GOP longshot for governor announces former delegate as running mate

brian murphy.jpg

UPDATE 4:55 p.m.: Murphy has confirmed the pick. "She likes the message, and she loves the state," he said of Amedori, adding that her experience in the legislature and on the parole commission will be invaluable.

In a separate interview, Amedori said she and Murphy are in the race to win and suggested Ehrlich is vulnerable in a GOP primary. "He's not the frontrunner with the conservative base," she said.

Original post: Long-shot Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Murphy is planning to announce his running mate Friday, and his pick is certain to raise some eyebrows.

Carmen M. Amedori, a former state delegate from Carroll County who has been running for U.S. Senate, will be joining the ticket as Murphy's lieutenant governor candidate, according to multiple GOP operatives with knowledge of the pick.

Amedori was plucked from the legislature in 2004 by then-Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) to serve on the state parole commission. Ehrlich, of course, is now seeking the GOP nomination again himself, with the expectation of challenging Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) in November.

Murphy and Amedori are casting themselves as a conservative alternative to Ehrlich and will try to gain traction among Republican activists.

Calls to the Murphy camp were not immediately returned Thursday afternoon. Murphy has planned an announcement at 4:30 p.m. in Annapolis.

I am glad to see that Mr. Murphy is putting together a strong ticket. I look forward to seeing how the Republican primary plays out.

Sorry to see her out of the US Senate race. Wargotz would have prevailed but at least it would have been a race there.
