand ( "Brown raises $1.2 million in 6 weeks," May 28), it is worth pointing out that some of this money goes to the campaign signs that end up on vacant houses and blighted structures throughout the city. In my district, major culprits include the Brown/Ulman ticket, Doc Cheatham, and the ubiquitous Conaways. But no ticket appears on more vacant buildings than the signs encouraging the re-election of Joan Carter Conway, Maggie McIntosh, Curt Anderson and Mary Washington.

Baltimore State's Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein got to work on his re-election campaign in a low-key way Saturday, knocking on the doors of likely voters in Northwest Baltimore and asking for their support. It was one of the first campaign activities Bernstein has organized this year, and while he confirmed last summer that he intended to run again, he has been reluctant to talk about the political side of his job. On each doorstep he made no big promises about the future but pointed to his record in office.

President Barack Obama told House Democratic lawmakers assembled Friday on Maryland's Eastern Shore that Congress must focus on increasing the federal minimum wage and changing immigration laws ahead of a midterm election that he acknowledged could be difficult for his party. In a 20-minute pep talk that echoed themes he sounded during his recent State of the Union address, Obama told lawmakers in Cambridge attending an annual retreat that he needs their help on those twin goals, despite his recent emphasis on working around Capitol Hill on other issues.

The election for Laurel council members is over and the residents realized who was right for the positions. The re-election of all current council members shows that the residents respect their past performance. They have proven that they can run a city by looking at all the facts first before spending our tax money. Team Laurel conducted themselves during the campaign with honor, dignity and class, taking the high road. They are a great example for young citizens to follow. I am amazed at how quickly the new shopping center is coming along and look forward to shopping locally again.

As he prepares for a re-election fight this fall, Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold finds himself beset with a $300,000 sexual harassment, discrimination and workplace retaliation lawsuit from a former employee. This is not the first time the unmarried 67-year-old Leopold has been accused of inappropriate conduct. Last year, he was accused of sexually harassing a state employee at the county headquarters, and an anonymous 911 caller also reported possible sexual activity in what turned out to be Leopold's government-issued car. He was not charged with a crime in either case.

Every American president has to weather occasional political gaffes. Whether their own or those committed by associates, they cause temporary embarrassment or pain but are ultimately survivable. Loose lips may sink ships, as was often said in warning during World War II, but they're seldom fatal in the normal course of governing. Major mistakes, however, if they linger or are repeated, can be the undoing of a presidency. The excesses of the Vietnam War that drove Lyndon Johnson to the sidelines in 1968, and Watergate, which led to Richard Nixon's resignation in 1974, have had lasting political consequences.
