Post Endorses Ehrlich


For all those Maryland Moment bloggers who say the Post never endorses a Republican...check this out .

The Post this morning endorsed GOP Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. for reelection, crediting him with successes in transportation, the environment and education despite resistance from the Democrat-controlled Generall Assembly.

" In fits and starts, though, he has grown in the role to become a generally proficient, pragmatic governor, if not always a disciplined or mature one," the editorial board wrote. The board operates indepedently of the news pages.

The editorial praises Democratic challenger Martin O'Malley as a "smart, adroit politician who has compiled a creditable record as mayor of Baltimore for the past seven years." But it suggested he has been overly cautious and insular in his campaign and reluctant to address questions about how he would pay for his initiatives.
