Ehrlich sets out on Md. campaign trail

Ehrlich Hagerstown.jpgFormer Maryland governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) ventured back onto the campaign trail Thursday, making stops in three of the counties where he ran the strongest in his 2006 loss.

"Good to see you, Bob," said one of about three dozen supporters who turned out for a morning stop in downtown Hagerstown the day after Ehrlich announced his rematch with Gov. Martin O'Malley (D).

While in Western Maryland, Ehrlich sounded many of the same themes as Wednesday, saying that Annapolis is "broken" and that he is well-positioned to fix it.

"We left Annapolis with a sense of unfinished business," Ehrlich said, repeating calls to cut the sales tax and double the number of charter schools in Maryland.

At the Hagerstown stop, Ehrlich acknowledged his strong numbers in surrounding Washington County during previous races -- he won nearly 61 percent of the vote there in 2006.

"It's Ehrlich country, and we need you to step up again," he said.

"It's neat to be back, and we've been here a lot over the year," Ehrlich said at the outset of his remarks in downtown Frederick.
