As Maryland Goes,...

From a recent Opinion Journal piece. An excerpt:

[F]our years after becoming the Old Line State's first Republican governor since Spiro Agnew became vice president in 1969, Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. is in a strong position to win re-election this fall. He's raising plenty of money (including $1 million in one night at a fundraiser headlined by President Bush), is quietly cheered on by middle-of-the-road Democrats, and enjoys surprisingly high approval ratings. His approval rating has reached as high as 67%, and at the end of the Legislature's regular session in April--when ratings are typically at low ebb--he was polling at 55%.

This from a state who voted for Kerry 2 to 1 over Bush. Who says there is no hope for conservatives in a state like, ahem, Rhode Island?
