Kendel Ehrlich, wife of former Maryland Gov. Robert Ehrlich, is expected to appear at a forum Thursday for candidates seeking to replace former Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold. She will be alongside Republican Del. Steve Schuh and former U.S. Senate candidate Dan Bongino.
The West County Republican Club is hosting the forum at the West County Area Library in Odenton Md. Applications for the county executive seat must be submitted to the County Council by noon on Friday.
Under the county charter, the council has 30 days to fill the seat with another Republican.
Leopold resigned last week after he was found guilty of two counts of misconduct.
