Ehrlich Sought by 2008 Maybes; Giuliani Seeks Governor's Aid


Byline: S.A. Miller, THE WASHINGTON TIMES

ANNAPOLIS - Maryland Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. yesterday disclosed that former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani and Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney have sought his input for their potential presidential campaigns, saying that his own re-election loss has not ended his career in Republican politics.

Mr. Ehrlich, who was Maryland's first Republican governor in 36 years, also said he had not ruled out another run for state office, including a possible campaign in 2010 to replace Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski, a Democrat.

Giuliani spokeswoman Sunny Mindel confirmed Mr. Giuliani has reached out to Mr. Ehrlich.

"Rudy has known the governor for quite a while and has great respect for him," she said.

Mr. Ehrlich yesterday praised Mr. Romney's "absolutely great" performance this year as chairman of the Republican Governors Association.
