Ehrlich claims support of Md. GOP lawmakers
The campaign of former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) on Tuesday claimed the endorsements of all 51 Republican members of the Maryland General Assembly.
The release of letters bearing the signatures of 14 senators and 37 delegates came just days after Montgomery County businessman Brian Murphy filed for the GOP nomination and announced his selection of Carmen Amedori, a former state delegate, as his running mate. Murphy is seeking to run as a more conservative, business-oriented alternative to Ehrlich.
"I am grateful to my friends in the legislature for their confidence and their leadership," Ehrlich said in a statement. "They share my commitment to helping the private sector create jobs, lowering the tax burden on working families and getting government to spend within its means."
