Roger Berliner Joins Obama Ticket

Well, maybe not, but it sure seems that way from the District 1 incumbent's latest fund-raising solicitation. Berliner's links of his policy positions to Obama might be smart strategy considering that Obama won District 1 by a 44-point margin in the 2008 general election. Besides the ubiquitous Doug Gansler and other electeds, Berliner's host committee includes Choice Hotels Chairman Stewart Bainum, Leggett-connected lobbyist Barbara Goldberg-Goldman, developer and former Republican Josh Rales and former District 19 Delegate candidate Alec Stone, who does not live in county District 1. The presence of the first three showcases the incumbent's ability to raise money. We print Berliner's solicitation below.
