Ehrlich to face O'Malley

By Washington Post editors

Former Maryland governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) will announce plans next week for a much-anticipated rematch with Gov. Martin O’Malley, the Democrat who defeated him in a bitter contest four years ago, according to Republicans familiar with his plans.

The announcement sets up a fight for a second term between two of the state’s dominant political personalities, both of whom are fierce competitors and don’t particularly like the other. The race could also go a long way toward determining the relevance of Republicans for years to come in the heavily Democratic state.

This is the type of news that makes a grown man want to cry... Mr. Ehrlich, we voted you out 4 years ago because you did nothing positive for the state, you've done nothing positive for Maryland over the last four years except pollute the radio air-waves as a Rush Limbaugh ditto-head wannabe, and if Maryland voters are smart - and I think they are - they will make sure that you don't have the opportunity to do the state any further harm by keeping you out of office. It is a shame the Republican Party doesn't have any better candidates to run for Governor.
