At the end of a rough week for Democrats, Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) on Friday wasn’t quite ready to let go of his party’s loss in the attempted recall of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R).
Republicans’ 7-to-1 spending advantage made the contest something less than a fair fight, O’Malley said in his first extensive remarks on the outcome of the Badger State ballot. As chair of the Democratic Governors Association, O’Malley was among key Democratic fundraisers working to unseat Walker.
