Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. raised $600,000 for a likely re-election bid during a reception last night at a Baltimore hotel that attracted a healthy contingent of Democrats. The event at the Hyatt Regency drew a crowd of 500 and brought Ehrlich's fund-raising tally for the past week to $1.4 million. A breakfast reception May 27 featuring former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani took in $800,000. "This was to give us money to put in the bank," said Ehrlich finance chairman John C. Reith, explaining the appeal of the big-ticket fund-raisers compared with the smaller parties Ehrlich relied on during his campaign.
