Bob Ehrlich’s Got Some Money to Spend


I thought Robert Ehrlich, the once and perhaps future governor of Maryland, was supposed to get blown out this year in terms of fundraising.

Former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) has raised $3.2 million this year for his comeback campaign, just shy of the $3.3 million that Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) said he took in during the same period, according an e-mail Friday morning from Ehrlich’s finance chairmen.

But O’Malley appears to have a 3-to-1 advantage in cash on hand over Ehrlich heading into the final months of the race.
