Former Governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. is keeping much of the Maryland political establishment in suspense these days, as he ponders whether to sign up for a fall rematch with Governor Martin O'Malley.

The latest word seems to be that he'll make an announcement in March. And many observers believe that this month's decision of Larry Hogan to give up on his potential gubernator bid is a clear sign that Ehrlich is leaning toward running.

And now comes word to Center Maryland that Team Ehrlich has stepped up its campaign on another front -- Facebook.

The "Bob Ehrlich" page is on a campaign to attract lots more friends and fans. The email being circulated to supporters promises that the Facebook page is "the best way to hear directly from Governor Ehrlich about what it will take to make Maryland strong and prosperous again. Bob has been busy meeting with folks like you across Maryland, but Facebook is an easy way to get his take on current events and to learn about his upcoming appearances."

And if you're lucky enough to be Friend Number 8,000, you'll even get a picture taken with the former governor. (The friends list was at about 7,300 as of early Thursday morning.)
