Governor O'Malley today released the following statement on President Obama's State of the Union address:
"President Obama's focus on strengthening and growing our middle class tonight was right-on. In Maryland, we share many of the President's priorities, including expanding opportunity, creating high-paid and high-skilled jobs, and lifting more people out of poverty by raising the minimum wage."
"The only way we will grow our economy is by growing our middle class. It's time for the Republican Congress to acknowledge this fundamental truth and work with the President to move our country forward."
