O'Malley/Brown Set-Up Underway

It's a gorgeous day on the Inner Harbor and a fantastic location at the American Visionary Arts Museum where the O'Malley/Brown team has just begun to set up shop for Maryland's gubernatorial race.

Today, Governor Martin O'Malley faces former Governor Robert Ehrlich in a heated competition.  With voter turnout in Maryland forming at a steady pace,The Baltimore Business Journal reports that both campaigns have turned to social media to spread the word and get residents to the polls.

O’Malley’s Twitter feed, @GovernorOMalley, started blasting tweets at 6:30 a.m. telling voters: “Polls open in a half hour. Are you ready to move #md4ward? #mdvote”

At the same time, Ehrlich’s Twitter feed, @Ehrlich4MD, posted comments from voters who declared their support for the former Republican governor who was ousted by O’Malley, a Democrat, in 2006. Ehrlich posted a picture of himself voting in Annapolis, asking “Have you voted yet?”

Senator Barbara Mikulski is expected to appear at the museum tonight, showing her support for fellow democrats Gov. Martin O'Malley and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown.
