Ehrlich says wife nudged him to run again in Md.
Former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) on Wednesday credited his wife, Kendel, with providing much of the inspiration for his attempted comeback.
Addressing supporters at his announcement in Rockville, where his wife joined him on stage, Ehrlich said that after his 2006 loss, "I thought my public career was most likely over." But, Ehrlich said, "she explained to me a couple of years ago that we're not done."
The Ehrlichs co-host a weekly talk show on WBAL radio in Baltimore. Kendel Ehrlich is a lawyer by training. On Wednesday, Bob Ehrlich described her as "my foundation."
The former governor noted that his two children have grown up since he last ran. Drew is now 10, he said, and Josh, who was born while Ehrlich was governor, is 6.
