Brown, Hogan seek momentum in final debate

Democrat Anthony G. Brown and Republican Larry Hogan will try to grab the momentum as they face off Saturday in the third and final televised debate of the campaign for governor.

The hourlong debate, which will be taped at Maryland Public Television and broadcast on MPT and WBAL Channel 11 at 7 p.m., comes just days before early voting begins Thursday. Election Day is Nov. 4.

The debate comes as the race between Brown, Gov. Martin O'Malley's lieutenant governor, and Hogan, a business owner and former Ehrlich administration Cabinet official, appears to be tightening. A Baltimore Sun Poll released Sunday showed Brown up by 7 points but with softer support than Hogan.

The two have met on television twice before in recent weeks, once in Baltimore and once in the Washington market. The two previous encounters have produced heated exchanges, with Hogan hammering Brown on the state of Maryland's economy and Brown questioning Hogan's credibility on gun control and his commitment to education.

The two men's running mates, Howard County Executive Ken Ulman for the Democrats and former Ehrlich administration Cabinet official Boyd Rutherford on the Republican side, debated on the radio Thursday.

The MPT debate will be moderated by WBAL's Jason Newton and will include a panel made up of WBAL's Deborah Weiner and reporters from WBOC-TV in Salisbury and WHAG-TV in Hagerstown.

In addition to the local broadcasts, WHAG will air the debate at 7 p.m. and WBOC will show it at 8 p.m.
