Bill Clinton Helping O'Malley's 2010 Campaign

Former President Bill Clinton, who came to the aid of Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) late in the 2006 governor's race, is helping him get an early start on 2010.

Clinton is scheduled to appear at an O'Malley fundraiser Wednesday night in New York at the home of investment banker James Passin and his wife, Sydney, according to O'Malley aides.

O'Malley's relationship with the Clintons dates back to his days as mayor of Baltimore. Clinton cut a campaign ad for O'Malley when he ran for governor in 2006 and appeared at a spirited rally for Maryland Democrats shortly before that year's election.

O'Malley was the second sitting governor to endorse Hillary Clinton for president in the 2008 cycle, appearing with the then-New York senator at an event in Annapolis.

O'Malley has yet to draw a big-name opponent in his re-election bid next year, but he has started assembling a campaign organization and is actively raising money in advance of the 2010 legislative session, when the law will require him to go dark.
