Gov. Martin O'Malley will be in Baltimore this afternoon to campaign for two candidates -- Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and De'Von Brown, a college senior running for the City Council.
At 3, O'Malley will talk with Brown supporters at Terra Cafe on the 2500 block of St. Paul Street. Brown became close with O'Malley and his wife, Judge Katie O'Malley, after he was featured in the documentary "The Boys of Baraka" several years ago.
A senior at Maryland Institute College of Arts, Brown is vying for the 12th District seat currently occupied by Carl Stokes. Other challengers include community activist Odette Ramos, Mt. Vernon-Belvedere Association President Jason Curtis and labor leader Jermaine Jones.
At 5, O'Malley will head to Belvedere Square to stump for Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, his long-time political ally. Rawlings-Blake and O'Malley have been closely allied since they both served on the council together.
