Environmental group to endorse O'Malley
The early nod is welcome news for O'Malley at a time when budget cuts have hampered the agendas of many left-learning interest groups, including environmentalists. O'Malley won praise from the group this week for including $20 million in his proposed budget for a Chesapeake Bay cleanup program that lawmakers are threatening to cut.
The League endorsed O'Malley in 2006 but not until the fall, after then-Montgomery County Executive Douglas M. Duncan (D) dropped out of the Democratic primary.
O'Malley has drawn a Democratic challenger this year: George W. Owings III, a former state veterans affairs secretary. The governor's Republican opponent remains unclear, as former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) continues to mull a rematch with O'Malley.
The League issued an advisory on Thursday, advertising "a major announcement" Friday. A representative of the group declined comment on the nature of the announcement.
