Ehrlich to announce running mate at 10 p.m.

John Wagner

The official word about the running mate pick of former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) will come on Ehrlich's Facebook page at 10 p.m. Wednesday, the campaign says.

Speculation continues to center on Mary D. Kane, Ehrlich's former secretary of state and wife of former Maryland Republican Party chairman John Kane. But the Ehrlich camp has played it close to the vest, and other names remain in circulation among GOP insiders and other Maryland political junkies.

Ehrlich confirmed in a brief interview Tuesday night that he had made a selection, saying: "Personal compatibility and philosophical compatibility have always been the dominant factors." Ehrlich said geography and gender were "secondary" issues.

Ten to 12 people were seriously considered for the role of his lieutenant governor, Ehrlich said.

According to an announcement Wednesday morning, Ehrlich's new running mate will join him at events Thursday in Silver Spring, Baltimore and Waldorf. The ticket plans to officially file its candidacy on Friday.

This should be interesting. Say what you want about Governor Haircut, his running mates are never ordinary.

So true, wonder which of he and Kendel's favorites will get the nod, Jim Beam, Jack Daniels, Johnny Walker, Jose Cuervo, Tom Collins...? So thoughtful of them to wait until after Happy Hour.

Meanwhile, Martin is scorching...!

i hope he picks dick cheney. dick loves playing second fiddle and working behind the scenes, and giving dick a paycheck would be doing ehrlichs pal george bush a solid. i can't think of anyone else who is as close to ehrlich philosophically then cheney other then hitler, and hitler is dead.

It's Mary Kane. Anyone remember the words to the "Mary Jane" song?

Are there any lyrics in it that rhyme with "fraud"?
