ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Democratic Party has elected Kathleen Matthews to be the interim party chair.
The party voted for the Montgomery County resident Wednesday night.
Matthews is a former local television anchor who is married to MSNBC’s “Hardball” host Chris Matthews. She ran in last year’s primary for the 8th Congressional District, a race that was won by Rep. Jamie Raskin.
Matthews replaces outgoing chairman Bruce Poole, who served for two years.
The party will elect a chair to a four-year term in May.
