The Race is On

Within a day of J. Joseph Curran's retirement announcement this morning, it appears as though a Republican will be entering the race to replace the long-serving Democratic attorney general.

Scott Rolle, the Frederick County State's Attorney, issued an advisory Sunday night inviting the press to join him tomorrow for a series of "political announcements" featuring some "special guests," including Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) and Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele (R).

Rolle has scheduled three appearances, in Frederick, Rockville and Hunt Valley.

On the Democratic side, two Montgomery County candidates are also gearing up for official announcements this month: State's Attorney Douglas F. Gansler and County Council member Tom Perez.

And Rolle will be the come from behind candidate.

It's funny that when a blog is not on the Gubernatorial race there is not 15 plus comments. This proves that most of the comments on the gubernatorial race blogs are from Doug Duncan staffers.

I'm looking forward to Scott Rolle being raked over the coals by Tom Perez or Gansler. I'm all for Perez, we need another statesman in the AG's office, not some hand-picked Republican hack like Scott Rolle. If a white, male, right-wing Republican from Frederick County is their best hope, they should spend their money elsewhere.

Will, I don't support Duncan or O'Malley and contribute frequently (as seen here) to most of the blog posts. In reality, several O'Malley staffers were posting rumors about Duncan's staff retiring that weren't true now were they? Ironic that the pot will go off calling the kettle black here.

Byron-- Perez can't run. He has to debate in court and pray that they find some way to re-interpret the MD Constitution.

I find it interesting that "Gansler" is considered a shoe-in for office when a Democrat from Montgomery County has been elected to statewide office since 1919.
