Former Governor Urges Small Businesses To Organize

Play associated audio

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) With tax day as a backdrop, former Gov. Robert Ehrlich is urging small business owners to get more organized to voice their frustration about Maryland taxes.

Ehrlich, a Republican who is running to get his old job back from Gov. Martin O'Malley, spoke to about a dozen small business owners on Thursday.

He says the voices of small business owners often get lost in the political debate, because they're too busy working.

Ehrlich spoke at an Annapolis bar and restaurant before heading to a tea party rally in Westminster later in the day.
