David Sloan, executive director of the Maryland Democratic Party for the last four years, said late Thursday that he is leaving that post.
The announcement, made via email, comes just a month after Maryland Democrats scored some noteworthy successes in the November election. In addition to winning the state for President Obama with 62 percent of the vote, the party held on to the congressional seats held by U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin and its incumbent representatives while capturing the 6th District seat held by Republican Rep. Roscoe Bartlett.
Sloan did not disclose his future plans. The executive director is the party's chief paid staff member.
