McCain endorses Ehrlich in Md. primary

By Washington Post editors

U.S. Senator and former presidential candidate John McCain (R-Ariz.) says Robert Ehrlich has his support in Maryland's Republican primary for governor.

McCain expressed his support for the former governor in an interview Monday with the Associated Press after a meeting of the U.S. Naval Academy's Board of Visitors.

McCain says he thinks Ehrlich is "a fine guy," and he says Ehrlich has his endorsement.

Sarah Palin, who was McCain's running mate, has endorsed business investor Brian Murphy in the GOP primary, which is Tuesday in Maryland.

Ehrlich is seeking a rematch with Democratic incumbent Martin O'Malley.

Does Ehrlich think an endorsement from McCain will help him in Maryland? He's dreaming.

What a maverick-y thing to do.

Seriously, does anyone remember even one good thing Ehrlich did when he was in office?
