O'Malley runs ad on Ehrlich's show

By Washington Post editors

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley's campaign has run a radio ad criticizing former governor Robert Ehrlich during a commercial break on Ehrlich's weekly radio show.

The ad, which ran twice during the WBAL-AM program Saturday, says Ehrlich must be living in a "fantasy land" to say he left office with hundreds of millions of dollars in budget surplus.

Ehrlich talked about the ad after it aired. The Republican questioned why O'Malley's campaign would run the ad when the state Democratic Party is contending that program sponsors are in effect subsidizing Ehrlich's campaign.

Ehrlich did not address the ad's message. He said that would wait for another time.

The GOP candidate says he plans to continue his radio show until he formally files to run against O'Malley. The filing deadline is July 1.

Ha-ha. Good for O'Malley for trying to turn the monologue into a dialogue. Too bad for Ehrlich that he couldn't answer the charge. Ehrlich talks a good game until he has to confront facts.

O'Malley should be running add's in Spanish to make sure all the illegal's in Maryland vote to stay on the honey wagon!

The guy gets called out by an ad, on his own show, and doesn't respond or answer the charges?

Gotta love the GOP...
