College Park, MD – Last night at a rally in College Park, nearly five months before the primary season begins, Presidential candidate Governor Howard Dean received the endorsements of 35 elected officials from across the State of
“The reasons we have all these endorsements are simple - Governor Howard Dean’s frank style and his positions on the critical issues of our time,” said Terry Lierman, Maryland for Dean Coordinator and national finance co-chair. “He has
drawn not just tremendous grassroots support in Maryland and across America but, the elected leaders closest to the people are enthusiastic as well.”
Nearly 6,000 Marylanders have already registered as volunteers at www.deanforamerica.com joining over 350,000 who have registered nationwide for the campaign they’ve come to know as “People-Powered Howard.”
“Howard Dean has attracted devotion from across the spectrum – it is diverse, broad and deep and the more people who discover what his presidency will mean to every American from every walk of life, the more support he gets,” says Maryland Del. Kurt Anderson of Baltimore City.
“He speaks to an America that is just, inclusive and common sense and that resonates will everyone, especially those in the Latino community,” says Maryland Del. Ana Sol Gutierrez of Montgomery County.
“There has never been another Democrat who has had this much grassroots support in any campaign in American history,” says Maryland Del. Peter Franchot, an early supporter of Gov. Dean who is co-coordinating the endorsement process in Maryland.
“This support continues to grow at a rapid pace and while that mean votes, it also means campaign contributions and almost unlimited buzz – the energy it takes to win,” says Walter Ludwig, Maryland for Dean Co-Coordinator.

Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
