CROFTON, MARYLAND – Yesterday, Brian Murphy, Republican Candidate for Governor of Maryland, received the endorsement of Governor Sarah Palin. Bob Ehrlich, Murphy’s opponent, replied to the endorsement with a statement confirming Ehrlich’s intention to distance himself from Republican voters and Republican ideals.
“Ehrlich did not seek out [Palin’s] endorsement… [Ehrlich] has never been captive to one particular ideology,’” read an Ehrlich campaign release.
Today, Murphy issued the following statement:
“Bob Ehrlich has distanced himself from every core Republican principle, even though it is those principles which will mend Maryland’s economy. Maryland’s ‘stagnant economy’ and ‘tax-and-spend cycle’ are by-products of the reckless policies of the last eight years,” said Murphy.
“This is exactly the problem with American politics. Bob Ehrlich continues to say whatever he thinks the people want to hear. He claims to have fought for lower taxes and smaller government, but as Governor he raised taxes by $3 billion and grew our government more than any governor in history,” said Murphy.
“Further, Ehrlich refuses to pledge not to raise taxes. Maryland can’t afford four more years of Ehrlich-O’Malley tax-and-spend culture,” said Murphy.
Democrats Continue Ruinous Economic Policies,
Special Interest Payoffs While Americans Suffer
(Salisbury) – Republican small businessman and Eastern Shore native Rob Fisher released the following statement regarding today’s sobering economic news:
“Last month our economy lost another 131,000 jobs and unemployment remained alarmingly high at 9.5%, yet Nancy Pelosi and Frank Kratovil continue to pursue the same flawed and failing policies that have resulted in fewer jobs and mountains of debt for all Americans. If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results, this has to be the most absurd Congress in our history.
Since the passage of the so-called stimulus Maryland has lost over 14,000 jobs, but Kratovil and his fellow Democrats remain intent on rewarding the special interest groups that got them elected and pursuing economic policies that have failed throughout the world. It’s clear the only jobs career politicians are interested in saving are their own.
It’s time we held our representatives accountable for their actions. We need people in Washington who understand that small businesses, not the government, create jobs, and who will fight to fix our economy and get our fiscal house back in order. The First District deserves a Congressman who will listen to his constituents, stand up to career politicians and Put Maryland First.”
