Gazette Spotlights Maryland Political Punditry... from Virginia

The Gazette's website headline yesterday said, "Pundit: Ehrlich would win a Feb. 5 general election."

But the article relies on opinion from Larry Sabato, a professor based in Virginia. Maryland has many political pros with tons of sources and data - all from this state - on both sides of the fence. So why does the Gazette credit a Virginia professor who does not live here and is not part of our political scene over our homegrown commentators? Don't they know which state they are covering?
