McIntosh To Endorse Van Hollen

Take away the question mark from what I wrote yesterday. If John Fritze writes it then it’s going to happen. And he also adds an important point about Maggie McIntosh’s history with Barbara Mikulski.

McIntosh’s support is significant for several reasons, not the least of which is she has long been viewed as close to Mikulski. Prior to winning her election to the House of Delegates in 1992, McIntosh served as Mikulski’s campaign manager and state director.

Mikulski has not taken a position in the race to succeed her.

BREAKING: McIntosh To Endorse Van Hollen?

According to WBAL reporter Robert Lang , Delegate Maggie McIntosh, the powerful chair of the House Appropriations Committee, will endorse Chris Van Hollen for Senate tomorrow. As Lang notes, it appears that McIntosh will be the first Baltimore elected official to endorse either Van Hollen or Donna Edwards in the 2016 primary.

H/T Neal Carter for alerting me to Lang’s tweet.
