In what feel like a response to the latest polling showing Baker trailing Jealous by 5 points…Former Gov. Martin O’Malley is endorsing Rushern Baker in Maryland’s Democratic primary for governor. This was reported from WTOP:
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Former Gov. Martin O’Malley is endorsing Rushern Baker in Maryland’s Democratic primary for governor.
O’Malley said Thursday the Prince George’s County executive has the integrity and ability to bring people together needed to be governor.
O’Malley, who served two terms, says he believes Baker is the candidate who is best able to “restore Maryland’s leadership in public education and make our children winners in a changing economy.”
O’Malley endorsed Baker at a news conference in front of the Maryland State House in Annapolis.

This late in the game, will it make a difference? Had it happened a month ago I would have said yes…but we are 6 days from early voting and I am not sure this will move the needle significantly…but one thing is for sure, this only helps Baker going forward in the primary.
Stay tuned for other big announcements…I am guessing there may be more coming up in the next few days.
