In the wake of the shellacking they took in this month’s elections, Democrats are trying to get their fundraising houses in order. So it is that Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley has been tapped as the new chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, a knowledgeable source tells Politico.

That gives the Democrats a successful fundraiser and campaigner to spearhead their gubernatorial campaign effort. O’Malley is a rising Democratic star who served as vice chairman of the DGA during this year’s campaign at the same time that he gained re-election himself.

Under current chairman and Delaware Gov. Jack Markell, the DGA raised $50 million for this year’s campaign, less than half the $102 million generated by the Republican Governors Association. Three states have gubernatorial races in 2011: Kentucky, Louisiana and Mississippi.
