ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Maryland superdelegate who previously supported former Gov. Martin O’Malley has decided to support Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary for president.
Yvette Lewis, a former Maryland Democratic Party chair, told The Associated Press on Tuesday she believes the former secretary of state would bring experience to the White House. Lewis says she thinks Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has brought important issues and energy to the campaign, but she believes Clinton “can put the most impressive face of America out there for the world to see.”READ MORE: Summer Surge: As Coronavirus Infections Rise In Maryland, Some Reveal Why They Won’t Get Vaccine; Hogan Says ‘Breakthrough’ Infections Under 1%
