Martin O'Malley announces dozens of Md. endorsements

Frosh, Kamenetz, Baker and Leggett among those backing O'Malley for president.

Presidential candidate Martin O'Malley announced more than three dozen endorsements from his home state of Maryland on Tuesday as he rolled out leadership teams in 21 states.

Some of the officials backing O'Malley's long shot bid for president have previously announced their support, including Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh and Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker.

Others, including several state lawmakers, have not previously stated their support for a candidate.

Most of the state's federal elected leaders -- including its two U.S. senators -- are supporting front runner Hillary Clinton for the nomination, despite their longstanding relationship with O’Malley, a two-term governor of Maryland.  Clinton is also out-polling O'Malley in Maryland.
