Maryland: Martin O’Malley Does Robocalls for Rob Garagiola
Posted at 9:29 a.m. on April 2, 2012
Over the weekend, the two top Democrats in Maryland’s 6th district primary deployed their highest profile surrogates to do robocalls.
District residents have been receiving calls from Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) vouching for state Senate Majority Leader Rob Garagiola.
Garagiola is locked in a fierce battle with businessman John Delaney. It was reported Sunday that President Bill Clinton has been making robocalls on behalf of Delaney.
O’Malley, who endorsed Garagiola on Thursday, noted Garagiola’s ”record of progress and effectiveness.”
“We need his leadership in Washington. He knows how to bring people together to get things done,” the governor says in the recorded call. “This election will be very close, and I’ll hope you’ll get out to vote for Rob Garagiola for Congress.”
Low voter turnout is expected Tuesday in the primary. The winner of this race will likely face Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R) in the general election. Roll Call rates the general election race as Leans Democratic.
