McCain to Speak in Md. Tonight; Ehrlich Joins Him

Maryland Republicans will have a chance tonight to see the GOP presidential nomination frontrunner: Sen. John McCain will speak at the Baltimore County Republican dinner in Halethorpe.

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney had been scheduled to speak. But Romney dropped out of the race today. Now, it's on McCain's schedule. The event begins at 6:30 p.m., at the Dewey Lowman American Legion Post 109, 1610 Old Sulphur Spring Road. Former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) is scheduled to join him. Ehrlich, previously a supporter of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, has been looking for a new candidate.

Started Jan. 3. Over Feb. 7. They didn't have to overlap Christmas and New Years. The first election should have been in April---we still would have had 6 months. Will Romney run against Kerry in 2010?

major endorsement will be Bob Ehrlich, who was previously the state coordinator for Rudy. It won't be Romney. Romney folks confirm he's no longer appearing at the event.
