On Sunday I posted the Gov. O'Malley is likely to endorse marriage. He has since announced that it will be part of his legislative package he will fight for when Annapolis reconvenes.

Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley on Friday announced he will sponsor a gay marriage bill in the next regular session of the General Assembly in January.

The governor made his remarks at a 2PM press conferences in Annapolis.

“Marylanders of all walks of life want the same thing – for their children to live in a loving, stable, committed home – protected under the law,” he tweeted to his more than 8,500 followers.

“In the 2012 legislative session, I will sponsor legislation that protects religious freedom & equality of martial rights under the law,” he added moments later.

Maryland was the 7th state in the union and soon it can soon be the 7th state with marriage equality.

Wanted to share the good news with other Kossacks here and ask locals to send a thank you email to Gov. Martin O'Malley ( or call 410.974.3901.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
