WOODLAWN — Gov. Martin O’Malley and former Gov. Robert Ehrlich are expressing their differing opinions on the federal health care reform law.

The two met for their third debate of the 2010 Maryland governor’s race on Thursday on Larry Young’s radio show on Baltimore’s WOLB-AM.

Ehrlich, a Republican, says he opposes the country’s move toward what he described as a European-style health care system that is deeply flawed and unaffordable.

O’Malley, a Democrat, supports the legislation, and says he wants Maryland to be a leader in implementing the reforms.

The debate is the first radio debate between the two in this year’s race. A fourth debate on Washington’s WTOP-FM previously scheduled for Friday has been postponed. The station says it’s working with the candidates to reschedule it for next week.
