ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) -- Former Republican Gov. Robert Ehrlich wants his old job back, and he's challenging the Democrat who ousted him four years ago in a rematch testing whether a blend of GOP, tea party and independent voters can make a difference in heavily Democratic Maryland.

At a rally in Rockville with about 100 supporters, Ehrlich contrasted himself with Gov. Martin O'Malley by saying he wants to cut the state's sales tax, which was raised from 5 percent to 6 percent under the O'Malley administration.
