ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland Democratic Party leaders have elected Kathleen Matthews to serve as state party chair through the 2018 general elections.

Members of the Democratic State Central Committee elected Matthews as chair on Saturday. She had been elected interim party chair on March 1, replacing D. Bruce Poole.

Matthews says the job of Maryland Democrats includes resisting President Donald Trump and defeating Governor Larry Hogan.


There have been concerns about Attorney General Beau Biden’s health as he gears up for a run for the governor’s chair in Delaware.

But his brother Hunter Biden told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell yesterday that Biden was “doing great”.

The Attorney General went to a cancer facility in Texas recently for a lesion on his brain.

Hunter Biden called it a scare but added his brother is back to work.
