O'Malley, Mikulski to speak at Rawlings-Blake campaign kick-off Monday
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake will officially announce her campaign to retain her seat Monday afternoon, according to her campaign.
Gov. Martin O'Malley, Sen. Barbara Mikulski and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown are slated to speak at the event, which will be held at the Ashburton home where Rawlings-Blake grew up and where her mother still lives today.
"We're just expecting a huge crowd of supporters," said campaign spokeswoman Keianna Page.
"Mayor Rawlings-Blake is very proud of where she comes from and you'll be able to see that."
Rawlings-Blake frequently touts the fact that she is a lifelong Baltimorean in her campaign ads. Her two leadings challengers-- former city planning director Otis Rolley and State Sen. Catherine Pugh-- both grew up out of state, he in New Jersey and she in Pennsylvania.
