Halperin's blog is reporting that Kathleen Kennedy Townsend (a Clinton supporter) got one of the MD add-on spots...

...and the other MD add-on is former Gov. Parris Glendening, an Obama supporter.

Just posted. thanks for the tips.

Dan said...

...and Halperin is also reporting that DNC Brian Colon (NM) just endorsed Obama...

Busy weekend! Even more exciting than the derby!

Kennedy Townsend is a Clinton supporter and campaigned for her in Pennsylvania, but she hasn't always been so impressed with the way the campaign's been run. Shortly after Wisconsin she said Clinton was finished because of poor campaign decisions. As I said, she's still a Clinton supporter but I thought it was interesting to see such frank thoughts.

Better source for the Colon endorsement:

Are we still expecting to hear about an add-on from Louisiana?

Patrick said...

Mayor Ray Nagin of New Orleans is the new Louisiana add-on. He is uncommitted per local press accounts.

Look for Sen. Sherrod Brown (OH) to endorse by the end of next week.

Thanks for all you do!

Matt, Oreo,
The Guam Pacific Daily News reports that the Lujan/Paulino ticket has won. Do you have strong enough sourcing to put Paulino in the Obama column? Are you sure that their terms begin before Denver?

Joe said...

Who will Sherrod Brown be endorsing and where did you learn this?

Matt said...

Derek - We have multiple sources that the terms begin before Denver. Haven't look yet whether the Paulino sources are sufficient. We'll have everything updated in the next few hours.

Matt said...

We're looking for a good source for Glendening for Obama. Thanks.

Galois said...

I know this source doesn't satisfy your criteria for Glendening, but it is interesting. Apparently the two campaigns worked out a deal in Maryland so that they would each get one of the add-ons in promotion of unity. There are other good sources of Glendening endorsing Richardson.
