Obama rally planned for Brown in Maryland

ANNAPOLIS — Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown’s campaign for governor is set to get a boost with a planned visit from President Barack Obama.

State Sen. Paul Pinsky said Tuesday that a rally is planned in Prince George’s County. Pinsky, a Prince George’s County Democrat, says Maryland Democrats were given notice to inform supporters of the event, which is scheduled for Sunday afternoon in Upper Marlboro.

Justin Schall, Brown’s campaign spokesman, declined to comment.

Obama campaigned for Gov. Martin O’Malley in 2010 during a stop at Bowie State University. At that rally, the president and the governor appealed to voters to make it to the polls on Election Day, after low turnout in the primary. Turnout also was low in the primary this year.
