Former Maryland Governor Robert Ehrlich is expected to formally announce his gubernatorial campaign Wednesday morning in Rockville. He and his Democratic opponent, Gov. Martin O'Malley have not wasted time setting up their first debate.

Ehrlich says he will host O'Malley during his weekly show on WBAL radio this Saturday morning. O'Malley's campaign proposed the idea. Ehrlich says he will not bring in a moderator, but instead will host a one-on-one conversation about the challenges facing Maryland.

O'Malley defeated Ehrlich in 2006. Ehrlich says the political winds have changed in the past year and has mentioned economic hardships for families and businesses as key reasons for his campaign.

O'Malley says despite the recession, Maryland has made progress in the past four years. He says he looks forward to a conversation about ideas and issues that can keep the state moving forward.
