Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley is also focusing on the economy. He said he's targeting job creation to help the state recover from the recesssion. He also said he'll help homeowners avoid foreclosure by creating mandatory mediation between borrowers and lenders.
O'Malley still has another week before he reveals his latest budget proposal. But one group of activists is already protesting it.
The march is getting some steam from former Republican Gov. Bob Ehrlich, who advertised the demonstration on his radio show Saturday. As you'll recall, O'Malley defeated Ehrlich for the governor's mansion in 2006. Now Ehrlich is weighing a re-match.
