Gov. Martin O'Malley Wins 2nd Term In Maryland

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Democratic incumbent Gov. Martin O'Malley won a second term in a rematch with Republican former Gov. Robert Ehrlich on Tuesday in a race that featured negative advertising and sniping debates between Maryland's two biggest political rivals.

O'Malley's victory provided a bright spot for Democrats suffering big losses in both congressional and governors' races. His first term was hampered largely by the recession, which made budget cuts routine over the last three years. Still, the governor emphasized throughout the campaign that he has worked hard to protect priorities in public safety and education while positioning Maryland to weather the recession better than most states.

Halloween Candy for Troops

This  year, make Halloween about more than just collecting or distributing candy for  kids to eat (or overeat!). Participate in Treats-4-Troops, a post-Halloween candy collection project by MoverMoms.  Donate any or all of it to US troops serving in Iraq , Afghanistan , and    Kuwait , and thereby:

    * TEACH kids about the joys of giving and sharing!

    * BRIGHTEN a soldier’s day!

    * GET the candy out of your house!

MoverMoms,  a Bethesda-based non-profit, will donate all candy to a West Virginia-based  non-profit that packs it in Christmas stockings for troops of all faiths.   Last year the candy that MoverMoms collected in DC,  Maryland and  Virginia filled over 11,000 stockings.
