Education Ad Wars (in Baltimore only)
Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley (D) boasts of his endorsement by Maryland's largest teachers union and outlines broad goals for education in a television ad that his gubernatorial campaign began airing yesterday in the Baltimore region.
O'Malley's latest ad comes as the Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich (R) campaign continues to air an ad saying that some of the state's lowest-performing schools are in Baltimore. O'Malley's campaign released another radio ad yesterday, narrated by O'Malley's running mate, Prince George's County Del. Anthony G. Brown, that responds directly to Ehrlich's ad.
"The truth? Test scores for Baltimore schools are up, and graduation rates are improving," Brown says in the ad, which is airing primarily on black radio stations in Baltimore. "But it's no surprise Bob Ehrlich is attacking their progress, given his own failed record on education."
Ehrlich spokeswoman Shareese DeLeaver dismissed the ad, saying "The bottom line is Mayor O'Malley is promising to do for the state what he has failed to do for ..... Baltimore City."
