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.
