A Wave of Late Endorsements
Maryland politicians are offering a burst of late endorsements of presidential candidates in advance of Tuesday's primaries.
House Majority Leader Kumar P. Barve (D-Montgomery) and Montgomery County State's Attorney John McCarthy were among those stepping forward yesterday to announce their support of Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.).
"Some politicians earn respect through the force of ideas and policies," Barve said in a release distributed by the Obama campaign. "Others are natural leaders who inspire us to dream big. I believe Senator Obama can do both."
The Obama campaign now claims the endorsements of 150 elected officials in Maryland.
On the Republican side yesterday, John McCain's campaign announced the endorsement of Maryland House Minority Leader Anthony J. O'Donnell (R-Calvert), as well as eight state and local GOP party officials.
O'Donnell's backing of the Arizona senator puts him at odds with the No. 2 Republican in the House of Delegates, Minority Whip Christopher B. Shank (R-Washington), who was among those who joined Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor, at a rally in College Park yesterday.
