Hey, Isn't That Mayor O'Malley?
Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley has no plans to endorse a fellow Democrat in the crowded 3rd Congressional District primary, but he appears in two pictures in the latest mailer sent out by hopeful Peter Beilenson.
Beilenson served as O'Malley's health commissioner before resigning to run for Congress. His glossy mailer does not mention O'Malley, who is now a gubernatorial candidate, by name. But in two photos he is clearly visible, standing behind Beilenson at what appear to be news conferences. O'Malley also appears in a photo on Beilenson's website.
The mailer tries to make the case that Beilenson's background as a public health official makes him uniquely qualified "to fix health care."
Though he is not supporting a candidate in the race, O'Malley has no problem with the mailer, said spokesman Rick Abbruzzese.
"Peter and the mayor together have a truly remarkable record on public health in the city," Abbruzzese said. "I don't think the mayor minds at all Peter promoting that record in his campaign."
