It looks like Maryland lieutenant governor Anthony Brown will be getting a lot of on the job training in his quest to succeed Gov. Martin O’Malley. From the Baltimore Sun:
Gov. Martin O’Malley is looking to strike gold this weekend in Boulder Colorado where he will give a keynote address at a Democratic county fundraiser.
O’Malley — who was just in San Francisco to raise money for same-sex marriage, the Dream Act and Democratic governors — will squeeze in the Colorado trip before making an appearance in Tampa. He’ll be there as a Democratic surrogate to provide on-site rapid response at the Republican National Convention.
The itinerary keeps moving from there … as the governor is also set to give a speech at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.
Expect more, not less, of the same for the next two years. O’Malley has squeezed most of what he can from the citizens of Maryland. It’s time to squeeze a larger constituency. For that, O’Malley needs to raise money from every lefty group he can lay his hands on.
