President Barack Obama is set to stump for Gov. Martin O'Malley on Thursday at Bowie State University, O'Malley's campaign confirmed Friday. The event is planned for the afternoon, though the O'Malley team could not be more specific about the time.
Obama's stop could excite the African-American voters whom O'Malley, a Democrat, is counting on in his contest against Republican former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. The president has also cut a 60-second radio ad for O'Malley, praising the governor on his handling of education and the economy.
