The chair of the Maryland Republican Party admits he erred by not disavowing his congressional campaign before he started working part-time for Rep. Roscoe Bartlett in June. Alex Mooney began raising money last year for a 2012 bid for Maryland's Sixth District seat, which Bartlett currently holds. After Bartlett announced he was running again - he is a 10-term incumbent in the Western Maryland district - Mooney filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission indicating that he was holding onto the funds he had raised for a 2014 campaign.

Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett began his unsuccessful campaign for another term with an unusual meeting: a one-on-one chat over dinner with his Democratic rival. Bartlett and his challenger, John Delaney, met alone for two hours in a Frederick restaurant after the April primary to talk about politics, family and their childhoods. The secret meeting set the tone for a race that remained courteous despite the hyper-partisanship playing out just down the road in the nation's capital. Bartlett, a 20-year incumbent, found himself in a battleground district when state lawmakers redrew its boundaries last year.

"Take a sharp right' right on the money I found your article "To get to Carroll, take a sharp right" right on the money. In fact, the article reads like a David Letterman top ten list of reasons to stay out of Carroll County.

Things haven't gone quite according to plan in the newly redrawn 6th Congressional District. Maryland's leading Democrats figured they had drawn new boundaries that would allow a rising star in the state Senate to move up to Congress. Republicans figured that the incumbent, 85-year-old Roscoe Bartlett, would retire rather than face a tough race, leaving the door open for new candidates. But the Democrats didn't figure on John Delaney, 48, a financier who swamped the anointed favorite, Sen. Rob Garagiola, in the fundraising race and again at the polls.

When Roscoe Bartlett was thrust suddenly into front runner status in a topsy-turvy race for Congress in 1992, Republican leaders in Maryland arranged a meeting so he could get to know them. Maybe it was his ill-fitting suit, or his folksy demeanor, but the meeting did not go well. "The initial reaction was, ‘Does this guy really have a chance?'" recalled Ellen Sauerbrey, then the minority leader of the Maryland House of Delegates. "He sure proved that he did. " During a nearly two decade career on Capitol Hill, the Western Maryland Republican has remained the consummate political outsider, eschewing Washington to drive home each night to his farm south of Frederick, bucking his own party on energy and climate change and claiming ownership of issues — such as stink bug control — that few others have embraced.

At a time when Americans are engaged in a heated debate about cutting domestic social services and entitlement programs, we are forced to fund more and more social programs — for other nations. How so? In February, after seeing fellow Sunni Muslim regimes destabilizing throughout the Middle East, Saudi King Abdullah rushed back from New York, where he was recovering from a back injury, to the kingdom to stave off any potential spillover. After all, if Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak had been ousted, anyone could be. In an attempt to pacify its subjects, the House of Saud announced a "stimulus package" that included an increase in subsidies, a 15 percent salary raise to all government employees, and housing benefits to military and religious groups in exchange for support of his ban on protests.

Focus on values is financial issueFrom: Robert Ryan TouseyEllicott CityAccording to statistics compiled by the House Ways and Means Committee, a return to family values could dramatically reduce the number of people going on welfare. These statistics demonstrate that three quarters of our nation's welfare recipients are on welfare as a direct result of the decline in family values (45 percent because of divorce and separation and 30 percent due to a child born out of wedlock).Our nation would be a better place if people took the commitment to marriage more seriously and if fathers stayed around to support their children both emotionally and financially.

After declaring himself opposed to the death penalty last month, Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett said last night he supports affirmative action. One of the most conservative members of the House, the 6th District Republican voted in 1998 to prohibit affirmative action in higher education admissions. Last night, Bartlett told a crowd at a candidates forum in Westminster sponsored by the Carroll County NAACP: "I'm very supportive of affirmative action, but not quotas. "If there are two candidates for a job and one is a minority and one is not, I would give the job to the minority candidate," assuming both are equally qualified.
