Md. GOP gubernatorial hopefuls buy TV time
Both former Maryland governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) and his GOP primary challenger Brian Murphy are poised to start airing television ads in coming days.
Murphy announced Friday morning that he is launching a statewide ad campaign in advance of the Sept. 14 primary. The purchase appears to be a targeted cable buy. The campaign said the ad will debut this afternoon on Glenn Beck's show on Fox News.
The introductory ad is narrated by Murphy and features footage of his family. He argues that small businesses have been stifled in Maryland and that "our last two governors forgot their role," referring to both Ehrlich and Gov. Martin O'Malley (D).
Meanwhile, 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.
Both GOP candidates are hitting the airwaves long after O'Malley, who took advantage of his more robust bank account and went on TV on July 12.
