O’Malley Retreats With Supporters, Raises $125,000 For Congressional Democrats

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) gathered with more than 100 of his supporters this weekend for a retreat on the Eastern Shore that included a fundraiser that netted more $125,000 for five Democratic congressional candidates, participants said.

The two-day event in Easton comes as O’Malley prepares for a possible 2016 presidential run. But those attending the closed-press gathering said there was little overt talk about a White House bid. Instead, much of the focus was on the governor’s record in Maryland, the national political scene more broadly and O’Malley’s efforts to help fellow Democrats get elected around the country this year.

To that end, O’Malley’s retreat agenda included a fundraiser Sunday featuring House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) that benefited three Democratic incumbents as well as two Democrats running in Republican-held districts, all outside Maryland.

Pelosi, a Baltimore native whose late father, Thomas D’Alesandro Jr., is a former mayor of the city, also attended a dinner Saturday night that was part of the retreat sponsored by O’Malley’s political action committee, known as O’ Say Can You See.

125K for a fundraiser is nothing. The Clinton machine will run him over if that is all he can attract.
