ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- As super storm Sandy made its way across Maryland late Monday night, state officials warned that the worst of the damage was yet to come. “We're America's weather in miniature today,” Gov. Martin O'Malley said at a news conference. “We've got the blizzard on one side. We've got the waves on the Atlantic, we've got the tidals and the flooding.” After making landfall near southern New Jersey with hurricane-force winds, Sandy was parked over Maryland, whipping the state with wind, rain and snow.

In a surprise move, North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue announced Thursday afternoon that she will not seek a second term this November. The Democrat said in a statement that she decided against a reelection bid so she could avoid further politicizing her fight with the state's Republican Legislature over school funding. "A reelection campaign in this already divisive environment will make it more difficult to find any bipartisan solutions," she said. Perdue becomes the third Democratic incumbent to decide against seeking a new term this year.

Maryland could become one of the first states to legalize same-sex marriage at the ballot box, a new poll by the Washington Post suggests. The survey found that 52% of Maryland's likely voters support Question 6, the “Civil Marriage Protection Act,” which would allow marriage licenses to be provided to same-sex couples. The measure is opposed by 43% and 5% had no opinion. The act stipulates that religious clergy or leaders will not be forced to perform marriage ceremonies for same-sex couples.
