BALTIMORE (AP) — A newspaper is reporting that Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley’s brother, Patrick, is apparently going against the governor on two election points.
The Baltimore Sun reports that Patrick O’Malley is backing Republican Senate candidate Dan Bongino. The Sun also reports that Patrick O’Malley has signed a petition to put the state’s same-sex marriage law on the ballot.
Patrick O’Malley, who is a registered Democrat, declined to comment to the newspaper at his Baltimore home, where he reportedly has placed two “Bongino for Senate” signs on his lawn.
The governor pushed for the same-sex marriage law in this year’s legislative session. Opponents succeeded in gathering enough signatures to put the measure on the ballot for voters to decide.
A spokesman for the governor also declined to comment to the newspaper.
