Buono lands in Los Angeles for DGA conference

Late Sunday night, state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18) landed in Los Angeles in time for the start of today’s Democratic Governors Association (DGA) conference.

Buono is trying to get national level support toward a 2013 gubernatorial run with the group that recruits Democratic candidates for governor.

The governors will elect their new leadership at the conference. 

According to CNN, Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley is expected to win another term.

"He’s obviously working very, very hard at it. I mean he’s traveling all over the country as chairman of the [Republican Governors Association] and I think at this point he has as good a chance or better than anybody else. His name is household word all across the country, and I think he would make a great president."
