WBAL Radio confirmed Friday that Kendel Ehrlich is leaving the station and will be replaced Saturday mornings on air by Clarence Mitchell IV starting Saturday. Both general manager Ed Kiernan and news director Mark Miller characterized the move as something Ehrlich had been considering at least since the election in November that saw her husband, Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., defeated by Martin O'Malley in the governor's race. Miller and Kiernan said Ehrlich was making the move in an effort to spend more time at Saturday sports events involving her family.

Former Maryland first lady Kendel Ehrlich, Del. Steve Schuh and acting Anne Arundel County Executive John Hammond led a field of 16 applicants Friday to complete the term of former County Executive John R. Leopold. County Republicans said the unexpected number of applications indicated a healthy interest in setting the county on a path away from the turmoil that has enveloped the government for at least two years. Leopold, 70, a Republican, resigned midway through his second four-year term this month after his conviction on two counts of misconduct for using county employees to perform personal and political tasks.

I found Julie Bykowicz's March 28 article about the Ehrlichs quite interesting up until the moment I saw one of the pictures that was chosen by the editors to accompany the article ("Ehrlich misses being in the arena"). Others in my family independently had the same reaction after seeing this picture. I would like to know how many other pictures taken of Kendel Ehrlich at work behind the microphone at the radio station were discarded before the editors chose the most unflattering one of all?

Former Maryland first lady Kendel Ehrlich is considering running to fill the Anne Arundel County executive seat that was recently vacated by John R. Leopold, saying Saturday that she feels "uniquely qualified for a unique situation. " The County Council has 30 days to fill the seat left by Leopold, who stepped down as county executive Friday after being suspended from his position following his conviction on two counts of misconduct in office. Ehrlich, an attorney and the wife of former Gov. Robert Ehrlich, who has sparked rumors she would run for the top Arundel seat in the past as well, including in 2009, said Leopold's fall has left many county residents and employees frustrated and ready for change.

Defending her job with Comcast, first lady Kendel Ehrlich said yesterday that she was unaware of any contracts the cable company has with the state or of any authority state regulators have over it. Ehrlich, speaking on WBAL-AM, said she has earned the same $55,000 salary over the nearly 10-year period she has been employed by the firm. "Being married to an elected official ... shouldn't prevent me from being able to keep my hand in some profession one way or another for my future," she said.

Saying an unprecedented effort will be necessary to re-elect her husband, Maryland first lady Kendel S. Ehrlich called on Republican women to mount an aggressive grass-roots effort in 2006 similar to the one that brought President Bush victory in 2004. Ehrlich told members of the Maryland Federation of Republican Women that her husband, Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., has accomplished a great deal in his first term but would need another four years to change state government. And for that, she said, he will need a stronger base of volunteers than the Maryland GOP has ever amassed.

OCEAN CITY -- On the eve of her husband's announcement that he will seek a second term, first lady Kendel Ehrlich went on the offensive yesterday, calling Mayor Martin O'Malley a "failure," saying legislative leaders renege on deals and predicting that the Democrats will try to steal the November election. Ehrlich, a former prosecutor, has always been known as an aggressive promoter of Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. Yesterday, in a luncheon speech to Republican women, she showed that she could play a far different role in the coming campaign from most political spouses.

It's yet another campaign fund-raiser in another hotel conference room and scores of attorneys have paid $500 to attend a VIP reception with Republican gubernatorial candidate Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. and Michael S. Steele, his running mate. But when the time comes for the attorneys to pose with Ehrlich for photos, it's not the running mate who is summoned to join him in front of the camera. Rather, it's the life mate -- Kendel Ehrlich, his wife. "I kind of thought it was inappropriate that I was in those pictures," she says later.

Talk about two political careers going in opposite directions. Last Sunday, I wrote about the top Sunday morning public affairs shows like "Meet the Press"  falling in love with Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and booking him every chance they get. I missed the debut that day of a sorry little 30-minute piece of political propaganda called "Politics Unplugged" -- the product of former governor Bob Ehrlich and his wife, Kendel, buying time Sunday...

President Barack Obama apologizes for the bother, but he'd really like you to vote for Democratic Rep. Frank Kratovil. Former Maryland first lady Kendel Ehrlich politely asks for your support of her husband, Republican Robert. L. Ehrlich Jr. Think of it as auditory spam: With less than a week to go until Election Day, robocalls are peaking. The automated voices of Gov. Martin O'Malley and Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, as well as Ehrlich and running mate Mary Kane, should be familiar by now. That is, if you're answering your telephone.

Gov. Martin O'Malley ponied up about $10,000 for a campaign trail recreational vehicle and $1,189 for Amtrak trips. Former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. doled out about $20,000 for a fashion show that doubled as a gubernatorial fundraiser and $3,000 for helicopter travel. Those items are among nearly $10 million in expenses for the two leading candidates for governor, documented in their final pre-election campaign finance reports made public over the weekend. Ehrlich, a Republican, reported spending about $3.5 million; O'Malley, a Democrat, about $5.8 million.

Kendel Ehrlich and her husband, former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., made separate campaign stops in Howard County over the past week, as confident-sounding county Republicans also met in a Columbia law firm office to raise money for Dennis R. Schrader's County Council run and to boost a campaign to put a tax limit measure on the November ballot. The former governor spent an hour Tuesday at Tian Chinese restaurant in the Lotte Plaza shopping center in Ellicott City talking to a group of about 25 Korean-American business owners from around the state about his plans to boost small business.
