With Larry Hogan’s upset win in the governor’s race, Republicans are so hot in Maryland right now. Apparently, it’s even bleeding over to presidential ambitions.
According to CBS Baltimore, former governor and Maryland GOP heavyweight Bob Ehrlich has been visiting New Hampshire quite a bit lately. The Granite State just so happens to be the state that holds one of the nation’s first presidential primaries. So, gee. How did Ehrlich happen to find himself giving speeches in New Hampshire?
It all started pretty organically. I got invited to go to New Hampshire this summer and from that, been back a couple more times. I’ll be going up for a fourth time in a couple weeks in addition to other states, so it’s been interesting how it developed.
Speaking of invitations and presidential ambitions, current Governor Martin O’Malley may be feeling a little left out. According to the Baltimore Sun, U.S. Senator Barbara Mikulski spoke up at an event Monday night for a group backing a Hillary Clinton candidacy. The event was held on O’Malley’s home turf in Baltimore, and Mikulski was quoted firing up the troops to “mobilize.” Fortunately for O’Malley’s own presidential hopes, other big-time Maryland Dems, including U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin, sat the event out.
