October 20th, 2014 | by Alexis Webb

President Obama made a rare campaign stop in Maryland Sunday afternoon to rally support for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Anthony Brown and to encourage early voting.

‘There you go again': How Brown and Hogan did in the last debate

October 19th, 2014 | by Maryland Reporter

"There you go again," Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown said at least twice to Republican candidate Larry Hogan Jr. in their third and final debate for the governor's office. It was true for both men, as they replayed comments from the previous two debates, their TV ads and stump speeches. They repeated facts, figures and fictions, true-life examples and exaggerations. And here they go again, our commentators assess the debate: This posting contains nine separate commentaries from Len Lazarick, Todd Eberly, Barry Rascovar, Tom Schaller, Blair Lee, Rick Vatz, Brian Griffiths, Blaine Taylor, Melissa Bolling and Charlie Hayward

October 16th, 2014 | by Glynis Kazanjian

Larry Hogan, Jr., the Republican nominee for governor, said he knows beating Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown is going to be hard, but his own polling shows him running better than any Republican before, including Bob Ehrlich, whom he served as appointments secretary


Lt. gov. candidates Ulman, Rutherford clash in radio debate

October 16th, 2014 | by Len Lazarick

The two men running for the No. 2 spot at the Annapolis State House actually have more government management experience on their resumes than their running mates at the top of the ticket for governor. But Democrat Ken Ulman, the two-term Howard County executive, and Boyd Rutherford, a former state General Services secretary and assistant U.S. agriculture secretary, faithfully echoed the positions of party nominees Anthony Brown and Larry Hogan Jr. as they argued with each other and even the moderator Thursday in an hour-long debate on WAMU-

Hogan-Brown debate 2: Eberly calls it a tie and analyzes the campaign

October 13th, 2014 | by Len Lazarick

The second Maryland gubernatorial debate is in the can and, for me anyway, the results mirrored the first debate. Both Anthony Browne and Larry Hogan performed well, neither made any serious mistakes, and neither scored any major blows. It was a tie. The debate itself, however, came across as a disorganized mess.

Rascovar: Franchot delivers bad news for Brown campaign

September 28th, 2014 | by Barry Rascovar

OUCH! That's the sound coming from Anthony Brown's campaign headquarters after hearing of a $405 million drop in expected state revenue over the next 21 months. This is bad news for the lieutenant governor's gubernatorial drive. The shrinking revenue forecast not only buoys Republican Larry Hogan's campaign, it powerfully reinforces Hogan's central theme: Maryland's budget is out of kilter and in need of serious overhaul

State election officials are scheduled to rule Thursday on the first of three campaign finance violation complaints filed in the contentious race for governor, but the two most serious complaints won't likely be resolved till after the election. Civil penalties could be imposed on Larry Hogan’s Change Maryland organization. Another complaint involving possible collusion between the Brown-Ulman campaign, its chief fundraiser and a political action committee (PAC) supporting Brown is still under investigation
