O'Malley on Potomac Primary
If Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) was depressed that he wasn't able to pull it out for fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton in Maryland yesterday, he didn't show it today.
"It was a tremendous day with tremendous turnout," the governor told reporters this morning, using the word "exciting" several times to describe Maryland's Democratic primary. "What you see is an exciting process."
O'Malley and Lt Gov. Anthony Brown, early endorsers of Sen. Clinton (D-NY), campaigned for her across Maryland in the days leading up to the primary.
Asked if Barack Obama's victory was a personal defeat for him, O'Malley said no: "I always choose to get involved in presidential campaigns." He pledged to support the party's nominee, whoever wins.
But he dodged a question about whether he will cast his vote for Clinton at the Democratic National Convention this summer as one of the 796 superdelegates, saying only that the primary process is "playing out."
"There were superdelegates four years ago and four years before that," he said.
