Watch Maryland Governor O'Malley Debate Ehrlich Tonight

George Wenschhof

The debate is over between Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley (D) and former Maryland Governor Robert Ehrlich (R). Early reports of the debate, taped by Baltimore WJZ TV and moderated by Denise Koch earlier today, have O'Malley winning easily. It will be aired at 7:00 PM ET tonight on Baltimore channel 13.

This is a grudge rematch of the 2006 election won by O'Malley with O'Malley leading in a recent Washington Post poll by 11 points.

The debate reportedly was heated at times when the topics covered property taxes and education. The Baltimore Sun has more here.

O'Malley stuck around after the debate and chatted it up with reporters while Ehrlich left via a back door without speaking to reporters.

In the all important spin war, the O'Malley campaign website already has a Blog post published entitled "O'Malley Wins 1st Debate.......". You can read the post here.

The Ehrlich campaign website counters with "Ehrlich Scores Decisive Win..." which you can read here.

Make sure you tune in tonight as this is the only televised debate between the two candidates prior to the election on November 2.
