Washington (CNN) - This rematch is getting interesting.

Former Maryland Gov. Robert Ehrlich on Wednesday kicked off his bid to get his old office back. The person he's challenging is current Gov. Martin O'Malley - the man who knocked him out of office four years ago.

"Welcome to history, part two," Ehrlich, a Republican, told a crowd in Rockville, Maryland, which is located in the heavily Democratic Montgomery County.

Ehrlich was scheduled to hold a rally later Wednesday in Baltimore County, the area he represented in Congress for eight years.

    It is interesting that Ehrlich like so many other Republicans feel that the coming elections will grant them a shoe in victory. Because they feel folks are so upset with Washington based on those idiot Tea Party folks. LOL

    We had Ehrlich before so why in the world do we need go back to that again.

    I hope O'Malley holds onto the seat. These republicans are trying to finish the job of destroying this country.

    Ehrlich who? Are you kidding me? Republicans continue to recycle a bunch of LOSERS over and over again. Case and point with Ehrlich, Brown, McCain, etc.

    BRING IT ON!!!

    Ever since O'Malley took office, the sales tax, the property tax all went up; Surprised people still want to support O'Malley.

    We need Ehrlich back to put the taxes back to the previous.
