O'Malley Says He's Ready For Ehrlich Again

By Matt Bush

Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley says he's ready for a potential rematch with his predecessor this fall.

O'Malley defeated Republican Robert Ehrlich by 7 percentage points four years ago. Ehrlich says he wants a rematch, saying the political winds have changed over the past year. O'Malley says he's been too busy being governor to pay attention to whether that's the case.

"I don't read tea leaves, and I don't generally spend a lot of energy wondering about political winds," he says, "especially in these times, the challenges are so enormous. It's not a time to stand around with your finger in the air. You have to work."

The rematch isn't set in stone, as both men face challengers in their respective party primaries September 14th.
