Play associated audio

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and former Gov. Bob Ehrlich are facing off today as the candidates hold their first televised debate of the campaign.

Later today, O'Malley and Ehrlich will meet on the set of a Baltimore television station and try to convince voters why each man deserves another run as governor.

Recent polls show O'Malley, a Democrat, leading his Republican opponent.

The two candidates also have two more scheduled debates at radio stations later this month. A spokesman for O'Malley is also challenging the Ehrlich campaign to agree to a debate this coming Thursday. It would be hosted by the Washington Post, which is partnering with WAMU and the television station WUSA for the prospective debate.
