Sargent Shriver Honored At DNC
Maryland Dems remember the late Peace Corps founder at luncheon.
Maryland Democrats gathered to remember Sargent Shriver Tuesday afternoon at a luncheon in Charlotte, N.C., during the Democratic National Convention.
The founder of the Peace Corps, 1972 vice presidential nominee and a Kennedy by marriage, Shriver lost a battle with Alzheimer’s disease and died last year -- but his life continues to inspire Democrats across the state. Memorial luncheon speakers included Gov. Martin O’Malley, Comptroller Peter Franchot, Maryland Democratic Party Chair Yvette Lewis, as well as Maryland and U.S. congressional representatives, the Washington Post reported.
