Maryland Republican Calls For Ehrlich To Run

By Matt McCleskey

A former Republican cabinet member in Maryland says he won't run for governor, but he's urging his old boss to give it another shot.

Larry Hogan served in the cabinet of former Republican Governor Robert Ehrlich. He had formed an exploratory committee to look into pursuing his party's nomination for governor this November, although following big Democratic gains in 2008, Hogan initially had said a Republican win looked like a long shot.

But now, he says recent Republican victories in important races around the country show Maryland could be competitive too. Hogan says he's dropping his bid and is instead urging Ehrlich to challenge current Democratic Governor, Martin O'Malley, to a rematch.

He's also urging any other Republicans thinking about running to unite behind an Ehrlich bid. There's been no word yet from Ehrlich on whether or not he'll run.
