Some of the major candidates for governor in Maryland will take part in a forum on the proposed Purple Line light rail project tomorrow night. Conspicuously absent will be attorney general and gubernatorial candidate Doug Gansler.

Gansler will not be at the forum at Montgomery College. Instead, he'll be at fundraiser at a private residence in Bethesda with Montana governor Steve Bullock. Gansler's running mate, Prince George's County delegate Jolene Ivey, will speak on his behalf at the Purple Line forum, where organizers say Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown and Montgomery County delegate Heather Mizeur are scheduled to attend.

Also confirmed for the forum: Anne Arundel County delegate Ron George, who's seeking the Republican nomination for governor. George, unlike his Democratic counterparts, was a chief opponent of the gas tax hikes passed by the General Assembly this year which will fund the construction of the Purple Line.
