Clinton to star in Baltimore rally for O'Malley

The previously reported O'Malley campaign fundraiser featuring former President Bill Clinton will now also include a public rally, the governor's re-election campaign said.

O'Malley's team sent out an email, ostensibly from Clinton himself, inviting supporters to attend. It will be on Thursday Oct. 21 and the exact time and location are still to be determined, said campaign manager Tom Russell. The timing works well for the campaign's get out the vote efforts: It is the day before early voting starts.

Unlike in 2006 when Clinton's appearance for Gov. Martin O'Malley's election effort was one of the few campaign events the former President scheduled, this cycle he appears to be all over the place.

The photo on the left was taken Tuesday in Morgantown, W. Va. at a Clinton rally for Gov. Joe Manchin who is running for the seat that opened up when Sen. Robert Byrd died.

Clinton also stumped Tuesday for Jack Conway who is running against Rand Paul for a Kentucky Senate seat.

O'Malley also benefited last week from a rally with President Barack Obama.

And, though not connected with anyone's political campaign but continuing the theme of presidential love for Maryland, former President Jimmy Carter also made a recent stop in Annapolis to promote Habitat for Humanity, one of his pet causes.

Does Clinton support O'Malley's ideas for tax increases? The newest I've heard him talk about is increasing the gas tax

Can't the Dems find someone who has a better moral code to represent them!!
I guess once the stain is off the dress, people forget very quickly!! Sure you can trust anything Bill says, hmmm, OweMalley and Clinton are cut from the same Cheating cloth, who better to stand up for Martin.

Kim,

Bobby brings in Rudy "The Weasel" Giuliani who has a looooong history of womanizing and cheating. Dems don't have a monopoly on adultery. Just ask David "Diaperman" Vitter!!!

President Clinton still has the highest approval rating of any ex-President. Maybe the Ehrlich team should get George "Dubya" Bush to stump for Ehrlich? Ha ha!

And please, Republican's lecturing about moral code? Give me a break! How quickly you forget about the long list on the Con side including David "Hooker" Vitter, Larry "Bathroom Stall" Craig, and Mark "Argentina Mistress" Sanford (just to name a few!)

@kim muhlenfeld;

Let's tear down Clinton and Obama and elect nothing but spray-tanned and closeted conservatives. That oughtta root out corruption and level the income playing field.

Why is it ok for O'Malley to admit he made unnecessary arrests of blacks in the city? Why aren't more peope outraged?

Owe Malley needs to raise more taxes. His tax heist of '08 only cost md 3000+ business's. Not enough. Our illegal aliens need more jobs!!
Gov. Martin O'Malley called Maryland's lawmakers back to Annapolis late last year
For a special session of the General Assembly. O'malley pulled off one of the greatest tax heists in history.
At the end of the special session, the top personal and corporate tax rates were increased by 16 percent and 18 percent, respectively. And the sales tax, which kicked in on New Year's Day, jumped from 5 percent to 6 percent, a whopping 20 percent increase.

O'malley my buddy. You need to raise more taxes. We lost more than 3000 business because of your highest corporate tax heist of '08. If it was higher and we lost more business, my business would flourish..
