This was an unusual sight, members of the Legislative Black Caucus hustling around the House chambers, taking a head count and firming up support for a bill extending voting rights to convicted felons. They had talked over the strategy and their assignments. They compared notes during their morning meeting. Then they went to work. "It was clicking," Del. James E. Proctor Jr., a Prince George's Democrat, said afterward. "You've never seen that before, and I've been here 11 years." It was classic politicking, and it paid off. The House of Delegates passed the bill 89 to 45. The vote was another victory to go with a string of successful campaigns this legislative session.

Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. raised $600,000 for a likely re-election bid during a reception last night at a Baltimore hotel that attracted a healthy contingent of Democrats. The event at the Hyatt Regency drew a crowd of 500 and brought Ehrlich's fund-raising tally for the past week to $1.4 million. A breakfast reception May 27 featuring former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani took in $800,000. "This was to give us money to put in the bank," said Ehrlich finance chairman John C. Reith, explaining the appeal of the big-ticket fund-raisers compared with the smaller parties Ehrlich relied on during his campaign.
