Compared with the most recent Annapolis mayoral contest in 2001 - when seven candidates vied in two primaries and and an incumbent mayor was knocked off - this year's race looks downright ordinary. The Democratic incumbent, a Republican challenger and an independent will appear on the ballot in November. There are no intraparty races, which means the primary Sept. 20 will not alter the mayoral field, although, under the city election law, the names of the candidates from the two major parties will appear on the primary ballots.

WITH SEN. Paula C. Hollinger facing no opposition in the 11th Legislative District of northwest Baltimore County, the contest is in the delegates' race. The question is: Can Republicans break the Democratic lock on power in the district, which includes such county population centers as Reisterstown and Owings Mills?The GOP candidates with the best chance to win are Christian Cavey, 43, an insurance executive, and Virginia G. Schuster, 70, a real estate agent. If we had to choose between the two, our favorite would be the spunky Mrs. Schuster, whose motto is "been there, done it."

Mitt Romney won Wednesday night's debate with President Barack Obama. That might be a substantial help to him in the presidential race - if enough Americans managed to stay awake through the whole thing. This first encounter between the Republican Mr. Romney and the Democrat Mr. Obama in a race framed by partisans as an epochal clash between two radically different visions for America produced little passion from either candidate. There were no memorable moments that are likely to help define this race; no "there you go again," no George W. Bush glancing at his watch, no Al Gore sighing.

The debates, starting Wednesday night, are Mitt Romney's last chance to turn around his campaign. He must communicate what he has failed to convey so far: his vision to give Americans a better life and deal with tough challenges, like the financial meltdown and the Arab Spring, that are unforeseeable when presidents are chosen. Mr. Romney made his fortune in private equity. To most Americans, the benefits of such activities are much more difficult to grasp than the work of, say, Steve Jobs.

The somnolent campaign in Maryland's most competitive congressional race began showing signs of life Friday as Republican challenger Andy Harris and Democratic Rep. Frank Kratovil started maneuvering over a possible series of debates. Harris got things going by proposing joint appearances with Kratovil to "talk about fixing Americans' tax burden so we can get our economy moving again and start creating jobs. " He also demanded that the congressman take down an ad that has been criticized as misleading voters about the Republican's position on taxes.

Councilman T. Bryan McIntire, who has represented the northern expanses of Baltimore County for 16 years and would like one more term, acknowledges facing the toughest challenge of his career. Five fellow Republicans are running against him in the County Council primary Sept. 14, and for the first time since 1994, the outcome of the primary won't mean the end of the campaign for the seat. Democrat Ben Sutley will oppose the Republican nominee in the general election. "They all realize that as I have stated, I will not run again after this term," said McIntire, 80, a retired attorney.

Republican candidate Andy Harris has cut into Democratic Rep. Frank Kratovil's financial advantage in the most closely watched congressional contest in Maryland, new financial disclosure reports show. The Democratic incumbent has more money in the bank — $1,034,000 as of March 30, to Harris' $703,000. But the Republican raised more than Kratovil during the first three months of the year, collecting $324,000 to the freshman Democrat's $247,000, to narrow the gap. Federal Election Commission records show both men benefiting from the high-profile character of their potential rematch.

WASHINGTON - In a lucrative 90-minute visit to a St. Louis convention center, President Bush schmoozed with Republican donors last night and raked in $2.8 million for his re-election effort, expanding his fund-raising dominance over Democratic rivals. The Bush-Cheney '04 team will officially release its new fund-raising figures this week. But campaign aides say privately that the largesse, even before last night's fund-raiser, exceeds $120 million. That total easily shatters the record for cash raised in a presidential primary season, set by Bush in 2000.
