President Obama showed up to Bowie State University in Maryland to speak at a re-election rally for the state’s Democratic governor Martin O’Mally. Although he spoke at Bowie State as a candiate Obama presence was the first time a sitting president ever spoke at the Maryland HBCU.
The president, the governor and Maryland’s Democratic congressional members used the platform to energize rally their party’s voting base ahead of the upcoming mid-term elections.
The politicians made their case for another four years in office citing policies that they’ve passed over the last couple of years such as Health Care Reform and the Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which they contend helped pull the economy out of the recession.
Experts are predicting that the Dems have an uphill battle to fight in order to keep majority control of the Senate and House of Representatives.
