Ehrlich says wife nudged him to run again in Md.

John Wagner

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.

No one has been more eager to get back into Government House than Kendel Ehrlich. They had to pry her out of the house with a crowbar last time...she's been itching to get back in ever since.

Maybe she should run for governor, she seems to want it more than her hubby does. But either way, I won't vote for them. They have nothing new to offer us.

I LOVE Bob and I'm supporting him again for governor. But, POWER has DEFINITELY gone to Kendel's little bleached-blonde head. When Bob was first elected governor, Kendel wanted to be viewed as "Princess Di!" Kendel's ego is too much! Power hasn't corrupted Bob one bit. But as soon as Bob was elected to Congress, Kendel became power & prestige hungry. It's only gotten worse. She is pathetic. Listen to her talk over Bob on their weekly talkshow...she's even rude to her husband! Kendel, please show some humility. If it weren't for marrying Bob, you'd be among the LITTLE people you so don't want to associate with too! God bless Bob!
