    The parlay over how to hold debates in Maryland's governor's race is on again.

    Republican Robert Ehrlich on Thursday proposed holding five debates with Gov. Martin O'Malley before the general election in November. Two of the debates would on television, and three would be on radio.

    Ehrlich prefers debates with no time limits on responses, and all five of his proposals include that as a stipulation.

    Tom Russell, O'Malley's campaign manager, said the governor looks forward to debating "whoever is the Republican nominee after the primary." Maryland's primary is Sept. 14.

    O'Malley's campaign suggested holding a debate on WBAL-Radio in April, but the debate never happened because the two sides could not agree on the terms.
