HAGERSTOWN -- This year, Maryland Democrats have "M.O.M.," the party chair said Wednesday in Washington County.
Chairwoman Susan W. Turnbull said the party is well positioned in money, organization and message, the three parts of the M.O.M. acronym.
The Democratic Party in Maryland has more money than it's ever had going into an election, she said at Wednesday's annual Jefferson-Jackson Dinner.
Those factors, she said, will steer the party as it attempts to re-elect its main "MOM" - Gov. Martin O'Malley.
O'Malley's second in command, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, was the keynote speaker at this year's Jefferson-Jackson Dinner, an annual celebration and rallying point for Democrats in counties across the state.
About 125 local Democrats attended Washington County's event at Hagerstown Elks Lodge #378 on Robinwood Drive.
Brown spoke of the accomplishments of the O'Malley administration in education, fiscal management and other areas.
But, "we can't do this alone. Elections matter," he said.
