Brown Fills In While O'Malley Plays With Band
Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown (D) pinch hit last night for Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) on the monthly live Maryland Public Television call-in program, "Ask the Governor."
The reason for the governor's absence? As Brown explained to viewers at the top of the show, O'Malley was playing a concert with his Celtic rock band, O'Malley's March, for soliders at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
"I'm sure it's going to be a fun time," Brown said.
The balance of the half-hour show was devoted largely to discussion of issues that are a priority for Brown this legislative session, including a pair of bills that place new restrictions on gun possession by domestic abusers. Those bills have passed the House of Delegates and Brown said he is "optimistic" they will clear the Senate and be sent to O'Malley.
In response to host Jeff Salkin, Brown also addressed his own immediate political future. Rumors were prevalent a few weeks ago about Brown taking a post in the Obama administration but have since died down.
"My goal is to continue serving as lieutenant governor," Brown said. "I'm committeed to the governor, running for re-election in 2010."
