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.
