Report: Ehrlich eyes April 7 announcement
In recent weeks, former Maryland governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s camp has been telegraphing an early April announcement of his rematch against Gov. Martin O'Malley (D). A news report Wednesday -- which Ehrlich (R) is not confirming -- is the first to float a particular date: April 7.
Bruce DePuyt of ABC 7 and NewsChannel 8 is reporting, based on "an informed source," that Ehrlich will announce April 7 at 10 a.m. in Rockville, with another event that evening in his childhood home of Arbutus.
In response to the report, Ehrlich spokesman Henry Fawell issued this statement: "This is speculation, and we'll decline to comment on each new date that hits the rumor circuit. Bob Ehrlich is grateful for the interest and will make his intentions known at the right time."
Several Ehrlich boosters have told us that April 7 is a possible, if not likely, date but that the timing could still slip. Republican legislative leaders said Wednesday that they have yet to be invited to an announcement on that day.
Ehrlich associates had previously strongly hinted at an announcement this Thursday -- Maryland Day -- as a likely announcement date. That is not happening.
