Governors Tap O'Malley To Lead Fundraising
Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) has been named finance chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, a post that involves raising money for the party's gubernatorial hopefuls across the nation.
The appointment was made this week by West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin (D), the DGA's new chairman.
"He was just elected last year, but he's quickly become very well respected around the country," DGA spokesman Brian Namey said of O'Malley.
The post is the lastest to provide national exposure for O'Malley, who has been involved in several other groups with national reach, including the Democratic Leadership Council, since his days as mayor of Baltimore.
Besides helping other Democrats, the opportunity to engage donors on a national basis could prove helpful to O'Malley if he pursues higher office down the road.
