Maryland Challenges

The Post reports that Democratic congressional candidate Ann Tamlyn is dropping out of the race for Maryland's 1st CD after being chosen in a March primary. Citing illness, she is leaving the longshot campaign against Rep. Wayne T. Gilchrest (R) to a new nominee to be chosen by the local parties.

And it seems that former state legislator and anti-tax advocate Robin Ficker is organizing a Republican primary challenge to Gov. Bob Ehrlich in 2006 and is advertising for a running mate.
