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.

Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. confirmed Tuesday that he will try to reclaim his former job as governor, hoping to benefit from a national anti-incumbent sentiment that emerged since the last presidential election and has deepened during the health care debate. If victorious, Ehrlich, a Republican, would become the first politician in modern Maryland history to win a rematch after losing as an incumbent governor. Ehrlich was defeated by Democrat Martin O'Malley in 2006, the only sitting governor ousted by voters that year.

Among the likely Democratic candidates for Maryland governor in 2014 - Howard County executive Ken Ulman, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, Attorney General Doug Gansler - Ulman comes closest to being the "Baltimore-area candidate. " But a genuine Baltimore-area candidate - someone who could pull votes from Baltimore County and the city, and enough in other key sectors of the state - would be a serious contender for the big-daddy chair in Annapolis. And who might that be? Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, the six-term congressman and former Baltimore County executive, "is considering it," says his spokeswoman, Jaime Lennon.

Erin Cox's report on the GOP gubernatorial primary strikes out again ( "Lollar launches campaign for governor," Sept. 3). Why doesn't she get it? Ms. Cox points out that the field is widening, with several candidates - including two other Republicans and several announced Democratic candidates - all vying to replace term-limited Gov. Martin O'Malley. But again she failed to include my name. Well, here's a news flash: I am also running for governor. Why doesn't Ms. Cox read her own newspaper?

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.

Larry Hogan, chairman of the conservative activist group Change Maryland, says he'll seek the Republican nomination for governor in 2014. In an interview Friday, Hogan said that while he will hold off a formal announcement until January, there's no doubt he will join three other contenders in the June 24 GOP primary. "I really have made up my mind," said Hogan, a former appointments secretary to Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. Hogan, 57, came close to a full-blown announcement Friday night in a speech to his group in an Annapolis hotel that is also hosting a Republican state convention this weekend.
