    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Monday endorsed former Maryland Gov. Robert Ehrlich in the state's GOP gubernatorial primary, pitting him against his former presidential running mate, Sarah Palin.

McCain told the Associated Press that Ehrlich is a "fine guy" and that he is backing his shot at another term in office. The Maryland governor's primary is one of the first in which McCain and Palin have found themselves supporting opposing candidates. Palin has endorsed...

    BETHESDA, Md. - When candidates are vying for votes it can be hard to get them to agree on issues. But WTOP managed to get all the major candidates in the Maryland governor's race to make the same pledge: Not to distract drivers by waving campaign signs at them. This pledge comes after political volunteers created 10 miles of delays on Interstate 270 last week by waving signs from the Falls Road overpass. Some drivers were furious about the delays. Others believe roadside distractions of any kind are a hazard that can cause crashes. "We would never condone stopping traffic."...

    Conservative darling and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has endorsed gubernatorial candidate Brian Murphy today, according to a post on her Facebook page. It is the first Palin endorsement in Maryland. Murphy is running for the state GOP nomination as a more conservative alternative to Republican former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., who has most of the establishment GOP support in the state. So far, Murphy has not shown up in polls or had much of an impact on the race, but in other states a nod from Palin has given outlying candidates momentum. On the stump Murphy says both...
  • Sarah Palin Endorsement: Brian Murphy for Maryland Governor

    I’m honored to endorse Brian Murphy for Governor of Maryland. Brian is a pro-life, pro-Second Amendment commonsense conservative and a firm believer in the free market and the cause for energy independence. As a former energy industry executive and current small business owner, Brian has the private sector experience that is so lacking in government today. He knows how to incentivize industry to get our economy moving again. Together with his running mate for lieutenant governor, Mike Ryman, Brian will provide Maryland with principled and results oriented leadership.
