Nancy King's Campaign Claims Momentum

Nancy King's campaign manager, Amy Yockus Hartman, sent out the following email to supporters minutes ago.

Dear Friends,

With just about 60 hours until the polls open, our campaign has real momentum.

Nancy earned support from Montgomery County's teachers and retired teachers, police officers, and fire fighters. She secured endorsements from leading progressive organizations, including NARAL Pro-Choice Maryland, Equality Maryland, Maryland Association for Justice, SEIU Maryland & DC State Council, and Maryland State & DC AFL-CIO.

Governor Martin O'Malley and Lt. Governor Anthony Brown endorsed Nancy, because they rely on her in the fight to protect public education and make communities safer. Nancy secured support from County Executive Ike Leggett, State's Attorney John McCarthy, Sheriff Ray Kight, and School Board President Pat O'Neill. They know they can count on Nancy to deliver for Montgomery County.

The region's independent newspapers support Nancy. The Washington Post noted that Nancy has "the respect of colleagues who regard her as thoughtful." The Gazette said Nancy is "an advocate for the public school system and her efforts to preserve public school funding - including sponsoring a bill that waived the county's maintenance of effort penalties for fiscal 2010 - are commendable."

Nancy needs your help to ensure a victory on Tuesday. If you didn't vote early, please vote on Tuesday. The polls open at 7:00a.m. and close at 8:00p.m. If you're not sure where you vote, visit If you have time to volunteer on Election Day, please sign up here or call our office at 301-926-9070.
