O'Malley win greeted with cheers and applause at victory party

As news outlets began projecting the governor's race on large-screened TVs, bursts of cheers and applause filled the American Visionary Arts Museum in Baltimore, where hundreds of Gov. Martin O'Malley's supporters had gathered.

Attorney General Doug Gansler (D) said O'Malley's opponent, former governor Robert Ehrlich (R), had failed to "offer a solution or an alternative that got any traction," and that he had suffered from getting into the contest too late in a state with a large, well-funded Democratic party operation.

"He had to spend an awful lot of time raising money, and wasn't able to get out whatever message he might be trying to convey," Gansler said as the theme song from the movie "Rocky" blared in the background and supporters waited to hear from O'Malley. Gansler himself was unopposed for a second term.
