Frederick County State's Attorney Scott Rolle says that if he doesn't win the March primary for the 6th Congressional District, he'll support Rep. Roscoe Bartlett for another term. Until then, Rolle said, he's going to give Bartlett the best race he can. Rolle, 42, has drawn heat from Republican Party regulars who didn't want a primary challenge to Bartlett to draw resources away from other races featuring Democrat-Republican match-ups. Bartlett has been endorsed by Republican Gov. Robert Ehrlich, who served with Bartlett in Congress.

Bartlett's extremist colors show To the editor: Maryland's congressional delegation is split evenly between Democrats and Republicans, but only three of those eight members of Congress voted to impeach the president. Of those that voted to impeach the president, only one voted for all four articles of impeachment. That one was extreme right-winger Roscoe Bartlett. Despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of his constituents oppose impeachment, Bartlett chose to follow his own holier-than-thou judgment of the president.

Congress candidate Seth Edward Wilson of Hagerstown doesn't like what he sees in Washington, D.C. "I think the level of federal spending is out of control and it's due to a broken political system," he said. As evidence, Wilson cited the increasing level of spending as a percentage of gross domestic product. Wilson, who will turn 40 on Saturday, is one of four Republicans trying to defeat incumbent U.S. Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett in the Sept. 14 primary election. Bartlett is seeking a 10th two-year term.

Whew, what a week. First, my Frosty the Snowman costume gets trashed, then the 6th District congressional race gets even more trashed before it even starts. Really, what was that? I know there'd been what the weather forecasters call an "upper atmosphere disturbance" on the Republican side as they sorted out the newly redrawn district, but how did that break out into a Category IV hurricane in a day? I haven't seen anything blow up that fast since Anthony Weiner's Twitter account.

HAGERSTOWN Democrat Andrew Duck said Wednesday he believes his military background and his promises to be a better lawmaker than his Republican opponent for the 6th U.S. Congressional District are among the reasons he should be elected in 2006. Duck, 42, of Brunswick, Md., officially kicked off his campaign against U.S. Rep. Roscoe Bartlett in a number of short appearances throughout the congressional district. He spent about 30 minutes in Hagerstown. "People I talked to told me it's time for a change," Duck said before a group of about a dozen people at the park next to the University System of Maryland at Hagerstown on West Washington Street.

U.S. Rep. John Delaney, D-Md., of Maryland's 6th District was among the speakers at Saturday's event. Delaney defeated longtime Republican Rep. Roscoe Bartlett in the November 2012 general election for the seat representing Western Maryland.

Holding the Purple Heart he received Tuesday, Gene Mayer said, “It took 46 years to get here.” U.S. Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett's office helped Mayer, 71, of Hagerstown, get nine medals he earned through military service. Bartlett presented the medals to Mayer before holding a town hall meeting at the Funkstown fire hall. During an interview after the meeting, Mayer said he served from 1959 to 1968 in Germany, Korea, Vietnam and Japan. Lisa Wright, an aide to Bartlett, said by phone earlier Tuesday that Bartlett's office is still trying to see if Mayer also will get a Bronze Star.

It is a story rich in ironies almost too numerous to mention. At the end of the day, it probably is a sound and fury significant of nothing - but sometimes it's just fun to recap. U.S. Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, who went to great lengths to avoid military service (by way of a theological deferment) in World War II is now disturbed that he was passed over by his colleagues for promotion to the rank of Republican leader on the House Armed Services Committee. Bartlett's interest in seminary lasted only as long as the war, but his interest in the armed services as a member of Congress has been more enduring.
