Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley will pay for more than two dozen staffers to work on Democratic campaigns in Iowa, New Hampshire, and several other states ahead of the midterm elections this fall, his spokesperson confirmed Monday.
The move to dispatch campaign workers, first reported by the Washington Post, signals the extent to which O’Malley is pursuing a possible White House bid.
The governor’s spokesperson, Lis Smith, would not discuss details about how many staffers would travel to which states. But she said the staffers would be helping Senate and gubernatorial campaigns across the country, including those races in Iowa and New Hampshire, the states that host the first caucuses and primary.
