RGA getting jumpy in MD?
The organization cut at least one ad buy that supported Ehrlich, a former MD governor, in expensive D.C. market, but the group is still committed in Baltimore. A poll released today by Patrick Gonzales shows O'Malley with a commanding 40 point lead in the D.C. suburbs.
Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, a member of the RGA's executive committee, called late Monday after getting wind that The Sun was writing a story and said nothing should be read into week by week fluctuations with RGA ad buys. Early voting starts in Maryland this week.
He said the group, which just reported raising $31 million in three months, remains committed to Ehrlich and thinks he can win.
Most of this year's 37 governor's races are considered competitive and the RGA is also putting money into large and expensive states like California, Florida and Texas.
