O'Malley makes final push by air, by dump truck


Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) continued campaigning at a breakneck speed through the weekend, making 20 stops and launching a series of final television ads.

With one day remaining, the governor seemed intent on closing out his reelection bid adhering to the familiar message of being "on the side" of Maryland's working families that he has maintained since polls four weeks ago showed him opening a double-digit lead over former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R)
On Saturday, the campaign passed the 300 mark for campaign stops and public appearances since August 1.

On Sunday, the governor attended church services and then continued a Baltimore tradition, riding around to get-out-the-vote rallies in a caravan of more than a dozen dump trucks. At his second to last stop, in a working-class neighborhood near Pimlico, O'Malley spoke for just four minutes, urging about 150 people in attendance to not let Maryland go back to the "disastrous ways" of former President George W. Bush. Lining the stage were O'Malley signs and ones that read "Obama, we've got your back." -- Aaron C. Davis

Another ode to Martin. The Post's coverage has been really one-sided this election. And what's worse is that it seems it will stay that way for the future.
