Governor debate: Pep rallies in parking lot
The parking lot of WJZ-TV in Baltimore, where Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley and Republican former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich will soon begin their first debate of the campaign, is filled with supporters for both candidates.
The cheering throngs of green-T-shirted O'Malley supporters outnumber Ehrlich team members, but both have signs hoisted enthusiastically. Sen. Barbara Mikulski and Rep. Elijah Cummings both are on site, as is first lady Katie O'Malley. Both candidates are here.
The hourlong debate begins at 10 a.m. and will be broadcast at 7 tonight. Washington-area residents can watch it on Maryland Public Television. Want a preview? We'll tweet live this morning with the #mddebate hash tag.
