Jacobs picked the hour before kickoff of the Ravens game to do her sign-waving. She said she's been getting a great response and is predicting an upset victory in her bid for the 2nd District congressional seat despite a lack of financial support from national Republican campaign committees.
"They've written off Maryland as a state. They're not even helping Roscoe Bartlett, I think," she said.
While Jacobs waved, her Democratic opponent took the day off. Ruppersberger spokeswoman Jamie Lennon said the congressman went to church and watched the game as he regrouped for a full day of campaign events Monday.
Supporters of the Dream Act, which would allow some illegal immigrants to pay in-state college tuition rates, drew a crowd of about 150 to a rally in East Baltimore.
Hannah Holliday, a Spanish language teacher at Forest Park High School, came to the event with one of her students, junior, DaTonya Price. Holliday said she feels strongly about passing Question 4 because it would help many of her neighbors in Fells Point.
"A lot of my neighbors are Spanish speakers and new immigrants," she said.
One of those immigrants, Jonathan "J.J." Jayes-Green, told the crowd that he hadn't been able to attend the University of Maryland College Park under the current law. A native of Panama who was brought to the United State when he was 13, Jayes-Green said he was not eligible for in-state tuition because of his immigration status and could not afford out-of-state tuition. He said he since has been able to attend Goucher College on a private academic scholarship.
"You are a Marylander and we're proud of you," Cardin said. "We need J.J. educated."
