Ehrlich encourages supporters, still mum on announcement date

Thumbnail image for Ehrlich.jpgFormer 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.

Ehrlich is a proven loser. This should make the democrats happy.

I'm a democrat all the way, but will definitely vote for Ehrlich if he runs as I did last time. Sorry, but some dems act like repubs when it comes to some issues, and I could NEVER vote for Kathleen - citizens cannot be trusted with firearms - Kennedy Townsend. I will confess to voting for O'Malley last go round, but he is WAY too liberal for me as well. Can't vote for anyone who is against capital punishment. I wrote O'Malley a letter and asked him point blank if the snipers, and John Clouey should be executed in his opinion, but didn't get the courtesy of a response. I can't support most repub agendas, but I can't vote for wussies either. I have huge respect for Tim Kaine for allowing executions to go forward even though he is opposed to the death penalty. If O'Malley had taken a clue from him he might stand a chance to get my vote. Too liberal for me.
