A reader reminds us that “Mfume was endorsed by MSTA on Saturday, and overwhelmingly (80%+ of the vote).”

Amid discussion of a new campaign manager for O'Malley, the Post reports "A poll last month by Gonzales Research & Marketing Strategies, for example, showed O'Malley leading by nine percentage points among likely Democratic primary voters. Another statewide poll, conducted about the same time by OpinionWorks, showed a margin of 17 points."

Anthony Brown is claiming that he and O'Malley will beat Duncan in Montgomery County.

And it seems that the Baltimore City Council President is looking for a CoS and a Coms person, but can't seem to find good people.
