Yes. I have been volunteering for the Ehrlich campaign, and I have been assured that there will be GOP monitors at the Baltimore polling places (I assume those are the ones you are referring to)
I agree that this is the most important part of Ehrlich's campaign.
Tom Marr once observed that the GOP observers in some of the questionable districts were "Republicans in name only." I hope we have a handle on this.
If Bob uses Bush, look for Kathy to invoke her deceased family in ads to push the buttons of the faithful
My fear is this: with the race being so close, and the choices so clear, the DIM establishment will only need to do a little tweaking to put enough votes over, ala '94. And with them running the whole show, there will be nowhere we can find justice ("takin' it to the streets?" :-) )
