Today's story on the problems of New York Rep. Anthony Weiner ("Emotional Weiner admits he sent suggestive photo," June 7) only appeared on page 7 in today's Sun. Yet if Representative Weiner were a Republican, this would be front-page news for two weeks. You might even print a special edition. Jerry Schmechel

Republican Larry Hogan could win this year's governor's race, but it's going to take more than he's shown voters so far in this campaign. That's the message of today's Sun Poll, which shows him trailing Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown by seven percentage points with just over three weeks to go before election day. The Sun's results are in line with two other recent polls, one conducted by the Washington Post, which showed Mr. Brown with a nine-point lead,...

During a recent pro-O'Malley rally in Annapolis, union boss "Josh" Williams, president of the Metropolitan Washington Council of AFL-CIO, said of the Maryland State House: "Are we going to let our piece of property be taken over?" The last time I checked, the unions didn't own the State House. The citizens of Maryland do. Through these words, Williams articulated the need for fundamental political change in Maryland more eloquently than any Republican ever could. Richard Cross, Baltimore

The nation's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization has listed U.S. Rep. Andy Harris -- a Baltimore County Republican -- among the nation's "most anti-equality members of Congress. " The Human Rights Campaign said Tuesday that Harris made its new "Hall of Shame" list of 19 legislators nationwide for having "gone out of his way to sponsor nearly every anti-LGBT bill introduced in the House" since he arrived there in 2010. The list, which also includes high-profile legislators such as Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN)

Dan Rodricks ' recent column extolling one Republican candidate for governor as moderate is nonsense ( "Republicans getting down to business," June 21). He noted how this guy was not going to get into the abortion issue. Yep, the same lie that was said by the current governor of North Carolina. The same thing on gay marriage because "the people have spoken. " That is not moderate, that is a reality because they lost that battle. I won't vote for any Republican, ever. As a party, they have been in lock step against every proposal put forth by President Barack Obama.

George Bush is not Ronald Reagan, and for this grievous lapse the conservative core in the Republican Party will never forgive him. Hardly had the election returns popped on the TV screens when the long knives were out, skewering the president for running a terrible campaign, slashing him for his alleged lack of compass and conviction, cutting deep in terms of personal contempt and rage.Of course, those gung-ho for the Gipper never liked George Bush. No matter his conversion to the anti-abortion crusade, no matter his espousal of supply-side theories he once branded as "voodoo economics," no matter his heroics in the Persian Gulf, he was always suspect.

An 18-year-old Baltimore County man is seeking the Republican nomination for comptroller. Brendan Madigan said he filed last week after considering a run for more than a year. Madigan said he could not "stand on the sidelines" while Maryland is run "into the ground." The Sparks resident said his campaign will focus on ending the "tax-and-spend mentality of those in Annapolis." Madigan served as the Baltimore County coordinator for Ron Paul's Campaign for Liberty and recently founded the blog GOP Resurgence.

Letter writer Gail Householder thinks Maryland should change from a Democratic state to a Republican one ( "Maryland Democrats care only about the rich," Feb. 6). She makes it seem like changing the flavor of an ice cream or something. No thank you, Gail; I believe the citizens of Maryland like it just the way it is. Why would we want to put politicians in office who want to dictate what a woman can do to her body, stop gay people from having equal rights or discriminate against immigrants from other countries?

An effort to expand telecommuting by federal workers ran afoul Thursday of a newly intensified Republican strategy to highlight government spending as an election-year issue. The House of Representatives rejected a telework measure, introduced by Rep. John Sarbanes of Maryland, that would require uniform rules for federal employees who work at sites other than their regular government offices, such as their homes. In addition to improving government productivity, proponents say, telecommuting can reduce traffic congestion in places like the Baltimore-Washington corridor and lessen air pollution by taking cars off the road.

Republicans are holding a unity meeting on Kent Island today. They hope to begin the general election campaign that could win the party a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in November. This -- Maryland's First District -- is perhaps the party's best chance in the nation to take a seat away from a Democratic incumbent. Doing that is a rare thing. In the last off-year election a Republican candidate bested a Democratic incumbent in exactly one contest. In the off-year election before that, the GOP won only two such races.

Thousands of miles on the road this summer and fall have afforded me the opportunity to observe a variety of political ads from across the spectrum. Herewith, observations from the heartland: I assume the relentless Democratic campaign to demonize the conservative Koch Brothers and their "Americans for Prosperity" organization has been poll tested, but I still don't get it. Driving negatives against someone (or something) that few people recognize violates a core tenet of political advertising.

Here's another thing: The attack ad on Larry Hogan that claims Anthony Brown's Republican challenger for governor wants to give a $300 million tax break to corporations at the expense of kindergartners - that's another stretch into the shady side by the Democrats, and for a couple of reasons. First of all, Hogan hasn't said any such thing yet, although, being a mainstream Republican businessman, he says he would cut Maryland's corporate tax rate, and we all know the story there: You can't be a Republican without saying you want to cut taxes.

A Republican state Senate candidate from Annapolis has admitted he falsely claimed to hold a college degree, saying he hasn't yet graduated. Don Quinn, who is running against longtime Democratic Sen. John C. Astle, said he's been taking online courses from Washington State University for about four years, but is 12 credits shy of earning his degree. Quinn's LinkedIn profile and an online biography he submitted to The Baltimore Sun claim he holds a degree from Washington State.

Of all the offices in the federal government, the job of attorney general may be one of the toughest as well the most thankless. Eric H. Holder, who announced last week that he is stepping down as the nation's top law enforcement official six years after becoming the first African-American ever to hold that position, was no stranger to the controversy that comes with the job nor to the endless stream of criticism directed at its occupants. His tenure was not perfect - the failure to crack down sufficiently on the financial speculators who brought our economy to ruin being perhaps the greatest shortcoming.

Republican Larry Hogan urged state and federal investigators Thursday to probe the possible connection between large political donations to the Democratic Governors Association and the award of Maryland state contracts to donors. Hogan, the GOP nominee for governor, also called on federal investigators to widen their audit of Maryland's health exchange to examine whether state tax dollars were misspent on the faulty online insurance marketplace. He convened a news conference Thursday to allege what he called a pattern of "suspicious" donations and suggest that his opponent, Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, might be the beneficiary.

In Maryland's newly redrawn 12th legislative district - which slithers from southwestern Baltimore County to West Columbia in Howard County - the race for the State House is pretty neatly divided along county lines. All four Republicans in the race live and work in the smaller Baltimore County portion of the district, while every Democratic candidate works in the larger Howard County side, and three live there. The district's geography has the underdog GOP candidates decrying what they perceive as gerrymandering to diminish their county's voice.

Can someone enlighten me as to why a traffic jam in New Jersey causes more press interest than the killing of a U.S. border agent in Mexico ("In Christie's denial, shades of Tricky Dick," Jan. 13)?

The war of words in the race for governor escalated Thursday as Republican Larry Hogan called his Democratic rival a liar and asked him to take down a series of "slanderous" advertisements. "I've been around politics for a long time. I know it's a rough and tumble business," Hogan told reporters at his Annapolis headquarters. "This is the most deceitful, most dishonest campaign that I have ever witnessed in my entire life. " Hogan said Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown's television spots mischaracterize his positions on abortion, gun control, tuition rates, taxes and pre-kindergarten.

Republican Larry Hogan released his first negative television ad of the campaign for governor Friday. It hits a point already hammered by Democrat Anthony Brown's opponents in the primary: Brown's role in the flubbed state health exchange. What the ad says: The 30-second TV spot opens with footage of Brown saying "I'm proud that Governor O'Malley has asked me to lead the O'Malley-Brown administration's efforts in health care. " It then transitions to footage of broadcast news coverage of troubles with Maryland's online health insurance marketplace.
