Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, a 2016 White House aspirant trying to win backing in the first Southern presidential primary state, is sending four aides from his political-action group to help the S.C. Democratic party with the November election.
The aides from O'Malley's O'Say Can You See PAC will work on all races, not just on the top-ticket tilts for governor and lieutenant governor, state party spokesman Kristin Sosanie said. They will work on communications and building the party's grassroots network, she said. CNN first reported the news.
No other outside Democratic group has offered staffing help to the state party, Sosanie said.
