By Stephanie Kaye

Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley is announcing a major drop in crime in the state as he campaigns to be re-elected to office.

Governor O'Malley plans on paying a visit to Lodge 89 of the Fraternal Order of Police this morning, located in Upper Marlboro, to announce the statewide drop in crime. As the Washington Post reports, statistics compiled by State Police show Maryland will drop out of the nation's 10 most dangerous states for the first time in more than 20 years.

But at a time when crime rates are dropping around the country, how much O'Malley's policies are responsible for the drop is unknown. The Governor faces a challenge to his re-election by Republican and former Maryland governor Robert Erlich, who criticized O'Malley earlier this month for not tightening sex-offender laws.
