Ehrlich re-emerges and hits O’Malley on jobs
Former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) stayed out of public view on Tuesday, as Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) launched his re-election bid. On Wednesday, Ehrlich climbed back into the ring and came out swinging.
Appearing on “The C4 Show” on Baltimore’s WBAL radio, Ehrlich accused O’Malley of discovering job creation as an election-year issue and criticized the current governor’s failure to lure Northrop Grumman’s headquarters to Maryland.
“You don’t come around to it every four years and say, ‘I’m for jobs,’” Ehrlich told radio host Clarence M. Mitchell IV.
This week, O’Malley said Northrop Grumman’s decision to move its corporate headquarters to Northern Virginia was “a win for the entire Greater Washington region.”
“With due respect to the governor,” Ehrlich said Wednesday, “he’s not governor of the region. … Virginia won. We lost. End of discussion.”
Ehrlich also sent out a fundraising solicitation Wednesday mocking O’Malley’s frequent use of the word “progress” to describe what has happened to the state under his leadership. The solicitation says, for example, that unemployment in Maryland has doubled since 2006 and that more than 230,000 Marylanders are currently looking for a job and unable to find one.
“Marylanders cannot afford four more years of Governor O’Malley’s ‘Progress,’” Ehrlich says in the solicitation.

Analyst: Maryland governor’s race ‘competitive’- Bob Ehrlich closing the gap quickly. Teflon Leprechaun will be in trouble in November
Analyst: Maryland governor’s race ‘competitive’
The nonpartisan Cook Political Report on Thursday moved its needle on Maryland’s governor’s race two notches to the center — and just left of its bracket titled “toss up” — saying former Republican Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich’s decision to seek a rematch with incumbent Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) ensures a “competitive” race.
Jennifer E. Duffy, a senior editor for the Cook Political Report, first tweeted the news this morning.
The new rating puts 14 of Democrats’ 19 governors’ seats in play nationwide. Maryland is now one of two still hanging on the left in the “lean” column. Seven are in the “toss up” bracket. The rest have crossed into Republican territory with three leaning right and two more rated as “likely” to go to Republicans in November.
It’s Official, Please join our Next Governor of Maryland on April 7th as he makes his Formal Announcement.
Are you ready to take back Maryland?
Then I hope you’ll join me on Wednesday, April 7th as I announce my candidacy for Governor of Maryland.
Just click on this link for exact time and locations for our kick-off events in Montgomery County and Baltimore County. Kendel and I hope to see you there!
