Ehrlich encourages supporters, still mum on announcement date
Former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) stopped short Thursday of confirming a news report that his announcement day will be April 7 -- but did nothing to tamp down the talk.
In a Facebook posting, Ehrlich wrote: "Lots of speculation in the press over my plans. I'm meeting with Marylanders every day to hear whether they're happy with the status quo or ready to take a stand. I intend to make my decision known in the near future. Thank you for all your words of encouragement!"
The report Wednesday by ABC News 7 was the first to float a specific day in April for Ehrlich's announcement of a rematch with Gov. Martin O'Malley (D), which aides have signaled is coming.
The Maryland Democratic Party, meanwhile, keyed off the news report to mock Ehrlich in a new online poll asking: "Which Bob do you prefer?" Needless to say, none of the choices are very flattering.
