O'Malley To Keynote Pennsylvania Dinner

Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) is about to get a little more political exposure outside Maryland's borders.

O'Malley is billed as the keynote speaker tonight at the Pennsylvania Progressive Dinner in Camp Hill, hosted by the Democratic Party in the state to Maryland's north.

During an appearance on "The Politics Program" on WTOP radio this morning, host Mark Plotkin ribbed O'Malley about the planned trip, asking if he was already bored with his current job and now running for president. Plotkin cited a trip by O'Malley in June to New Hampshire, the traditionally first presidential primary state, where O'Malley stood in at an event for Hillary Clinton.

O'Malley, who took office in January, noted that he wasn't traveling that far tonight and was invited by Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell (R).

I'm reasonably certain that Gov Rendell should have a "D" next to his name not an "R."

Good save, Soccer Dad! Rendell is a Democrat...and even GOP folks from Phili and Pittsburg love the guy. PA is a pretty fair minded state, that really looks their politicians over closely. The state has larger-than-avg proportion of citizens serving in Iraq right now.

Thanks Donny. In 1681, Charles II granted a land charter to William Penn, which Pennsylvania is named after. It's also sometimes known as the Keystone state.
