MD Senator Rob Garagiola Announces State Legislative Endorsements for Congress (CD6)

UPDATE:  The Baltimore Sun followed-up with one incorrect endorsement: "Del. Kevin Kelly, an Allegany County Democrat, said in an e-mail that he is not endorsing any candidate in the race. The mix up appears to have been a case of miscommunication." 

Maryland Juice also thought it was worth mentioning that the press release below was emailed by Morton Brilliant at the Strategy Group: "The Strategy Group was the only mail firm that worked for the Obama campaign in the primary, and the only mail firm responsible for mail in 9 of the final 16 targeted states in the general." Remember that Duchy Trachtenberg appears to have retained Howard Dean manager Joe Trippi for consulting services. The big boys & girls are coming to MoCo! *cough* *cough* Don't get too cozy here!
