MAUGANSVILLE - Democratic gubernatorial candidate Martin O'Malley stopped in Washington County on Wednesday for a "get out the vote" rally at a labor hall.
Accompanied by running mate Anthony Brown, O'Malley urged party faithful to treat the remaining days of the campaign with high importance.
Although Western Maryland leans Republican - Gov. Robert Ehrlich captured nearly 70 percent of Washington County's vote four years ago - O'Malley said it's as important as any other part of the state.
O'Malley, who is on a late-campaign bus tour with Brown, cited three newspaper polls in the last several days that have him leading Ehrlich.
