Md. Primary Could Play a Role in O'Malley's Future

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - This Maryland primary has importance beyond deciding who the Democratic and Republican nominees will be in the governor's race. It also is significant to Gov. Martin O'Malley, a Democrat considering running for president in 2016.

A victory by Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown in the Democratic primary Tuesday and a win in November would put an ally in place at home for O'Malley. Brown is running against Doug Gansler, attorney general, and Heather Mizeur, a delegate in the Maryland House.

Brown would be an O'Malley advocate to fend off Republican attacks on tax increases approved during his administration. Brown also would be positioned to carry on improvements to the state's badly troubled health care exchange website in the next enrollment period, rather than a candidate who has criticized the outcome.
