Maryland Politics: Republican governors congratulate Ehrlich

September 14, 2010|By Baltimore Sun reporter

The Associated Press hasn't called the GOP gubernatorial primary yet, but the Republican Governors Association has.

At 8:51 p.m., RGA spokesman Chris Schrimpf sent reporters a statement congratulating former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.

"Maryland voters know the difference Bob Ehrlich can make for their state," Schrimpf said. "Bob fought off Democratic tax increases and helped create 100,000 private sector jobs. Under [Democratic Gov. Martin] O'Malley all those jobs and more were lost and what's worse taxes went up by 1.3 billion dollars, the most in history. The question every Marylander will ask themselves is, are they better off now than they were four years ago?"
