Encouraged by Gov. William Donald Schaefer and his political brain trust, Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos has become intrigued by the prospect of running for governor and is giving the idea serious thought.The multimillionaire team owner, according to sources close to Mr. Schaefer and Mr. Angelos, would like to enter the crowded Democratic field, but must decide whether he is willing to give up or take time away from his current enterprises.What does not seem in dispute is that Mr. Angelos, a former Baltimore city councilman who ran unsuccessfully for council president and mayor in the 1960s, has a desire to re-enter the political arena.

Rep. John Delaney, the Potomac Democrat who has emerged as a leading critic of Maryland's troubled health exchange, is fueling speculation that he is interested in running for governor — a move observers said could shake up the state's premier political contest this year. A former banking executive who rose from political obscurity to gain an improbable win for Congress in 2012, Delaney has done little to quell the buzz generated by his repeated criticism of Gov. Martin O'Malley or the revelation that his name appeared alongside other gubernatorial candidates in a recent poll.

Howard County Executive Charles I. Ecker, whose moderate politics and easygoing style have made him one of the most successful Republicans in county history, is seriously weighing a run for governor -- against the powerful conservative Ellen R. Sauerbrey.In making that bid, Ecker would face an enormous uphill fight to try to win a 1998 GOP primary election against Sauerbrey -- a formidable opponent with statewide name recognition and a loyal following among the conservative voters who dominate the Republican primary.

How much damage could that teen party in a Delaware beach house do to Doug Gansler's campaign for governor of Maryland? Hard to tell. I've heard three reactions: •Righteous indignation: Gansler is the attorney general. He publicly opposed but privately condoned underage drinking. He had no business joining other parents in renting a house where teen drinking would likely occur. The photos from the beach house are outrageous - a bunch of Landon School boys spoiled by their affluent parents.

As a 4-year-old boy bounded to the electronic blackboard at Battle Grove Elementary School in Dundalk, Principal Jennifer Gounaris described the financial and logistic challenges she has overcome to open the pre-K classroom. The result, she said, was worth it. "These kids are going to kindergarten reading," Gounaris said. "See? They're already telling stories and identifying characters. You can totally see the benefit. … Every kid should have their first experience in school this way. " The three Democrats vying to be governor all have plans to expand such programs, eventually offering publicly funded pre-kindergarten to every Maryland youngster whose parents want it. The proposals have been met with enthusiasm from the party base and in education circles.

In your editorial "Time to take notice" (July 18), I took notice of a blatant omission. For reasons which I really do not understand, while you mentioned the names of several potential candidates for governor in the 2014 elections, you left out my name. Don't you good folks realize that I am the only candidate running for governor in 2014 who practices what he preaches? I believe campaign contributions are nothing but disguised bribes. When I ran for governor in 2010 and for U.S. Senate in 2012, I spent a total of $730, which enabled me to receive ethically almost 23,000 votes.

Maryland House Speaker Casper R. Taylor Jr. is abandoning the idea of running for governor next year, but he is hardly jumping on the re-election bandwagon of fellow Democrat Gov. Parris N. Glendening.In a letter to members of the House of Delegates circulated yesterday, Taylor said he will run only for re-election as a delegate from Allegany County next year and as speaker of the House.Without naming Glendening, Taylor was openly critical of the governor's performance, raising questions about where he is leading the state -- questions that set the stage for a potentially contentious legislative session this winter.

He's the most successful state legislator in the modern history of Western Maryland: The first chairman of a standing committee in the House of Delegates from that rural region, and the only House speaker in this century from the Appalachians. Could it be that Cumberland's Casper R. Taylor now wants to reach for the brass ring on the political merry-go-round by running for governor?Such speculation was inevitable from the time Gov. William Donald Schaefer took a personal hand in drumming up support for a $200-a-ticket Taylor fund-raiser in Baltimore Monday night.

Defying the odds against a legislator's making the leap to the state's top job, Del. Heather R. Mizeur plans to announce her candidacy Wednesday for the Democratic nomination for governor. The 40-year-old Montgomery County lawmaker would join Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown as an official candidate on the Democratic side in the June 2014 primary. Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler is expected to formally jump into the race in September. Rep. C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger, a Baltimore County Democrat, has said he is considering a run. If elected, Mizeur would become the first woman in Maryland to serve as governor and the first openly gay governor in the nation.
