It was the kind of media scrum you see in movies. A crowd of perhaps 20 reporters and videographers was chasing a source who didn’t want to talk.
That was the scene at High Point High School in Beltsville Monday at noon, as Attorney General Doug Gansler scooted into a waiting SUV with a state trooper at the wheel. Supporters had run interference as the AG made his exit.
The typically talkative Gansler had just been speechifying to these reporters as he announced his running mate for lieutenant governor, Del. Jolene Ivey, an alumna of this Prince George’s County high school. Ivey too, after her acceptance speech, hopped quickly into a private black Cadillac Escalade.
