Biographical Note

Robert Ehrlich (1957-) was elected as Maryland governor in 2003 and served until 2007. He was the Republican candidate and ran against Democrat and incumbent lieutenant governor Kathleen Kennedy Townsend. Michael Steele (1958-) was his running mate, who at the time was the chairman of the Maryland Republican Party. He was Maryland’s first African-American lieutenant governor. Ehrlich had previously served in the United States House of Representatives for Maryland’s second district. He and Steele lost their bid for a second term to former Baltimore mayor Martin O’Malley, but both continued their political careers in different capacities.
