Ehrlich TV ad to debut on Facebook
Former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) has made his Facebook page a big part of his 2010 campaign, even using the social networking site to unveil his choice of a running mate.
So perhaps it should come as no surprise that Ehrlich's first TV ad of the campaign will debut there as well.
"Stay tuned to Facebook Sunday morning for an exclusive look at our first television ad!" reads a post from Saturday afternoon.
We're told Ehrlich has bought time on network affiliates in Baltimore and Hagerstown starting Sunday. Campaign spokesman Andy Barth declined to discuss the buy this week.
Meanwhile, Ehrlich's GOP challenger, Brian Murphy, went on the air Friday with an introductory ad on cable.
Both GOP candidates are hitting the airwaves long after Gov. Martin O'Malley (D), who took advantage of his more robust bank account and went on TV on July 12.
