ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A spokesman for Attorney General Doug Gansler's campaign for governor says Gansler will hold a news conference to discuss his brief appearance at a teenage party at a Delaware beach house.

The Baltimore Sun obtained a photo it published Thursday that shows Gansler at the party. In an interview with the Sun, Gansler said he doesn't remember whether he saw drinking but that if he had, it wasn't his responsibility to intervene.

A Gansler campaign spokesman says the candidate will talk this afternoon in Silver Spring about what happened.

Gansler's campaign is going through a rough patch. The Washington Post published a story last week about Maryland State Police describing Gansler as directing troopers protecting him to bypass traffic by driving on the shoulder and presenting other safe-driving concerns.
