'Stay Tuned,' Ehrlich Tells Supporters

Keeping the drama alive over a possible comeback, former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) posted this message on his Facebook page Monday, thanking supporters who turned out in Reisterstown on Saturday for a "family corn roast" that doubled as a fundraiser:

"Bob Ehrlich is enormously grateful to everyone who attended the corn roast this weekend. What a great event! A special thanks to the organizers. Stay tuned for more events."

A Post story that ran in print editions Saturday did not include an assessment of Ehrlich's deliberations by Larry Hogan, a former Ehrlich Cabinet secretary, that ran in an online version of the story Friday. For those who missed it, here's what Hogan, who is contemplating a gubernatorial bid himself, had to say:

"I believe that [Ehrlich] truly is on the fence. I've known Bob Ehrlich for 30 years. If he knew he was running, I believe he would tell me, and if he knew he wasn't running, I believe he would tell me. ... I don't think he's even leaning one way or another."

Mike Pappas, a Towson lawyer who is preparing to run for the GOP nomination, also gave us his read on Ehrlich: "You know, your guess is as good as mine. I've heard as many people say he's in as who've said he's out."

Meanwhile, Del. Patrick L. McDonough (R-Baltimore County), a third, lesser-known GOP candidate "testing the waters" for governor, has announced a news conference for Wednesday. McDonough says he will be developing legislation to prevent organizations such as ACORN, the liberal advocacy group, "from engaging in corruption with taxpayer's money."
