Ralph Jaffe: Still running for governor

Erin Cox's report on the GOP gubernatorial primary strikes out again ("Lollar launches campaign for governor," Sept. 3). Why doesn't she get it?

Ms. Cox points out that the field is widening, with several candidates — including two other Republicans and several announced Democratic candidates — all vying to replace term-limited Gov. Martin O'Malley.

But again she failed to include my name. Well, here's a news flash: I am also running for governor. Why doesn't Ms. Cox read her own newspaper?

Surely by now she should know that in the race for governor I am the only ethical candidate because I refuse to take campaign contributions, which are disguised bribes, and because I will serve only one term if elected.

In baseball, it's three strikes and you're out. Let's hope the next time Ms. Cox writes an article about the candidates running for governor, she will get it right instead of striking out.
