WASHINGTON (AP) — The country’s 20 Democratic governors have re-elected Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley as head of their national political organization.

The Washington Post reported the step was taken by the Democratic Governors Association on Tuesday at their winter meeting in Los Angeles. It is rare for a governor to serve two terms.

The report says the move assures O’Malley a national voice leading up to the 2012 election. The Post reports 11 states, including eight now controlled by Democrats, will hold elections for governors in 2012.

As association chairman, O’Malley will be responsible for outside fundraising for those races. The Post reported that O’Malley expressed confidence that by focusing on job creation and demonstrating that Democratic governors have been effective in office, the party can be widely successful in 2012.

    When is he going to start doing his job in Maryland? Job creation? Failing to enforce law on illegals? Showing he is an effective governor for all the people of Maryland? Stop wasting taxpayer money on useless foreign trips? I could go on and on, but we all see how he has taken this state down.

    Apparently the Democratic Govenor’s Assoc. is as dumb as MD voters.

    This position is water boy for OBama & OweMalley is good at sucking up. When is he going to start doing his job? Please, never I hope, he’s f….k’d up enough already without even trying.

  4. sick of maryland says:

    If O’Malley is the best that the Democratic states have to offer maybe there is hope yet. 30 states with republican governors is another bit of good news The Democratic takeover in 2007 flopped big time.
