Ehrlich stays out of view as O'Malley begins campaign
As Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) launched his reelection bid Tuesday, his most high-profile opponent, former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R), stayed out of sight, observing what his campaign described as "a long-standing tradition of not seeking to trample on his opponent's announcement day."
O'Malley held a well-attended press availability in Annapolis when Ehrlich announced earlier this month and became a prominent part of many news stories on the day.
Ehrlich was not entirely silent Tuesday, however, issuing the following statement:
"I welcome Governor O'Malley to the campaign. The citizens of Maryland -- particularly the 230,000 Marylanders who are currently unable to find work -- deserve a clear choice in this election. I look forward to a vigorous exchange of ideas with the governor on who has the vision required to help revitalize our economy, lower Maryland's tax burden, and fix the budget mess in Annapolis."
