Yes, it can spread.....with early blight or leaf spot, best is to only handle the plants that already have it while trying to control it (clipping off leaves, etc.) and then before touching the unaffected plants, wash your hands and tools in bleach or milk. Also, be sure to remove the affected leaves far away from the garden area, as it will get into the soil.
Late blight, the plant most likely will be lost, and again, be careful handling it and dispose of it somewhere away from the garden (and NOT in the compsot for any of these).
It is funny that the Ramapo doesn't have it, as it is one of the varities most prone to it, and in fact, the one of two plants of Ramapo that I have are suffering from it the worst.
