Ehrlich campaign names former television reporter as press secretary
The gubernatorial campaign of Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) announced Monday that it has hired long-time Baltimore television reporter Andy Barth as its press secretary.
Barth, a Democrat, ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 2008 in Maryland's 3rd District. He was later hired by another of his Democratic rivals, Peter Beilenson, the health director in Howard County, for communications work.
Barth, a Columbia resident, made his mark in television as a reporter at WMAR, the Baltimore-based ABC affiliate. He later did work for WTTG, the Fox affiliate in Washington.
"I have tremendous respect for Bob Ehrlich," Barth said in a statement issued by the Ehrlich campaign. "I believe he has the leadership and competence needed to rejuvenate Maryland's economy, balance the state's budget, and offer common sense solutions to the big challenges we face."
Ehrlich, who served as Maryland governor between 2003 and 2007, is set to announce a rematch Wednesday with Gov. Martin O'Malley (D).
