O'Malley reaches out to voters in virtual town hall tonight
While the 2010 election is a year away, Gov. Martin O’Malley is already starting to reach out to voters as part of his re-election effort. He plans to host a virtual town hall tonight at 8 p.m. that will be streamed live on his Web site, www.martinomalley.com.
With the economy and jobs outlook likely to be at the forefront of the election, O’Malley’s camp says he’ll lay out a plan for “expanding opportunity and creating jobs.” He also will take questions from participants and address other issues, such as schools, roads, the environment and the strapped state budget. “No issue is off the table,” according to his campaign site.

O’Malley’s campaign has begun fund-raising and organizing as the Republicans have yet to coalesce around a candidate. Former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich has yet to announce a decision as to whether he would challenge O’Malley to a rematch. Other potential candidates are Larry Hogan, a former Cabinet member in Ehrlich’s administration, and Del. Patrick L. McDonough, a Baltimore County Republican.
